Just arrived this afternoon. Kartboy branded Mechanics Gloves.




The perfect thing to wear while your installing your next Kartboy Part.

Reasonably priced at 20 bucks a pair. Be the envy of all at the next track day/ Auto cross. Keep the wife happy with clean fingernails.

Available in Medium, Large and Extra Large.

you can order directly from the kartboy website here
Wearables

Heck Pick up a Tee and a Shop Apron to be all pimped out.

Those are pimp! I use the heck out of my Mechanix gloves... even for gardening and stuff. Would love to order a pair of these, but medium being the smallest size, I'm afraid they'll still be too large for me.

How do they handle a bit of oil on the fingers?
I have had a pair of mech gloves and a bit of oil on the fingers and that was it.

Cheers
I don't understand. Do you like a bit of oil on the fingers? or, do you not want the oil to permeate through glove?

OK i'm soaking each finger in different "shop nasties" one is used motor oil, acetone, coolant from the CNC machines, and some kerosene ( Jet A actually) So far its been about an hour. things look good. Its defiantly wicking up into the fingers but it hasnt deteriorated the materials yet. I'll let it go for another hour and pull it out.

I seemed to have lost my gloves in my recent move so I am interested too. Is there a sizing chart for finger length, finger to wrist, or something like that?

One glove brand's medium is another's large :)

Are these the same as Mechanix brand gloves? If so, which model? That would make for an easy way to check sizing...
