Many DIY projects require you to get your hands dirty, and instead of putting a ton of wear and tear on your palms, you can get a nice pair of gloves. Makita offers the Advanced Impact Demolition Gloves that will make working around the house much more manageable. Makita says these gloves have increased impact protection, and you’ll still be able to use your phone’s touch screen with them on. Whether tearing up flooring or using a power drill, these gloves will give you the type of protection you’re looking for. They are ANSI-rated abrasion level 3, meaning the gloves are good for simple DIY projects, whether construction or working with electronics.
You can pick up a pair of these gloves from Amazon for $26.99. They have a 4.5 out of five average rating and come in three different sizes — medium, large, and X-large. You’ll probably want to make sure whoever you’re buying these for doesn’t already have a pair of work gloves. If they don’t, then Makita’s option will be perfect.
