PRODUCT REVIEWS: GARDENING GLOVES

This month the KG Team have been trying out a range of gardening gloves suitable for light tasks around the garden (not suitable for pruning)


BEST BUY
WEED MASTER BAMBOO GLOVES

With the environment in mind, these gloves are made from natural bamboo fibres which are naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, helping to reduce the bacteria that thrive in clothing and cause unpleasant odours.

KG VERDICT
These are a particularly comfortable pair of gloves and at the price offering good value for money. The stretch back and wrist areas ensure that they slip on easily but at the same time offer a very snug fit. The rough texture of the latex coating secures a good grip and waterproof protection at the front. Excellent where nimble fingers are required and very good value for money.

TOP PICK
PROFESSIONAL WATER REPELLENT GLOVES

Advert

These Professional Water Repellent Gloves are made from a combination of high grade foam latex coupled with a flat latex coating on the palm, which offers good grip, dexterity and breathability.

KG VERDICT
These gloves offer excellent waterproof protection and the slightly rough textured nitrile palm and fingers area afford excellent grip when handling tools. The elasticated wrist prevents extraneous matter such as compost slipping into the glove. An excellent general purpose glove, especially for light tasks about the garden, whether in sun or rain.

TOP PICK
SHOWA GRIP MASTER


These washable, general purpose Showa Grip Master Gloves have a nitrile coated palm, a breathable back and an elasticated wrist, plus anti-bacterial treatment to reduce odours.

KG VERDICT
A little more heavy duty than the other gloves this is a well-made glove that can be used for an excellent range of tasks in the garden, whether its hand-weeding, planting out, or keeping the hands protected when digging, raking or hoeing. The stretch back offer very good flexibility and the latex coated palm and finger areas are relatively thicker, so will keep palms and fingers protected throughout prolonged use.
