These gloves definitely lean towards the premium end of Lincolns glove offerings. With a top grain leather palm and kevlar stitching these gloves are extremely durable. The premium breathable materials will make it easy to have these on all day while you weld. After wearing these myself for a while, I can say that they breathe well and can easily be worn for a long period of time. The new design and pattern is very unique and sets these gloves apart from Lincolns other offerings. The black leather is on high wear contact points on the gloves while the white leather is in the creases for more flexibility and easier movement.

Now we are going to take a look at a more budget friendly pair of MIG gloves from Lincoln Electric. The Lincoln Traditional MIG/Stick Welding Gloves are a great option if you are looking for an affordable pair of MIG gloves but still want that brand name quality and look.

Traditional MIG Gloves

These gloves are made with flame and heat resistant split cowhide and soft cotton interior for added comfort. These gloves also have kevlar stitching and thumb pads in high wear areas to give these gloves a longer lifetime. No need to stress about size with these, one size fits all. This is a classic design that many companies make, these gloves are always a safe bet for any welder.

Lincoln TIG Gloves

The newest TIG Glove offering from Lincoln is the MX Series Premium TIG Welding Gloves. These gloves have just been released this month (July 2022).

These gloves are made with the DuraHide leather that offers abrasion protection while you drag your hand along the welding surface. The palm is unlined, providing a full range of motion. I wore these gloves and they were very comfortable, my movement wasn't limited at all. The new styling and design Lincoln did with these gloves makes them unique such as the back of the index finger being leather while the others are cowhide. If you are in the market for a pair of TIG gloves from Lincoln, these are the ones to pick up.

Looking at a more budget friendly TIG Gloves, we have the Lincoln Leather TIG Gloves.

These gloves are made with form fitting goat skin leather and offer an unlined palm for ease of movement. They are designed to be lightweight and durable with kevlar stitching. If you wanted these exact gloves but made with a premium grain leather, take a look at K2983. The premium gloves offer more heat resistance and are sewn with a different finger structure for comfort. 

General Use / Driver Gloves

If you are looking for a good general all purpose glove, Lincoln has you covered. The Lincoln Cut Resistant Driver Gloves offer great protection and comfort without breaking the bank.

These gloves are internally lined and stitched with kevlar that provides the ANSI A2 cut protection.  Made with premium leather and cowhide with elastic in the top hand part to ensure a secure fit. Whether you are working in a warehouse or operating a power tool, these gloves will keep you protected and comfortable. 

Gloves for Women 

According to some sources there are around 420,000 welders in the United States. Only 6% of welders are women, or around 25,000 women welders in the United States. If you are a woman that welds then you know the offerings are pretty slim across the board. Thankfully, Lincoln has you covered with gloves. 


The Lincoln Womens MIG/Stick Welding Gloves are a great option for welding and general purpose gloves. These gloves have kevlar stitching and padding on contact points so they are built to last. These gloves are unique because they come in sizes that will fit a woman's hands better than other gloves on the market. 

Another option from Lincoln for women are the Women's Steelworker Welding Gloves. These gloves are another great option so check them out and compare them to the other women's gloves Lincoln makes.
