About the glove

Each glove in the series is carefully constructed — designed for fit, but also very cost-competitive. The lightweight, 13-gauge nylon shell provides dexterity and grip and is more lint-free than polyester. A polyurethane — grippy but not sticky — flat coating on the palm and fingers makes the 400 series excellent for dry-grip applications.

  • The BK401 is black nylon with gray coating — conceals dirt and grime. 
  • Our BK402 is white-on-white, making it easy to identify foreign particles on the glove — ideal for inspectors and quality control. 
  • BK403 is black nylon with a black coating, a tough-looking concealer for grimy projects. 


  • Polyurethane coating on full fingers and palm. Ideal choice for dry and light oil applications. Delivers excellent grip, even against oils, fats, and greases. 
  • Polyurethane coatings improve tactile sensitivity relative to other coatings. 
  • Smooth grip enhances abrasion resistance. 
  • The 13-gauge nylon shell material fits snugly and ensures excellent dexterity. 
  • Uncoated back and wrist help improve ventilation. 
  • A full knit wrist — seamless and stretchable — provides a snug fit and prevents dirt, debris, and cold from getting inside glove.
