About the glove 

These gloves are the ultimate multitasker. Anti-impact, hi-viz, cut-resistant gloves topped off with our serious slip-resistant, micro-pour nitrile palm coat.  

This Brass Knuckle® SmartShell™ leader starts with a machine knit, ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) shell that offers ANSI cut level A5* protection. The glove naturally shapes to the natural contours of the hand and flex points in the fingers, wrist and palm, helping to ensure maximum comfort and increased compliance. Sonically welded to the back of the glove, thermoplastic rubber (TPR) padding offers protection from contusions, smash injuries, object strikes, pinch-point injuries to tip of each finger, and other impact hazards. And the gritty black nitrile palm coating offers excellent wet grip.  

Serious protection. Keep-it-on comfort. Excellent value. Our BKCR4499 is changing the hand protection story. 


  • Sandy finish has millions of tiny pores that absorb oils and liquids for increased grip. Nitrile finish enhances abrasion resistance and cut protection while improving wet grip. 
  • Double-stitched in high-wear areas — fingertips, index finger, and palm — for extended wear. 
  • High flexibility and top-rated ergonomic form make this glove one of the most wearable gloves in its class. 
  • Back-of-the-hand TPR padding for durable, long-lasting resistance to abrasions, contusions, punctures, and cuts. 
  • UHMWPE knit shell provides ANSI cut level A5 protection without bulk. Strength-to-weight ratio is 8 to 15 times higher than steel. 
  • Meets the American National Standard ANSI/ISEA 107-2010 for high-visibility safety apparel. 
  • Elastic cuff with hook-and-loop closure for secure, stay-on fit.
