Knowing the debilitating effects of blisters, it was the goal of the STKR engineers to develop a solution that offered full coverage protection to the areas of the hand that are affected by intense friction, rubbing, heat and moisture. In order to create the necessary armor, STKR has produced Tough Skin. Tough Skin is designed to protect the most vulnerable areas on your palm from blisters and vibration. They are a very thin, protective layer, offering full coverage protection of the palm, as well as the saddle area between the index finger and thumb. They slip easily over your hand and are lightweight and do not hold in heat and moisture like traditional gloves. If additional protection is needed, one can wear them under work gloves and still retain all the same benefits. They are great for yard work, mowing, shoveling and raking. They are also the perfect protection when rowing, waterskiing, jet skiing, biking and weight lifting.
