Winner: TraffiGlove TG3010 Classic Cut Level B Grip Gloves

TraffiGlove TG3010 Classic Cut Level B Grip Gloves

If you're a delivery driver, you don't need gloves that are all singing and all dancing. TraffiGlove TG3010 Classic Cut Level B Grip Gloves do the basics brilliantly, providing great breathability during summer and maximum level 4 protection against abrasions, scuffs, tears and scratches. They do all of this without packing a tonne of padding into the liner, meaning they remain incredibly lightweight for accurate interactions with small letters and parcels.

What We Love:

  • Open back allows cool air to pass through the glove
  • Lightweight design allows you to accurately interact with packages and parcels
  • Lack of a full coating is essential in summer
  • Maximum level 4 resistance to abrasions and tearing

Editor's Verdict: Lightweight and versatile, the open back section allows air to pass through the gloves naturally to release hot air, odour and bacteria.

Ejendals Tegera 295 Waterproof Thermal Work Gloves

Delivering food or similar frozen material in a cold store van means your hands routinely come into contact with sub-zero temperature material.

  • Reinforced fingers prevent stubbing yourself on boxes and packages
  • EN 511 accredited for use in sub-zero environments

Rigger gloves are regularly used by HGV drivers, freight workers and haulage professionals because of their thick, broad design and great resistance to snags, scuffs and scratches. Supertouch TekHide Premium Rigger Gloves 21053 are a great choice for people looking for hard-wearing gloves for everyday use.

What We Love:

  • Broad palm and extended wrist provides maximum coverage against hazards
  • Tried, tested and loved by HGV and lorry drivers
  • Our favourite for heavy-duty tasks out on the road
  • Thicker, heavier design is better for handling bigger crates and freight 

Editor's Verdict: If you frequently find your hands getting cut up with scratches and scrapes, look no further. Rigger gloves are a staple in driving, delivery and haulage. Suited more to the later due to their thicker, bulkier design, there's no better design for lorry driving.

Customer's Verdict: "Excellent glove at the price. Used in the haulage industry" Matthew ★★★
