I'm an oilfield worker and recently, the company we're working for, required these gloves to be worn. We had a variety of gloves to choose from but I went with the Mechanix.
According to the Mechanix website, these gloves were designed for work on oil rigs. There are a lot of things I like about the glove... a lot.
First off, these gloves are real easy to get off and on. The cuff on them extends on to your wrist and it's made of spandex/neoprene type material. There is a velcro strap on it which will allow you to adjust your fit. You can still slip the glove on and off, even without undoing the strap. Excellent cuff. Way better than the Mechanix Wear MCW2-08-011 Zone 2 Cold Weather Glove, Black/Grey, X-Large.
The grip on them is pretty good as well. There are hand railings all over where I work and these gloves do a really good job of gripping them. Also when swinging a hammer. You need to watch it when they get oil based mud or fluids on them though. If that happens, it's easily wiped off on your coveralls and the grip comes right back.
The knuckle protection is pretty good as well. I was hammering on a hammer union the other day and it was in a tight spot. There were a couple times where I felt my hand brush up against a pipe while I was swinging but I barely felt it. If I didn't have these gloves on, I definitely would have torn some skin off.
The fingertips on them seem pretty good as well.Read more ›
I was attracted to the specifications. Reviews were generally positive, but I was bothered by reports of size and stiffness. I ended up buying them, and they've been great.
When people talk about stiffness, I expected something like those first-gen soccer goalie gloves that protect fingers. Or those welding gloves that don't bend at the fingers at all. But these gloves are totally responsive. I've had no issue at all. I'm especially impressed by the separation between the rubberized fingers and the back of the palm.
As for the size, I've got long fingers and large palms. I bought the large. These are my first Mechanix Wear gloves so I can't compare to others in the line as others do. But I can say that these are easily the most comfortable gloves I've ever worn--of any stripe. Long days of work tend to swell my palms, and the gloves become a second skin. Comfy.
I'm pleased by their match to the work. They grip concrete, wood, and cardboard well. I'm using them in the winter months here in Japan and have no issue. Oil isn't what I'm contending with, just water and sweat, I suppose. They have "basic" drying time, so I wish I had a second pair to alternate. This is my first year volunteering. If I come back, then I'll get another pair.
I'm careful around glass and such--these aren't speced to that kind of thing. No tears yet. I'm most concerned about the claim against crushing.Read more ›
These ORHD Safety MPact gloves were designed for use by offshore oil rig operators due to the safety colors (red polyurethane palm inserts and fluorescent yellow patches) and protective qualities. These are probably the toughest Mechanix gloves I have seen. The standard Mechanix gloves lack a lot of the padding and rubber inserts that are found on the ORHD.
The ORHD sizing is a bit off. As another reviewer mentioned, the size you buy will be one size larger than what you normally wear. For example, the other reviewer said he typically wears XL but had to order a Large ORHD. I typically can wear Medium (or Large) standard Mechanix gloves, but I ordered a Medium ORHD. The Medium felt a tad too large, so I could have gone with a Small ORHD.
These gloves are very stiff at first, but the knuckle protectors aren't as stiff as the Mpact Mechanix gloves. The polyurethane finger/palm padding reduces a lot of the sensitivity that you would expect with thinner working gloves. The ORHDs almost feel like welding gloves. They can be quite warm, but are overall comfortable to use. The protection they offer is considerably more than standard gloves.
It would be better with external stitching and a more flexible palm/finger pad design.
Overall: 4/5 stars
