What Makes Our Leather Linesman Gloves so Superior?

As a company that originally sold only leather work gloves, we’ve always been passionate about leather at Superior Glove. Although our glove selection has expanded quite a bit since 1910, we still stand by the unparalleled sturdiness and abrasion resistance that leather gloves offer: it’s safe to say that there’s a reason why we still proudly offer a wide variety of leather work gloves today.

One of the styles of work gloves we’re most known for is our leather linesman gloves.

“But what makes these gloves so special?” you might find yourself asking.

Well, in short: it’s because of the leather we use.

As we’ve established, here at Superior Glove, to say that we have a deep appreciation for leather is an understatement. We make work gloves out of many different types of leather – including pig, cow, goat, buffalo (below), and even deerskin. Depending on the application that the gloves are being designed for, certain leathers are more advantageous; they all offer varying degrees of softness and durability.
Lineman work gloves
Because of this, we’ve discovered that when it comes to linesman gloves, there’s one type of leather that beats out all the rest: horsehide. The horsehide is what gives our linesman gloves their immense softness and unmatched flexibility, and also, what makes them last for such a long time. It’s also what protects your hands against even the harshest of abrasion threats.
Horsehide Leather Lineman Gloves
Because it offers such a large number of advantages that other materials don’t, it’s no surprise that horsehide is in such high demand – which makes it very expensive. In fact, believe it or not, it’s actually a whopping 5x more expensive than goat or cow leather. So why do we use it?

In a nutshell: because we believe you – and your hands – are worth it.
While goatskin is a tough leather that’s great for creating work gloves that are suitable for other industries, it just doesn’t compare to the level of protection that heavier horsehide provides. Since we know that working as a linesman is very demanding of your hands, we want to ensure that every time you’re required to climb up a telephone pole or install a transformer, you’re using the best hand protection available on the market.

Combined with other features like Waterstop™ (a fluoro-chemical water-repellent emulsion treatment), gauntlet cuffs for added protection, and reflective 3M Scotchlite™ taping to for high visibility (even in the dark!), you can’t go wrong with our leather linesman gloves.
