Milwaukee Demolition Gloves

Milwaukee Gloves

Over the recent years, Milwaukee Tool has been expanding into work wear.  Until Milwaukee got into this sector, it has been dominated by a couple large companies.  Now I am not knocking these companies, but they these companies have been lacking change and innovation.  Since Milwaukee has entered this sector, there has been a ton of new innovation and practical additions, such as heated jackets.  Well now Milwaukee brought to market a new set of gloves, their demolitions gloves, model 48-22-8733.

I have bought a ton of gloves of the years, only to realize my money was just wasted.  The biggest job that always wrecked my gloves were my roofing jobs.  After about ten minutes, I could always see the tips of my fingers.  Now I am not saying these are the best gloves ever because I really haven’t tried them out.  I am writing this for two reasons.  First I just wanted to let you know about these gloves and secondly, wanted to get your feedback.  If you have experience with them, let us know.  Leave a comment below, in our forum or on our YouTube video.  So just in case you haven’t heard about these gloves, here a little bit of information on them.

Since they are called demolition gloves, we would expect them to hold up and provide comfort.  Now as far as comfort, they seem like a pretty good fitting glove that is comfortable, so mission accomplished with that request.  The gloves even have a breathable lining.  As for durability, Milwaukee designed these with Armortex finger tips.  If your not familiar with Armotex, they make some tough stuff.  So I am happy that the finger tips are not only reinforced, but reinforced with a quality product, better than the traditional leather we see.  So what about innovation?  Smartphones are part of our everyday life and if you wear gloves there are only two things that can happen.  First you try to swipe of use your phone and you get a dirty screen or a scratch.  However we just find that most of the time, the phone won’t respond when we are wearing gloves.  Here is wear Milwaukee said enough is enough and made this gloves with their Smartswipe knuckle which allows the user to user their knuckle to use the phone.  Know your not going to be able to write a love letter to your girl, but its good enough and easy enough to make a call or answer a call.  Plus the knuckle is usually the part of the glove that isn’t the dirtiest part, so win win.

Here is another cool feature to this glove.  How many times have you been walking around the jobsite and see guys with huge streaks across their forehead.  While the first couple of times it was funny to see, you then realized you were one of those guys also.  So yep you guested it, Milwaukee did something about this also.  There is a built in terry cloth sweat wipe.  So right above your thumb, there is a terry cloth to help wipe sweat away.  Now I am not saying you won’t have this streak across your head, but at least you will be able to keep the sweat off your forehead and out of your eyes.  Each glove even has  small red loop at the top that will aide in getting your gloves on.  Yes, even the knuckles are protected with a nice rubber padding.

Now again I am not saying these are the stop all gloves and the last pair you will ever own, but there was a lot of thought that went into these gloves.  You can tell these are not just some re-branded gloves with the Milwaukee name on them.  You can tell that people at Milwaukee took their time, did their research, talked with contractors and solved a problem.  Nice Job!


  1. I use these gloves all the time, they have them at HD for only 15 bucks that is a stupid good price for gloves of this quality! Keep it coming #TIACREW

  2. Thanks for posting these gloves. Good to get the word out on these great gloves. I love them. They have saved me several times from cuts. Props Eric.

  3. want to try these glove because they look like they would be comfortable but in Canada they are $29.95 and I can’t see why they are double the price from the USA. unless they drop in price some I will wait.

  4. I’ve tried different gloves like these and latex palm gloves and whatever else out there, but always come back to the leather work gloves. They are my favorite, and I’ve tried using others, but just can’t get into the habit of using these types of gloves. Maybe one day i’ll happen across a display at a store and grab a pair. Thanks for the video! #tiacrew

  5. I tried them on at Home Depot and I have large hands unlike Mr Trump so I was a little disappointed they didn’t have XXL in stock because the XL was too small. I have to say though I do like the gloves for sure. I know the two of you are not Mechanix fans but I’m just still in love with the original. The mpact- uh- so so. But the original just moves so well with your hands and feels so natural. I’m going to now end this comment before I start sounding really weird. Great review guys. #tiacrew

  6. I have to try these out. One i love milwakuee two they look super comfy and strong and also I lost my nice pair of gloves and have been running to Harbor Freight to buy the cheap gloves!

  7. My local Home Depot just got some of these in stock. I bought a pair this morning, will be trying them out this weekend.

  8. I saw these gloves at Home Depot the last time I was in there. They looked pretty good. Large choice in gloves at this price range that is for sure.

  9. Bought a pair of these from my local Home Depot to use for work. Use them on a daily basis for everything from landscaping, to mechanical work, to changing hydraulic couplings on heavy equipment. Granted its only been about a month or so, but so far, they are holding up. Good buy in my opinion.

  10. I love these gloves they will save you hands from cuts and scratches. I used to love Milwaukee. I had there sawzall and the sheet rock gun. But I feel like now that they are owned by ryobi they have downgraded.

  11. I like the look of these gloves. But, they seem bulky to me on the palm. When I buy gloves, dexterity is what I look for in these types of gloves. If I can’t get to things (i.e. nails, switches, etc.) with them I can’t use them. In my experience these types of gloves are not meant to last, so if they last a few months & cost $25, not bad. That is why I disagree with the comment on Mechanix gloves, they are not expensive gloves I think. Of all the gloves I’ve tried these are the best. Mine last 3 or 4 months & that is fine, because the investment of protecting my hands was well worth it. I’ve tried all types of gloves from Home Depot’s, Lowes, 5 11’s, DeWalts, Blackhawk, yes I am a junkie, same with flashlights & tools. So, I’m going to try these out as well, but beating my mechanix’ impact line will be tough. Laters TIA

  12. I’m going to have to try these. My multipurpose gloves that I have been using were HF mechanic gloves, I use Mechanix mechanic gloves for less rough stuff…but it would be nice to have a decent pair of more rugged gloves.

  13. Thanks for sharing these. The gloves certainly look and sound tough as nails, and the added benefits are really convenient too. Getting heavy duty gloves on at a work site can be difficult, but the loops near the wrist should help out quite a bit.
