Redeem™ is one of the first of its kind on the market for comfortable, eco-friendly protective gloves. Each pair incorporates recycled materials equivalent to a 500ml plastic bottle, or 10g of polyethylene terephthalate (PET).

Made from 50% recycled polyester, Redeem comes complete with biodegradable polybag packaging and ensures a secure grip, excellent abrasion resistance and a secure fit.

Recon™, is manufactured with 44% recycled materials, comes complete with paper strap packaging, reducing single-use plastic to help protect the environment. This glove provides heat protection up to 250⁰C alongside high-grip performance and a breathable coating. glove skytec sky-recon
