Download Flyer Where to Buy

An Ergotech product, this IMPACTO glove is half finger. Made with nylon spandex and black suede leather cover. Sorbothane pad in the palm. Elastic wrist support with hook and loop closure.

  • Provides impact and vibration protection
  • Breathable, stretchy and comfortable
  • Wrist support minimizes extension and over flexion of the wrist to prevent RSI such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Tendinitis.

Sorbothane® a thermoset, polyether base, polyurethane material that combines high-energy absorption with faultless memory. Its liquid-solid properties allow it to simultaneously absorb shock and isolate vibration even at high frequency ratios. Sorbothane is used in anti-impact and anti-vibration gloves, tool grip kits and anti-fatigue insoles. Sorbothane offers 94.7% shock-absorption, positioned at point of impact to reduce pain, jarring, fatigue and risk of injury.

Sizing - Gloves

Proper size is important. Follow the guidelines below to determine your correct glove size. To determine glove size, with fingers extended measure circumference of the hand across the knuckles at the base of your fingers (don't include the thumb).

Glove Size
Hand size
Hand Circumference
XS 6  6" - 7" / 15-18 cm  
S 7 7" - 8" / 18-20 cm
M 8 8" - 9" / 20-23 cm
L 9  9" - 10" / 23-25 cm
XL 10  10" - 11" / 25-28 cm  
XXL 11 11"+ / 28 cm +

Finger Styles

  • Gloves are available in Fingerless, 1/2, 3/4 and full fingers.
  • Full fingers offer best hand protection.  
  • Open finger gloves ensure full dexterity and tactile feedback.
  • Full finger gloves provide maximum protection.

Abrasion Protection

  • Gloves are available without leather for use in delicate operations or inside work glove or with leather cover for better abrasion protection.
  • Suede leather ensures best grip.
  • Grain leather is smooth and provides longer wear.
  • Pearl leather is soft and ensures better dexterity.

VEP Padding

VEPs are solids that mimic the behavior of liquids, which allows dissipation of shock waves better than any other material. The "solid-liquid" nature of VEP absorbs shock waves in all directions at once, reforming to its original shape at a rate that is slow enough so as not to exert outward pressure that could cause reverberations, but fast enough to regain its original shape before the next shock.

  • In laboratory tests, VEP has proven its ability to absorb up to 500% more shock than foam of the same thickness
  • The unique manner in which VEP dissipates impact energy, makes it an ideal material for the improvement of health and safety in industry and commerce
  • VEP padding is positioned in or in combinations of multiple places on the hand: palm, back of hand, fingers, thumb web area
  • VEP is also used for body protectors and cushions to dampen impact and vibration
  • Typical thickness of gloves are 1/8” (3 mm) to provide excellent shock absorption and impact dissipation while allowing tactile feedback
  • Also available in 3/16” (4.5 mm) and 1/4" (6 mm) thickness for specialty applications
