As a hands-on general contractor, I find myself working with a multitude of materials every day. Framing lumber one day, trim the next. Other days, it’s digging a footer, tying steel, pouring concrete, or acid washing a deck. No matter what your application is, GRX has a glove for it.
Dexterity is a big deal to me. If I can’t feel what I am working with, I won’t wear any gloves and frequently pay the price for it. I personally like the Pro series for everyday general use. It is lightweight with plenty of dexterity and mobility.
The Tradesman series has a deer-leather palm and is also great for all around use. It is not quite as nimble as the pro series, but the Tradesman does offer more protection. So if you’re framing or handling bulkier items, this line delivers.
Cut series. These are set up with safety in mind. With multiple different styles to choose from, there is a glove specific for what you are doing. Whether you are working with glass, steel, chemicals, wood, or concrete, you're covered. I took one of the A6 700 series gloves and ran a brand-new razor knife across the back of the glove and nothing! If you work with anything sharp--razors, glass, and the like--check out the Cut Series. Check out the video on IG.

A HUGE thanks to @stanley_dirtmonkey_genadek for this live demo during our Cut Series gloves launch last month in #LasVegas. We appreciate you giving our gloves quite the hands-on test. . . . #grxgloves #griprite #gloves #workgloves #handprotection #hands #safety #safetyfirst #tools #construction #worksite #diy #weekendwarrior #comfort #fit #performance #ansi #cutresistant #garden #yardwork #summer #palmwick #grxprofessionalseries #grxcutseries #stanleydirtmonkey #stanleydirtmonkeygenadek
The ExaGrip technology works in both wet and dry conditions. It is also available in high-vis yellow for jobsites that require it. Another important feature in today’s world of technology is all the gloves I tested are touchscreen compatible, so no more ripping your gloves off just to answer a call.
GRX ProSeries gloves have PalmWick Breathable Palm Technology that allows the hand to "breathe" on the palm side of the glove. The special nitrile coating allows sweat and moisture to wick away through the palm. I live in the South and we frequently have days near 100 degrees with humidity in the upper 90% range; we sweat a lot. Moisture-wicking materials are a must.
I used a set of the Pro Series while installing a metal roof. Temperatures were near (and at times) exceeded 100 degrees. It was hot and we were pouring sweat all day. Every time we took a break for water and to cool off, I would remove my gloves and no sweaty palms! Not even the pruned-up fingers you get from swimming too long. The material on the back of the hand was wet, but dried before I went back to work. I was really pleased with how well they performed. I ran almost 1,000 screws and the gloves held up great.
Professional, Tradesman, Cold Weather, Industrial, or Cut Series, whatever you’re into, visit the website at grxgloves.com and find one that’s right for you.
Gotta go with 5 Hammers on everything I tested.
