How Comfortable Are the A210 Canadian Rigger Gardening Gloves?

Plenty of gardening gloves are uncomfortable to wear, especially as they don't have a lining that is built for comfort. These gloves feature a cotton interior, providing superb comfort even after a long day of work. The cotton design is snug and warm, reducing hand fatigue and improving productivity.

How Durable Are the A210 Rigger Gloves?

The A210 Rigger Gloves use a cow split leather coating and a reinforced thumb patch to offer you excellent hand protection.

You can use these gloves across the summer without damage to the material.

How Flexible Are the Canadian Gardening Gloves?

Although outdoor jobs require a high level of protection, you still need the flexibility needed to handle items, use tools and work in the garden. These gloves offer a good level of dexterity. You probably wouldn't want to use them for really tactile and tricky jobs, but they are dexterous enough for weeding your garden and planting a few bulbs.

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.

Good professional gloves

The rigger gloves received are of good quality and being large, fit me well. The leather appears thick and as they meet manufacturing regulations, I expect them to survive usage for a long time, Exactly as I hoped for when ordering.
