9 Best Pairs of Milwaukee Gloves To Keep Your Hands Safe

Milwaukee has been a pioneer of the power tool industry for close to a decade and they continue to innovate with their range of Milwaukee gloves. Where other Power Tool brands begin to fall behind, Milwaukee has made an amazing effort to create a viable workwear and PPE line that can compete at the same level as top Workwear brands

Milwaukee’s gloves embody the passion that they show when designing and manufacturing tools and it shows in their build quality, toughness, and snugness of fit.

In this article I’ll be highlighting various Milwaukee gloves that’ll not only keep your hands safe but also stand the test of time so you can spend less time replacing PPE and more time on the job.

Here are 9 Pairs of Milwaukee Gloves WE LOVE!

1. Milwaukee Leather Gloves

Made from goatskin leather, also known as Moroccan leather, Milwaukee’s gloves will not only protect you on the job, but keep your hands nice and toasty. As well as being durable, goatskin is known to retain heat but also allow you hands to breathe.

The natural oil present in goatskin known as lanolin makes the leather very supple and flexible for ease of movement when compared to other types of leather.

Their leather gloves are designed with SMARTSWIPE Technology which allows you to use touch screens without taking the gloves off.

A particular detail we love is the double stitching that not many people mention, ensuring maximum durability in high stress areas such as the wrist and finger joints. This is a much stronger way to secure leather and adds to the longevity and quality feel of the gloves.

The gloves also have an added layer of leather stitched into the palm increasing the durability further and protecting your hands from shocks and vibrations. Overall these gloves live up to the heavy duty and high quality level you’d expect from Milwaukee.

2. Milwaukee Demolition Gloves

Milwaukee has a few variations of Demolition gloves, each made with different situations in mind.

These Demolition gloves are reinforced with Armortex (a ballistics material) to provide extra hand protection. Armortex is a fabric, that includes kevlar thread. This increases the strength of the material and resistance overall.

Armotex also works great in wet and oily situations increasing your grip when working jobs such as auto mechanics,

The gloves also employs Smartswipe technology with a handy tab on the index finger. Smartswipe is part of the glove (usually the finger tip) designed with a material to allow you to use touch screens.

These gloves are designed to take a beating in heavy use cases all whilst keeping your fingers and especially your knuckles protected from harm.

3. Milwaukee Impact Demolition Gloves

This Variation of Milwaukee’s Demolition Gloves, feature an impact resistant material, which reduces the shock absorbed on the fingers and hands.

There are hundreds of glove brands specialising in cut resistance and palm protection for gloves but hardly any focus on protecting the back of the hand. Milwaukee’s impact demolition gloves attempt to solve this issue.

The back of the glove features Enhanced TPR (thermal plastic rubber) material which absorbs the shock of impacts. This material is also slit at areas of mobility to ensure you can still move your hands around.

The gloves are tested up to 5KG from 1 metre drop height, this is akin to an angle grinder being dropped onto your hand.

The gloves are EN388: 2121XP Certified including impact and finger resistance. Many gloves claim to be “impact resistant” but don’t have the certification to legitimise the claim. Milwaukee’s gloves do.

They include the same Armotex protection as the demolition gloves so you can expect a similar build quality.

The back of the thumb features a cloth for what I like to coin “sweat removal” technology and is surprisingly useful for dabbing sweat off the brow when heavy in work. With use you’ll find yourself wondering why all gloves don’t have a wiping cloth built in as standard, especially on a hard-working hot day.

4. Milwaukee Winter Demolition Gloves

Previously featured in our winter workwear article, Milwaukee’s Winter Demolition gloves are a life saver for those long winter work nights.

The padded palms keep your hands safe and snug whilst the built-in sweat wipe is again surprisingly well thought out and well executed feature.

These gloves offer an extra added windproof layer and dual acrylic liner meaning that your hands will stay warm whilst working in the cold.

They also feature all the things you expect from a Milwaukee demolition glove; Smartswipe Technology on the index finger, TPR material on the back of the hand and the handy sweat cloth built in.

And if you are cold this winter, we also stock heated workwear from Milwaukee and let me tell you, once you get a heated jacket normal jackets just don’t feel the same.

5. Milwaukee Fingerless Gloves

These gloves are designed to provide ultimate dexterity when handling small object, because let’s be honest, you can’t pick up those small screws in a pair of bulky gloves!

The gloves are breathable and light-weight ensuring an overall comfortable fit even when worn all day. Moisture wicking lining takes any sweat away from your skin, helping to keep your hands dry no matter how hard the job.

Built to be as sturdy as you’d expect from Milwaukee, these gloves are perfect for those nitty gritty jobs on site.

6. Milwaukee Hybrid Leather Gloves

Milwaukee’s hybrid leather gloves are 50% goatskin leather, 50% synthetic and 100% Glove. The back of the hand is synthetic leather which allows more flexibility.

The tough goatskin leather is on the palm providing added grip and durability where it matters most.

It holds up to task well and the stitching between the synthetic leather and goatskin leather is top notch. Small details like this really increase the longevity of a product

On the subject of stitching, the keystone thumb stitching allows a large range of movement. Simply put by stitching in a triangular shape around the thumb you can add extra material, enabling full range of motion rather than the limited motion you may experience with leather gloves.

7. Milwaukee Free Flex Gloves

Made from nylon knitted fabric with a synthetic leather palm, Milwaukee’s Free-flex gloves are a great all round glove for your everyday tasks.

They are light weight, breathable and comfortable to boot. Although they aren’t your heavy duty, heavy protection, gloves they still fulfil the EN 420 and EN 388 safety standards.

The free flex gloves feature Milwaukee’s Smartswipe technology in the knuckle, palm and fingertips meaning you wont have to take your gloves off to access your phone or tablet.

Finally the glove has a reinforced thumb seam allowing full thumb movement.

8. Milwaukee Thermal/Winter Gloves

There’s nothing worse than picking something up in the cold and feeling like your fingers are going to fall off.

Keeping your hands safe from the cold isn’t just about keeping warm in the winter there are jobs that require you to handle cold equipment all year round.  that’s where Thermal work gloves come into play.

Milwaukee’s winter gloves are cut resistant nitrite gloves with an elasticated wrist to ensure a comfortable fit.

And if you are cold this winter, we also stock heated workwear from Milwaukee and let me tell you, once you get a heated jacket normal jackets just don’t feel the same.

9. Milwaukee Nitrite Gloves

When working with anything sharp, you’d expect cut resistance from your Milwaukee gloves. Thankfully Milwaukee has a range of Nitrite gloves varying in levels of strength for cut resistance.

Depending on your job or the job at hand there is a level of protection that you’ll require and that also includes protection from elements.

Milwaukee’s Nitrite gloves all include a reinforced palm which increases the grip and protection of the glove. They also comply with European Standards for cuts, levels of which depend on the level of cut resistance purchased.

Again with most of Milwaukee’s gloves their Nitrite gloves use Smartswipe, this time it is included in the palm and fingers allowing you to use touch screens without removing your gloves.
