The All-Purpose Mining Safety Glove Introduced in 2011, the Rig Lizard ® quickly became the number one choice for HSE managers at mining companies around the world. It evolved from a single glove to a comprehensive product line featuring cold and warm weather versions, five different grip options, and a knit impact Rig Lizard ® with a sandy nitrile palm dip. The patented back-of-hand IR-X ® Impact Exoskeleton™ has a highly flexible design, providing protection from smash and pinch injuries without causing hand fatigue. The Rig Lizard ® is comfortable, dependable, and built to last. All gloves in this series are launderable, which helps extend glove life.
