Hey everyone. Welcome back to the place we were testing every single glove that I can get my hands on. Today we are looking at black nitro gloves for pro. Who are they for? Pro professional collection. Going a little deep with that, Tara, let's open that up and see what's going on. Tara's going to open this up on camera so there's no funny business going on. She's going to pull a sample out of the box, have to receive it from Amazon. She's going to cut a little tiny piece out. We call that a dog bone. We're going to put it on this machine behind us and we're going to stretch it until it breaks and tell you the wonderful results if you like this sort of thing. Alright? I don't love the design of the box and I don't know why. These are another one of those. It's four mill and they're seeing a bunch of ISO stuff. But see, it was not really, it was made. Oh, thank you so much. It was made, oh, in January of this year. So this is a pretty young glove, especially for Amazon, which is great. I'm trying to find the manufacturing country. Oh, made in China. Made in China with 100% unconditional guarantee.

They kind of thin feeling. Yeah, they said this was four mil, four


Do you feel like it's

Four mil?

I'm like, maybe

Close, but I don't think it's four

Mil. I was like, do you feel like it's four mil? He's holding an instrument that tells him exactly how thick.

It's close, but no cigar. No. Okay. This feels weird. It feels a little latex to be honest. And it's like, look at how the cuff is not fitting. I don't know. There's a weird feeling to this. Yeah, and there's this film. Film on it. See that film?

Oh yes. That's some discoloration.

That's a discoloration. I'm going to do the wince test here. I could tell that was going to break super fast just by taking it out. Look, I went to, these are weird gloves. These are definitely not a hundred percent nitro. So we are doing the tensile strengthening elongation test here. What that means is we're going to stretch this sample that Christian so graciously put into the machine when it breaks, you're going to see that line go down. It is about six months old, so we're going to hold it to the R standard in the United States. The A S T M, which standard is it?

63 19 63 19.

And that means that needs to get above 500% elongation before it breaks. And a tensile strength of 14. And I'm thinking it's not going to do that. Holy cow. Look at how high it is. Yeah, it's going

To break

Early. This is the highest one we've had, so it's going to break super early. That's crazy. High flying. But the path hasn't arced yet. I knew it. I just had a feeling. So it did hit a tensile strength of 14.78. So it met that requirement, but it did fail. The elongation elongation of 254.38. That is less than we would like to see in the United States. And they just feel weird. And they smell weird. There's something going on with these gloves. I don't know what it is, but they're not passing American standards. Now, time for the disclaimer. This is just one glove. We're supposed to test 13 in a lot. You can get two failures in that and still pass. We're not going to do that because Chris won't let me. Not enough time of the day. Sorry folks. So your mileage may vary. It may be a really great glove for you. I would just choose a different one. Four Pro guess I'm not a pro. Thank you so much for watching and I'll catch you on the next test.
