Specialty Leather Work Gloves

Webster’s definition for specialty is a distinctive mark or a quality of special class of objects. As we highlighted on our main Leather Work Gloves page, there are only two types of leather glove textures: grain leather gloves or split leather gloves. However, there is a host of particular leather glove types within each category. We’ve developed one page that highlights all the special leather gloves MCR Safety manufactures:

Black Leather Work Gloves

As we highlight in our article, “ Our Best Black Gloves, ” black is the color of choice for many of our customers. Why is there so much demand for black leather gloves? It often comes down to the fact that black work gloves hide dirt. Thankfully for our customers, we supply over 50 types of gloves with some amount of black on them! And, yes, we even carry black leather work gloves!

High-Heat Thick Leather Work Gloves

MCR Safety offers a variety of leather work gloves that protect wearers from contact heat. As we highlight in our blog on ITC Heat Testing, leather gloves are ideal for high-heat environments.

Leather Tactical Gloves

Who uses leather tactical gloves? While they are most popular among police and military personnel, anyone looking for a nice pair of leather shooting gloves with a superb tactical design will appreciate our tactical leather gloves.

As we highlight in our “ Tactical Glove blog, ” many gloves come close to being titled a “Tactical Glove.” However, color plays a significant part in determining whether a glove is classified as tactical or not. Because they are often used by military and law enforcement personnel, tactical gloves tend to be offered in muted colors, including black, dark gray, “military 499” tan, dark green, or military-approved camouflage patterns. Also, because dexterity is so essential, police leather gloves identified as tactical gloves should be lightweight — bulky or all-leather gloves aren’t well suited for the types of jobs that require tactical gloves. Police need skin-tight leather gloves to perform their job safely.
Here is a recap of the core features of tactical gloves:

Tactical Icon
  • Comfortable
  • Excellent hand movement
  • High tactility and dexterity
  • Lightweight
  • Muted colors
  • Stretchable material
  • Snug fit

Check out our 962 and 963, made with synthetic leather in the palm. Be sure to notice the unique addition to the palms of both gloves.

Leather Fingerless Work Gloves

There is nothing like the natural feel of one’s fingers when grasping parts and operating tools. Synthetic leather fingerless gloves offer excellent comfort levels compared to those where your fingers are fully encased in leather. When you need back-of-hand and palm protection, yet the freedom to complete any work task, you’ll want to check out our fingerless gloves.

There is nothing like the feel of a goatskin 4800 leather work glove that allows your fingers the freedom to touch parts directly. Here is a look at some of the top-selling leather fingerless gloves we offer:

As we point out at various places across our pages, customers often ask us – What are the best leather work gloves to buy? The answer for many is a leather fingerless glove that allows for the natural feel of one’s fingers. Our FT2902 are some of the best black leather fingerless gloves you’re going to find!

Long Leather Work Gloves

You may think we’re referring to welding gloves, as you’ll find most made with a gauntlet, and for the most part, we are talking about welding gloves. However, we’re also referring to long leather gloves that protect any worker needing extra protection on the job. Let’s face it: our hands serve an essential part of our day-to-day work; however, they represent only a small part of one’s body that requires protection.

Many workers need protection well up their arms to guard them against hazards like sparks and flames. When you need protection over your wrists and forearms, you’re going to need a gauntlet cuff, like those offered by our long leather work gloves.


MCR Safety’s MU3644 is 5-inches long, one of our longest leather work gloves. Also, this brown leather glove is double-stitched with DuPont Kevlar, making it one of the most durable leather work gloves available.

Elbow-Length Leather Gloves

Looking for something a little longer? How about one that is 8-inches long? Check out the Big Jake® glove with 8-inch arm protection.

Our 1746 leather work gloves are made with heavy-duty leather all the way up the arm. While standard length is 8-inches since we manufacture our leather gloves in directly-owned factories, you tell us how long you need it, and we can make it!


How about 10”?  Check out the 4892, with its 10” cow leather cuff with Adjustable flame-resistant strap.

Leather Work Gloves Made in the USA

Domestic manufacturing increases the cost of almost any product, especially leather work gloves.  However, MCR Safety does still manufacture a small selection of leather gloves in our U.S factories. Yet, the cost does considerably rise due to higher labor costs in the U.S.  As we highlight on our Leather Manufacturing page, making leather gloves is extremely labor-intensive, which means you can expect to pay more for gloves made in the USA.

Currently, MCR Safety’s leather manufacturing is reserved for our sister company, Shelby Fire. Fire-fighting equipment is manufactured for the most extreme conditions, which requires a need for domestic manufacturing. With this said, if you’re interested in leather work gloves made in the USA, please leave us a comment here, and we will provide pricing and availability.

Personalized Leather Work Gloves

When you buy a nice pair of leather work gloves, you plan on those gloves remaining yours over the course of a day’s work. One way to ensure that happens is by personalizing your gloves with your name or initials. We have traditionally added this feature to our leather mechanics gloves, but have recently expanded the options. Here are the leather work gloves we offer that feature personalization:

Touch Screen Leather Work Gloves

Do leather gloves work on touch screens? Yes, if they’re engineered with additional facets that allow for touch screen functionality. The demand for touch screen gloves has been on the rise during the 21st century. Some factors affecting this demand are:

  • Increased use of touch screens on the job, such as with iPads
  • Smartphones used for phone calls
  • Answering both job-related and personal text messages on smartphones
Shadow Grass Blades Touch Screen Icon
Shadow Grass Blades Options
MO100 and MO200 are touchscreen-friendly and feature the
popular Mossy Oak Shadow Grass® Blades® camo pattern.

Most modern touch screens use capacitive sensing to pick up the touch. This technology is based on a glass insulator coated with a transparent conductor. When a finger—which is conductive—touches the screen, the capacitance changes, and the screen’s circuitry not only picks up this change but also can zero in on the exact location of the touch on the screen. That information is then used to activate an app, use a keyboard, respond to a phone call, etc.

Here are the top-selling touch screen leather work gloves MCR Safety offers:

Leather touch screen gloves are designed to be used with electronics. Combine this feature with the premier look of shadow grass, and you’ve got yourself one of the best leather work gloves available.

Windproof and Waterproof Leather Gloves

Do you sometimes find yourself working in the rain, around water, or in the wind? Wet and windy environments are a major concern for those who work in outdoor locations, such as Rochester, Minnesota or Boston, Massachusetts. Wind speeds can reach an average of 12.6 mph in Rochester and 12.3 mph in Boston. Winter work in certain parts of the country requires an inner waterproof membrane to ensure a worker’s hands stay dry! Without that extra inner liner, wind can strip away all that warm air that has built up in the glove. Rest assured, MCR Safety makes a handful of waterproof winter work gloves made with leather. The added liner also keeps cold, wet moisture away from hands, ensuring greater heat retention.

Here are MCR Safety’s best waterproof leather work gloves:

Our MU3644 is made with goatskin, which provides excellent water-resistance. Combine that with an inner liner, and you’ve got one of the best leather gloves for use around water.

Oil Resistant Leather Work Gloves

MCR Safety makes a lineup of leather gloves that have a special treatment applied to the leather during the tanning process. This is an important note, as the treatment will not wear away after days of work. It is built into the hide itself after the tanning process is completed.
