Before you handle a camera, broadcast equipment, light stands, or any A/V or music gear, add some extra protection for your hands and give yourself a more secure grip with Gig Gear's Gig Gloves Version 2. This pair of extra-large gloves improves on the first version in a number of ways, including stronger nylon threading throughout and redesigned fold-over fingertips that don't leave the fingers exposed. Additionally, a hook on each glove allows for fastening the two together or attaching them to a clip or belt loop.
These Version 2 gloves borrow the rest of their features from the originals. The first three fingertips are touchscreen-compatible for convenience when using smartphones, tablets, and cameras with touch-enabled monitors. Breathable polyester mesh offers comfort by enabling air flow to keep hands from overheating in warm weather, yet also helping block the cold when the temperature drops. Padded palms with durable PVC synthetic leather provide a strong, secure grip to protect against drops when carrying equipment--even in slippery conditions. Equally important is the flexible design that allows for freedom of movement, which also reduces the risk of drops, cramps, and fatigue. The neoprene wrist cuffs are fastened and unfastened quickly and easily via hook-and-loop closures.
Discreet yet also safety-conscious, the Gig Gloves are black but feature yellow, bendable, rubber-like TPR accents on the back to make you visible enough when loading and unloading in the dark--especially in streets or parking lots where vehicles are moving. The TPR also gives you a little extra protection against bumps, scrapes, and abrasions. Gig Gloves are made to be worn comfortably from the beginning of the job until the end, so you can keep your hands and your gear safe.
