Smith’s: Enhance Safety With Smith’s New Cut Resistant Field Dressing Gloves

Superior Protection for Outdoor Enthusiasts

No matter the chore, none is a tougher assignment than cleaning fish or gutting big game. No matter how you do it ― these tasks are both messy as well as dangerous. Mixing razor-sharp knives with wet, fin and fur cleaning and processing often results in nasty nicks and cuts. Or worse, wounds often large enough to require medical attention.

The engineers at Smith’s, realizing there has to be a safer way to accomplish these tasks, developed their all-new Cut Resistant Field Dressing Gloves. By incorporating a high-performance polyethylene (HPPE) material into the glove, the user’s hands and fingers are armored against razor-sharp gill plates, fillet knives or errant skinning knives. Smith’s new Cut Resistant Field Dressing Gloves offer peace of mind during big game processing, fish filleting, and more.

The HPPE gloves are ANSI Cut Level A5 rated, yet remain flexible and pliable. The HPPE material is 4X stronger than top-grade leather and 10X stronger than steel. Smith’s new gloves are rigorously tested to ensure they are free from any harmful chemical residues that may contaminate foods, ensuring they are 100% food-safe. The Smith’s shrink-resistant gloves are breathable, yet keep hands dry, and are both hand and machine-washable using mild detergent (hang dry).

Smith’s new gloves are also puncture-resistant and non-slip ― designed exclusively for when the going gets wet, slick, or bloody. These versatile gloves are perfect for food preparation and processing, shucking, grating, peeling, carving, carpentry, metalwork, sharp materials handling, or any task where you need protection from sharp implements. The Cut Resistant Field Dressing Gloves carry an MSRP of $15.99.
