Lineman worker with Youngstown Gloves

Back in 2002 we had an idea...

Innovate, create and provide a concise line of performance work gloves built for industrial and construction workers. Youngstown quickly gained a following of brand enthusiasts who appreciated the durability and quality of our gloves.

Throughout the 2000’s, we have continually expanded our distribution and our extensive offering of technical hand protection. In addition to our outstanding durability, we became known for our Waterproof Winter gloves and Kevlar® Lined Cut-Resistant gloves. In 2005, Youngstown became the first performance glove licensee of DuPont™ Kevlar® brand fiber. In 2007, and since, we have had the Internet’s #1 selling Waterproof Winter Performance Glove - the Waterproof Winter Plus.

In recent years, we have continued our first-to-market heritage by launching over a dozen styles of work gloves that are the first of their kind with our Arc Rated Series. We took our innovative, 3D glove patterns and applied them to the highest quality leathers. The result was a No Drip / No Melt work glove that form fits to the hand and lasts for months. Using that template, we have added in some of our hallmark technologies (waterproof and cut resistant) to create a top-of-the-line offering of work gloves that are flame resistant, heat resistant, arc rated and form-fit.

As you can see on our site, we take great pride in producing quality work gloves. The term quality is often used loosely by marketers; however, it is something we take very seriously. We never ask ourselves how we can make something cheaper. We ask ourselves how we can make it better.

We hope that you will give Youngstown a try and see for yourself. We are always happy to help and to hear from you. You can contact us at any time with questions, comments or feedback.

#1 in Durability

Youngstown Quality

Every glove that has a claim of a safety rating or level has been tested by an accredited third party laboratory. We are willing to provide copies of our lab test results for customers who require having this information on file. Discover our key tests that we perform on our gloves.

We are unwavering in our commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction.

Youngstown Glove has spent 15+ years refining our ergonomic, 3D glove patterns to create work gloves that form-fit to your hand for superior dexterity and comfort while also lasting a long time in the field. It is challenging to strike the right balance between durability and comfort. We study wear points and analyze customer feedback to constantly tweak our patterns to achieve higher and higher levels of in-field performance.
