Eric, a multi-skilled warehouseman and forklift operator, uses JLF Pro® gloves from the handling and assembly range.
In my job, as well as driving pallet trucks and trolleys, I regularly have to handle and transport all sorts of objects and materials that are potentially dangerous to my hands. Their rough surfaces can also have sharp edges, as on wood, cardboard or scrap metal. I really have to be careful because my hands can get damaged very quickly through rubbing, cuts, snags or splinters. To say nothing of heavy loads that damage the skin when carried.
I might as well tell you that finding gloves that can protect me from all these risks, making the handling easy while being pleasant to wear, is a complicated business. Most of the ones I used were either too thin to provide me proper protection, or too thick to let me handle anything precisely. I’m not talking about the other unpleasant sensations when wearing it (the “stifling” feeling in the hand, dampness etc).
As of today I’ve been wearing the JLF Pro gloves from the handling range for about 3-4 years and frankly I like them a lot. There’s a choice for different situations, different needs, they are really practical in everyday life.
My favourites? They’re the Tyrer gloves. The blue and white. The leather is just fantastic to wear. It’s soft, so it lets me move my fingers easily while protecting me well, unlike other gloves that often have very thick and hard leather. I really appreciate this feeling: I feel my hands are quite free in these gloves, they “breathe”, there is air. I find that I can do so much with these gloves, my fingers are agile, I can grab and carry all kinds of things easily. I know they’re meant for handling but I can’t help using them for other purposes. I’ll tell you what, I think they’re so good that I managed to get a pair for at home too!
