Utility work gloves for linemen

Youngstown’ utility work glove provides more dexterity and protection.

Agoura Hills, Calif., October 22, 2010—Dexterity or protection: itʼs no longer an either/or choice with the new Leather Utility XTTM glove by Youngstown Glove Co. Designed in conjunction with linemen from Southern California Edison utility company, the goal when creating this glove was to provide an ergonomic, comfortable and flexible fit all with the safety Youngstown is known for. Created with linemen in mind, the glove is suitable for a variety of tasks for which protection as well as a high level of dexterity is needed from climbing to wiring.

“Most leather work gloves are loose and bulky and we wanted to create a leather glove in a 3-D performance pattern to give that form-fit feel but with leather,” said Max Hackett of Youngstown Glove Co. “The goal
was for hands to be safe as well as able to pick up and screw in small objects.”

Every aspect of the new Leather Utility XTTM glove was carefully thought through in order to provide the most durable, flexible and comfortable pair of gloves possible. The glove is constructed with 100 percent high-quality goatskin leather that remains soft and supple, even in wet conditions. The glove is sewn together into an ergonomic, 3-D performance glove pattern allowing for an exceptional level of dexterity and deftness.

Precision sewing results in better tactility and nimbleness, meaning the wearer will be able to securely and tightly grasp objects. Safety is pinnacle in the development of all Youngstownʼs products and the Leather Utility XTTM glove is no exception. The glove features heavy-duty double knuckle protection on the top of the hand, which helps to defend against scrapes and cuts. There is also a 2.5-inch safety cuff built in for wrist protection while climbing. The Leather Utility XTTM glove is available in sizes small through XX large.
