Rigger gloves are a heavy duty glove made from thick suede and leather. Key parts of the glove such as the knuckle, palm and finger tips are reinforced. These essential gloves offer the right level of protection for those whose job often requires them to lift heavy, awkward shaped objects. The sturdy design also provides the wearer with a secure grip, which enables builders to carry paving slabs, breeze blocks and roofing tiles safely, especially in cold, wet conditions. Scaffolder’s would be unable to work in the cold or wet without them. Gardeners frequently use a lighter weight glove, based on the rigger glove. These provide good protection against rose thorns, stings, rusty nails and many other things which can injure a gardener.
