This glove has no noticeable pattern of fibers or shields yet it is rated at ANSI cut level 7 (higher than many other brands). The glove also includes some ultra-high weight polyethylene and anti-microbial fibers to resist bacterial growth.

Do not use this glove in water or in dryers over 160˚F. Available in XS, S, M and L only. Sold individually, not in pairs.
