Ready for a glove that’s easier to put on with wet hands… and easier to peel off your sweaty digits? You might be surprised by the solution.
DAMP HANDS and gloves are the original dangerous liaison: a perfect match that irritates skin and nerves. For decades, glove manufacturers thought the answer to easier donning was adding powders and other “detackifying” agents or lubricants to reduce drag between gloves and skin. The answer, as it turns out, isn’t more powder—it’s a smarter material.
The inside of Natural Extensions Slide nitrile gloves employs a unique microtexture that both reduces tack and enhances slippage. Counterintuitive, right? You’d think adding texture to the inside would actually increase drag, but the right texture harmonizes with your skin in the same way snow or rain tires are designed to channel the weather.
It’s hard to get excited about gloves, but what’s cooler than something that reduces wear and tear on that most vital tool of all: your hands? We tried them, and they really do glide on and off easily. These days, with practices busier than ever, it’s nice to know that damp hands don’t have to stand in the way of productivity, comfort or safety.
