How Cut and Puncture Resistant Are the HexArmor Gardening 3092 Gloves?

The ThornArmor 3092 Gloves provide the highest cut resistance possible (Level F), meaning that you can use them with jagged thorns, sharp cacti and prickly roses. Reinforced stitching and three layers of SuperFabric mean that you can have faith that the HexArmor Gloves will completely protect your hands. For reference, SuperFabric is the same material used in law enforcement gloves to protect the wearers hands from needles.

What Is SuperFabric?

SuperFabric is multiple layers of fabric separated by a guard, that prevents needles and other sharp items from reaching the skin. SuperFabric allows the gloves to act as a barrier between your skin, and needles, thorns and more. HexArmor boast that it was SuperFabric which allowed a major company to reduce their hand injury rate to zero.

What Kind of Vegetation Can I Use the Gloves With?

The HexArmor Gloves are suitable for pretty much any vegetation. Uses include:

  • Thorns
  • Roses
  • Shrubbery
  • Bushes
  • Hedges
  • Needles
  • Cactus
  • Evergreens

The gloves aren't limited to this list. It just gives you an idea that these gloves are suitable for pretty much any greenery focused outdoor work.

Why Should I Trust the HexArmor 3092 Gardening Gloves?

The ThornArmor 3092 Gloves offer excellent protection against a wide range of mechanical risks. They have been tested in accordance with EU standards to ensure a high level of performance. Please find the results below:

EN 388

Hazard Level of Resistance
Abrasion Resistance Level 4
ISO Cut Resistance Level F
Tear Resistance Level 3
Puncture Resistance Level 3

What Does This Mean?

Receiving the results 4F33 for EN 388 means that these gloves are exceptionally tough and durable gloves. Level F cut resistance is the kind of cut resistance needed for handling blades, so with that in mind you can see just how protective these gloves are. Exceptional abrasion resistance, and fantastic tear and puncture resistance leave you under no illusion just how protective these gloves are.

Which Sized Gloves Should I Choose?

Wearing the correct size of gloves will provide the most effective level of protection. To find the glove size required, measure the circumference around the knuckles, excluding the thumb. The hand should be open with the fingers together.

Please note that if you are between two sizes, we recommend that you opt for the larger of the two.

Size Hand Circumference
Extra Small (Size 6) 7 - 7.5 inches (18 - 19cm)
Small (Size 7) 7.5 - 8 inches (19 - 20cm)
Medium (Size 8) 8 - 8.5 inches (20 - 21.5cm)
Large (Size 9) 8 - 9 inches (21.5 - 23cm)
Extra Large (Size 10) 9 - 10 inches (23 - 25cm)
XX-Large (Size 11) 10 - 11 inches (25 - 28cm)

Why Are These Our Number One Industrial Gardening Gloves?

  • Three layers of SuperFabric protect against thorns, bushes and more
  • Airprene cuff keeps the hands cool and prevents overheating
  • Velcro cuff prevents debris from entering the gloves
  • HexVent near the wrist keeps the hands nice and cool
  • Reinforced index finger and pinky wrap for touching thorns
  • Double stitching ensures the gloves last through winter
  • Protective outer shell allows you to grip large amounts of shrubbery

Can I Use The HexArmor Gloves to Handle Tools and Machinery?

Despite their resistance to cuts, thorns and shrubbery, the HexArmor Landscaping Gloves retain dexterity and offer an impressive level of grip. These makes the gloves well suited to handling secateurs and other gardening and landscaping equipment. You have full movement of your fingers and thumb, allowing you to grip tools without risk of dropping them.

Are The 3092 ThornArmor Gloves Comfortable?

These gloves offer superb protection against a wide range of plants and shrubbery, but working outdoors can require comfort too. The HexArmor ThornArmor Gloves feature an Airprene cuff and HexVent window that allow cooler air to circumvent the gloves, preventing overheating and reducing hand fatigue. The double stitching means the gloves are more flexible too, meaning that you aren't using energy when it comes to gripping items and handling tools.

Do the ThornArmor Gloves Have a Secure Fit?

The ThornArmor 3092 Work Gloves are designed to fit securely to reduce the risk of handling potentially dangerous objects. With an Airprene cuff and Velcro fastening, the gloves offer reliable protection against risks caused by hand exposure.

What Weather Can I Use the HexArmor Landscaping Gloves In?

Versatile and breathable, these gloves are well suited to all-round weather. While they aren't waterproof, they are suitable for washing, so a bit of rain shouldn't damage the performance of the gloves too much. Similarly, the gloves are breathable, making them well suited to hot, outdoor work during summer.

What is EN 388?

You might have noticed that this product adheres to EN standard EN 388. EN standards ensure that the product you are buying meets the safety standards of the European Committee for Standardization (CEN), the highest standards organisation recognised by and working on behalf of the European Union. To pass any EN standard, a PPE product must undergo some of the most rigorous safety tests around.

There are many EN standards that our gloves adhere to. However, the EN standard that we’re concerned about here is EN 388. EN 388 stands for Mechanical Resistance, and informs you of your gloves' resistance to abrasion, cuts, tears and punctures.

How Do I Read the EN 388 Score?

Simply speaking, the higher the score that this product achieves, the better the product will be at resisting that hazard. Products will score between Level 0 and Level 4 for abrasion, tears and punctures, and if they weren’t tested for that hazard you will see N/A written instead of a number.

Cuts are a little different and, with the EN 388 standard rewritten in 2016, it means that gloves will either be tested to cut resistance or ISO cut resistance (sometimes called TDM cut resistance). Gloves tested to cut resistance will score between Level 0 and Level 5, and gloves tested to ISO cut resistance will achieve a score between Level A and Level F with the higher letter offering better cut protection.

Where Can I Find Out More?

This is just a brief overview of EN standard EN 388 so you know where you are standing. For further information, you can see the Introductory EN 388 Blog in our Knowledge Centre.

A specialist pair of gloves only for thorns
Tuesday, 29 September 2020  | 

I can only use these gloves on the specific occasions when I have to remove brambles, or heavy prune roses or pyracantha etc. They do work but are too stiff and uncomfortable to wear for general use and they are expensive. Another problem is that the back of the hand is not protected at all, and you have to wear leather sleeves to protect your forearms - hence only 3 stars.
You can get long leather gauntlets from other manufacturers, but they are not as reliable to protect the palms and fingers when gripping pyracantha thorns etc.
I have lots of different gloves for different situations so I don't regret buying these. Definitely worth avoiding the lasting pain and disability of septic thorns in the hand.

Pyracantha and hawthorn proof
Monday, 7 September 2020  | 

I have handled a lot of brambles, Pyracantha prunings and hawthorn clippings with no issues so far!! I haven't handled Blackthorn yet but from what I've seen these gloves would manage it.

It is a shame that there isn't an option for more full hand protection. I really don't need it it but I would pay extra for the piece of mind.

Size info inaccurate and gloves too stiff
Sunday, 30 August 2020  | 

I bought these gloves on line for my my wife so checked the size carefully, it turned out they were too big. The other issue with the gloves is that she could hardly bend the gloves, I donít have this problem so it may be that smaller sizes are stiffer.

Almost completely thorn proof
Thursday, 6 August 2020  | 

Great gloves, with just one puncture through the reinforced material. They give so much confidence when dealing with the evil Berberis you're likely to get a little careless.
Excellent customer service, fast delivery.

Great Gloves, definitely worth the price. Used it for big thorns and bramble clearing. Less protection on back of hands so be careful, but would definitely get again as a gift!

Armoured gloves

The gloves certainly do what they say, the only caveat being that the wearerís hand is likely to be unprotected in the outsides of the hand as these are largely unprotected by the armour.

Impenetrable?
Tuesday, 26 May 2020  | 

Whilst these are the best gloves Iíve ever had for thorn protection I have a cut thumb!

They are very good but nothing is impenetrable. I think what they do is increase your confidence and so you tend to grip harder until they give.

With experience and maybe a couple of injuries youíll find their limits. I wouldnít let this stop you from buying them, they are good
