Everything about gloves.
Saturday, February 28, 2009
When I was asked late last year by the IGA (International Glove Association) to write an article (about gloves of course) for the annual IGA feature in Occupational Health & Safety magazine, I knew immediately that it would be helpful to enlighten OH&S subscribers about gloves and the internet. After all, we are (GO Gloves™) the oldest glove company on the net.

Although I wouldn’t exactly call Sue Whitney a Glove Guru, she certainly has a talent for extending the life of Electrician’s Gloves. See her Blog and her glove project. (Pictured)
For those of you in the know, Electrician’s gloves become obsolete after 6 months unless retested and recertified. It’s the law and it’s a good one.

Part of the initial verse from the oldest official song in the United States military seemed fitting to announce the arrival of the official white Military Dress Gloves of the US Military to our “hard to find” glove stock.
These military dress gloves are the official gloves purchased by DSCP (Department of Defense clothing supply unit) and made exclusively for the DOD in the USA. .
It took a little stiff arming to get my hands on these gloves even though I serve on the DOD Glove Technical Sub-Committee. Now they are an exclusive at GO Gloves and our military customers no longer have to settle for a second class dress glove. Even you die hard Dress Blue men and women warriors!
I thought of this classic Beach Boys song when I was drafting an article for “Modern Contractor” about anti-vibration gloves and (HAVS) Hand-Arm Vibration Syndrome. It’s a worthwhile read for those of you who work with any type of vibrating tools in your work.
You can also see our newest glove to prevent HAVS. See the new Ergodyne ProFlex Anti-Vibration Gloves. (Shown) Click on image to enlarge.
I’m not sure these gloves will keep giving you excitations but they are the only ANSI certified glove for this problem.

You can own a pair of historical gloves by going to the auction (click the Title). The auction ends Feb. 15th at 9:59pm EST – 14 days from the exact moment Santonio Holmes made his historical catch to win the Super Bowl for the Pittsburg Steelers. (Click on image to enlarge the photo)
All proceeds go to the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.
The last I looked the bidding was up to $7,400.00. That’s sure one hot pair of gloves I’d love to get my hands on.

We sell a competing brand of Heated Gloves (shown) and Heated Mittens but these are not associated with the recall. My guess is that the heating elements are located around the palm of the recalled gloves which receive a great amount of strain and stress.
I know OR and they are a very respectable company and known for quality gloves.
Of interest, the heating elements in our Heated Gloves and Mittens are contained in the back side (non-palm side) of the gloves to avoid damage. But you can never win because people complain they don’t get hot enough. However, at $25 bucks verses $260.00, I think they work fine providing a safe and comfortable room temperature. What do you think?
