Compton, Calif., March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Introducing the Tillman 1457: a version of America's best-selling drivers glove with an ANSI A7 cut-resistance. Born in the field, the 1457 is composed of Tillman's legendary bourbon cowhide split leather back, and top grain Cowhide palm. Dupont™ Kevlar® lined, the 1457 achieves an ANSI A7 cut-resistance with ANSI A5 puncture and ANSI A4 abrasion ratings. "With the implementation of the Dupont™ Kevlar® lining we are able to offer the same comfort and durability workers demand from our drivers glove, but now with enhanced versatility to handling sharp objects and working with rough surfaces" said Andrew Carpentier, a member of Tillman's product development team.

This Tillman 1457's rugged yet refined exterior is lightweight and built to perform. The smooth top grain palm features a keystone thumb to provide workers with the most natural feel possible. Tillman included double stitching on the forefinger to provide enhanced strength and durability. Featuring a cinch closure and rolled cuff, the 1457 provides workers with a comfortable, snug fit that helps refrain dirt and debris from entering the glove.

The Tillman 1457 is great for your everyday work application (construction, agriculture, warehouse work, etc.) and can also be used for light-duty welding. When lightweight comfort and durability are called upon, turn to the Tillman 1457.
