Which are the best gardening gloves?

April 29th, 2018 Posted In: Shop

As a garden blogger, I’m often given free gardening gloves to review.

However, I also buy them, because not all gardening gloves are the same. There are very big differences in comfort, protection and durability.

My favourite gardening gloves…

How to buy gardening gloves

Ideally you should try gardening gloves on before you buy them. I went into a garden centre recently, and managed to try on at least one of each pair of gloves without disturbing the labels. I was glad I had. All the gloves were stiff and uncomfortable. They felt cheaply made, and I wouldn’t personally want to wear them at all. There were no alternatives in the store.

Of course, everyone’s hands are different – which is why trying gloves on first is so helpful.

But I have enough faith in my favourite gloves to be able to say that I believe they’d suit anyone, so I am going to recommend three brands of gardening glove here – Showa, Cobra and Fiskars.

Of course, they aren’t the only three good gardening glove brands, but they are the three that I have worn repeatedly for quite a long time. They haven’t fallen apart, they’re comfortable to wear, and I haven’t lost them.

You may think that it is not a glove brand’s fault if you lose it. But I suspect that when we really love a pair of gardening gloves, we take a lot more care with them!

Disposable gardening gloves

If you’re doing delicate gardening jobs, such as potting up seedlings and writing labels, then I find disposable gloves (as used in hospitals) much easier to use. You can feel what you’re doing, and it’s closer to having bare hands.

However, you do throw them away after one use. I’m trying to be more sustainable in the garden, so I’m going to use these less.

I used to buy any brand, thinking there wasn’t much difference between one disposable glove and another. Until I bought a box of very uncomfortable disposable gloves.

So I’ve researched disposable gloves. There are three different choices. You can buy latex gloves, nitrile gloves or vinyl gloves.

I bought one box of each type, choosing the brands that had the highest number of stars on Amazon. I bought the same size in each brand. See below for the verdicts.

What makes a good gardening glove?

The three qualities that make a good gardening glove – in my opinion – are durability, flexibility and how well they protect your hands.

Look for extra reinforcement around the palm and fingertips. A good gardening glove should be flexible across the knuckles, so you can clench a fist comfortably. And it should fit well around the wrist. I’ve demonstrated this in the video here:

Bright colours can also be a good idea, because you can see the glove more easily if you drop it. But many brightly coloured gloves also seem to be cheaply made – marketed for how they look rather than how they perform.

So here are my favourites.

You can either buy them by clicking on the links below. They’re Amazon affiliate links, which means I may get a small fee if you buy, but it won’t affect the price you pay. And it certainly doesn’t affect my recommendation of which gloves to buy!

Or you can click on the company names here to find your local stockists: Showa, Cobra and Fiskars. The Cobra gloves weren’t available from Amazon, but the link should take you through to the right page on the Cobra website.

And do tell me if you have a favourite gardening glove you can recommend too.

I've bought several pairs of these, each of which has lasted for at least three years. They come up well after a wash (no higher than 30 degrees!), and are very comfortable. Although they're lightweight, I find they offer enough protection for most gardening jobs, with the exception of pruning big, thorny bushes. Professional gardeners speak well of the Showa range.


I was given a pair of these by Fiskars about six months ago, and have used them often since. Strong, durable and very comfortable. They've washed well for me at 40 degrees.


I haven't tried these personally, but wanted to include them as I've heard good reports of the Gold Leaf range from fellow garden bloggers. They're also endorsed by the RHS. If you're pruning thorny bushes, such as roses, then you need a strong gauntlet glove like this which protects your arms. And wear long sleeves, too - gardening scratches can turn nasty.


Nitrile gloves - I found they fitted well and were both strong and comfortable - and less likely to puncture than the other disposable gloves. They're latex-free so suitable for anyone with latex allergies. They are slightly more expensive, and, as a petroleum-based product, they're not biodegradable.


Latex gloves are very resilient, comfortable, and fit well. They're made from rubber, so they will ultimately biodegrade (albeit slowly). Generally a little bit cheaper than nitrile, but not suitable for anyone with a latex allergy. You can develop a latex allergy, but that's more likely if you're a health professional using disposable gloves every day. A gardener using them occasionally to repot seedlings is less likely to become allergic.


Vinyl is the cheapest of the disposable gloves, although the difference between 100 nitrile gloves (the most expensive) and 100 vinyl gloves was less than £1 at the time of writing. That would make a big difference if you were buying in bulk but is less important for the individual gardener. They weren't quite as well fitting or comfortable as either the latex or the nitrile gloves, and they aren't biodegradable. But they're OK to use.

Protect Your Hands: 5 Types of Garden Gloves

Even novice gardeners know that a good pair of gloves are an essential gardening tool. But, with all the different options, choosing a style can be overwhelming. Here’s a guide to the different kinds of garden gloves … and what they’re best used for:

Leather Gardening Gloves

These usually don’t fit snugly and can be downright bulky, but they’re durable, strong, and great for heavy lifting and pokey jobs like pruning rose bushes, dealing with wire fencing, or pushing a heavy wheelbarrow. Some extend all the way up your arms to offer extra protection (great for dealing with thorny bushes).

Cotton Gardening Gloves

Cotton gloves are an inexpensive option and are readily available in home-improvement stores and garden centers. But cotton gloves have their limitations. Breathable and lightweight, they’ll keep your hands clean while digging in the dirt and will protect against blisters while you yank weeds. But they aren’t waterproof, and won’t provide much protection against chemicals, cuts and pokes.

Disposable Gardening Gloves

These aren’t technically gardening gloves, but can be useful for handling manure and pesticides. Since they’re disposable, you can just throw them away when you’re done. Look for disposable gloves at your pharmacy, medical-supply store or grocery store.

Rubber Gardening Gloves

Working in damp soil or cold conditions? Rubber gloves are great for sealing out moisture and keeping the chill at bay, though they can be a little sweaty. Make sure you choose outdoor gloves rather than indoor cleaning gloves – the ones made specially for outdoor work are more durable.

Stretchy Gardening Gloves (Spandex or Lycra)

These are often made of cotton on the back, with a different-colored, stretchy palm. Well-fitting, elastic, and often waterproof, these gloves are durable, forgiving and comfortable. They sometimes even offer added sun protection. Great when you need a flexible glove that also offers added protection against cold or damp.

Things to Consider When Choosing Good Nitrile Gloves

Just like with any type of clothing or equipment out there, it is necessary to take into consideration just a few important aspects when it comes to choosing the best nitrile gloves for you to wear.

Granted, not all gloves will fit the same, since our hands come in different sizes and shapes. To give you a good idea of what to look for, here are some things we recommend for you:


First things first, it is important that you know just what kind of size hands you have. Besides just the standard small, medium, and large, there are also nuances in between that can make or break your glove-wearing experience.

In other words, getting a glove size too small or too big can interfere with what activities you do with them. That is why it helps to measure your hands: using your dominant hand (i.e. the one you use the most to write and carry items), measure the circumstance around just below your knuckles in inches.

A rule of thumb is that small size corresponds to 6 to 8 inches, medium 7 to 9 inches, and large over 9 inches. That said, look for gloves that not only say the letter size on it, but also perhaps the numerical size, if possible.


While not as important, the color of your nitrile gloves can make the gardening experience just a bit brighter, especially if they come in colors besides just white or clear.

Multiple colors can even be practical in preventing cross-contamination from happening, in particular if you handle a lot of different plants and other items that otherwise should not interfere with each other.

If you happen to be careful and well-organized, then color-coding your gloves can make life a lot simpler and more efficient for gardening use in the future.

Industrial Versus Exam Gloves

Aside from size and color variants, there are also a couple of different types of nitrile gloves to consider, depending on your line of work. Here, we break them down into two categories:

1. Industrial Grade Nitrile Gloves

As the name suggests, industrial nitrile gloves are best used for activities that involve the use of many chemical products, such as that in the automobile and tattoo industries. They are extremely chemical-resistant, and so they make for a solid pair to wear.

2. Exam Grade Nitrile Gloves

On the other hand, exam grade (also known as medical grade) nitrile gloves are best used for environmental situations, especially when it comes to handling things that can carry pathogens and other harmful diseases.

They are used in hospitals and laboratories, and they can be useful for other lines of work as well.

* As for gardening purposes, either type of nitrile gloves should work, since both types do not discriminate towards or against one field of work over the other when it comes to planting and handling fertilizer and pesticides.


Measured in millimeters, the thickness of nitrile gloves will depend on just what you will be working with. In industrial settings, thicker gloves such as six to eight millimeters should do the trick, since it will be less likely that chemicals will seep into them.

However, exam grade nitrile gloves might be thinner, perhaps around five millimeters, since having a thinner surface allows for more flexibility and dexterity when it comes to managing fine-tuned equipment.

As for gardening, it will depend on just what you are using at the moment that will determine which gloves will be best to wear for the occasion. If it is merely planting and fertilizing the soil, then thinner gloves such as exam grade ones should do the trick. For herbicides and other harsh chemical products, thicker gloves would work better.


This aspect refers to how it feels on your hands, as well as how it will react to the items it touches. Whether you tend to work in dry or wet environments, it is a good idea to find a pair which can withstand both conditions. If you need a grip on items, then a diamond-shaped pattern on the fingers can help you out.

In addition, some, if not all, nitrile gloves have a chlorinated coating on them, as means of preventing stickiness and therefore making it easier for you to put on and pull off the gloves for a smoother transition to work.

Powdered Versus Powder-Free Gloves

Similar to point #5, powdered and powder-free nitrile gloves refer to whether it has a chlorinated coating on them, in order to make it easier to put on and take off the gloves.

For instance, powdered nitrile gloves are easier to put on and can absorb extra moisture from handling otherwise wet objects, while powder-free ones have the chlorinated finish which makes for a cleaner, powder-free experience.

Are Nitrile Gloves Safe for Gardening?

By Jackie Carroll

Heavy cloth or leather gloves are the best choice to prevent blisters.

The best type of gloves to wear in the garden depend on the task. Thick cloth or leather gloves provide good protection and help prevent blisters when you’re performing heavy tasks, such as digging, cultivating or raking. When using garden chemicals, such as fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides, nitrile gloves are a better and safer option.

Handling Chemicals

Nitrile gloves are the best choice to protect your hands from garden chemicals because they provide an impermeable barrier between your hands and the chemicals you use. When they fit properly, they allow a firm grip that helps prevent accidents, even when handling wet or slippery objects. In addition, they don’t tear from minor scrapes.


Although it isn’t as likely as with latex or rubber gloves, there is a slight risk of an allergic reaction to nitrile. If your hands sting and itch while using the gloves, remove them immediately and try accelerant-free nitrile gloves instead. These gloves only protect your hands from chemical exposure -- they don’t provide protection from thorns and other sharp objects, and may tear when they come in contact with them. Torn gloves allow chemicals inside and hold them against the skin, increasing the risk of absorption.

Disposable vs. Reusable Nitrile Gloves

Whether a nitrile glove is disposable or reusable depends on the thickness, which is measured in mils. A mil is equal to 0.001 inches. Gloves that are 14 mil thickness or greater are considered reusable. Thicker gloves are more expensive, but they offer more protection. Discard disposable gloves in a plastic bag as soon as you finish applying the chemical. Wash and dry reusable gloves before storing them in a plastic bag for future use. An easy way to clean your gloves is to wash and dry your hands while wearing them. Always inspect the gloves for tears before using them again, and never use nitrile gloves for more than one season.

Using Nitrile Gloves

Unlined gloves that fit properly will give you more dexterity and allow you to handle chemicals with reduced risk of accidents or spills. Tight gloves are uncomfortable and more likely to tear, while loose ones slide around on your hand, making it difficult to handle things without fumbling. Wear long sleeves and pull the cuff of the glove up over the sleeve for best protection. When applying chemicals overhead, fold back the glove to form a cuff that may catch chemicals that run off your gloves and prevent them from running down your arm.
