Whether it’s for a holiday or birthday, this Tools Under 30 Dollars Gift Guide Series shows you important, yet somewhat uncommon, tools that any gearhead would want.

Today, let’s talk about Mechanic’s Shop Gloves.


Working on cars and trucks can be really tough on your hands, which are the most important tools you’ve got.

So, while they’re not technically “tools” themselves, shop gloves are a toolbox essential that every wrencher should have. And we’re not talking about ordinary utility work gloves either—mechanic’s gloves offer critical protection for your hands, without sacrificing your touchy-feely tactile sense (so you’re not constantly fumbling with loose nuts and hardware).

Oh and while these gloves mitigate the effects of heat and abrasion, they’ll keep your mitts relatively clean too, win-win.

You can get mechanic’s gloves in pretty much any size and there are many different styles. Some offer superior heat protection, some are resistant to specific chemicals, and many just offer good all-around protection for your paws.

And they’re not just handy (pun intended) for garage work, they’re good to have around the house for woodworking, landscaping, spray painting, and plenty of other household chores too.


But the best part about giving work gloves as a gift is that, even if the recipient already has some, they’ll certainly appreciate a replacement pair when the time comes. Better still, there are plenty of different mechanic’s glove options, so you’ll definitely be able to score a pair for well under 30 bucks.
