Dirty Rigger gloves take the hands-on approach to the entertainment industry

by Sarah Simonovich November 09, 2018

When Dirty Rigger set out to create the best products for hard-working entertainment professionals, they did so by utilizing real-time feedback to drive their product designs. This approach has led to them quickly becoming an impressive global entity among manufacturers of rigging tools. 

Dirty Rigger is a part of Le Mark Group, an international manufacturer and distributor of tapes, flooring, and accessories to the arts and entertainment industries since 1982.

Among their range of crew wear, Le Mark distributed rigger gloves from leading manufacturers. However, they felt that they could offer something different for industry professionals, something that was simply better. Starting from scratch, they created an entirely new range of rigger gloves based on user input and professional feedback. This mission created Dirty Rigger.

Rigging accessories that fit like a glove

Beginning in 2010, Dirty Rigger started offering their own gloves and rigger tools and accessories. Today, they supply over 120 distributors in over 50 countries.

At Mountain Productions, we recognize and value the drive to create products from scratch to fill a void in the market. In fact, we have a similar story with our in-house product, the MTN BOX.

We are proud to carry Dirty Rigger gloves and rigger tools because we use them ourselves and can attest to their durability and performance.

You’re sure to find the perfect pair for your needs, whether it’s heavy duty gloves with high grip or a pair more suited for general use.

Here are some of the Dirty Rigger products you can find at shopmtn.com:

Dirty Rigger Gloves

Not all gloves are created equal. That’s why, when you need a helping hand, you want a glove that fits, well, like a glove. View our glove selection below to find the perfect pair to meet your needs. And if you’re wondering what size is right for you (we carry Dirty Rigger gloves in sizes XXSM to XXL), you can download our Dirty Rigger’s Glove Sizing Guide here.

Comfort Fit

For a general use rigger glove that provides comfort and protection in the entertainment rigging and production industries, the Comfort Fit Rigger Gloves are a must. These synthetic leather gloves feature a fitted design that moves with your hands as you work. There is a terry cloth sweat wipe mounted on the thumb-side of each glove so you can wipe the sweat off your brow as you work.

The classic Comfort Fit Rigger Gloves are the best-selling gloves out of Dirty Rigger’s product line. You can find the same level of comfort and protection in both the Comfort Fit Framer Style Rigger Gloves (which offer a 3-finger framer style keeping your thumb, middle and index finger free ) and Comfort Fit Fingerless Rigger Gloves options.

These gloves are ideal for general rigging, loading, running cables, film/set/scenic work, and camera operation.

SlimFit

Dirty Rigger’s SlimFit gloves offer the same great features, protection, and comfort of the standard rigger gloves, but in smaller sizes to accommodate smaller hands. These gloves have a synthetic palm construction with embossed leather in the key wear areas, providing great multi-surface grip. They also have an airprene knuckle pad and 4-way stretch material, allowing the gloves to move with you as you work.

These SlimFit rigger gloves are available in the classic full-fingered style as well as framer style and fingerless options. All three styles are available in sizes XXSM to MED.

These Dirty Rigger gloves are ideal for use with general rigging, loading, cabling, film/set/scenic work, camera ops, and rope handling.

LED Light Gloves

When working in dark situations, sometimes you need a little extra light. But when you need both hands free, working with a flashlight is a challenge. Dirty Rigger’s GlowMan LED Light Glove provides a handy source of light with a super bright, thumb-mounted LED with a 140-lumen output light.

This product combines I-Lume LED technology by Fibretronic® with their top-quality rigger gloves. Additionally, the GlowMan LED Light Gloves has built-in touch screen compatibility on the index finger and thumb for easy access to most touchscreen devices.

High Grip

Designed specifically for entertainment riggers, the SRT™ High Grip Glove is a heavy-duty rigger glove constructed of ultra-durable synthetic leather and double layered/double-stitched key wear areas. A silicon-embossed palm and fingers provide superior grip for grabbing cables, metals, plastics, and anything else you might encounter, regardless of inclement weather.

Winter Weather

When working in cold, winter climates, Dirty Rigger’s Sub-Zero™ XC Cold Weather Winter Rigger Gloves provide breathable insulation for even the most extreme temperatures. A 40gsm 3M Thinsulate® lining and Hipora® water-resistant membrane keep your hands warm from palm to fingertips. Heavy duty synthetic leather provides both durability and an effective grip. Additionally, these gloves have a 2” adjustable cuff to lock out the elements. These are available in sizes MED to XL.

Summer Weather

No matter how hot the temperatures get, you still need to protect your hands while you work. Venta-Cool™ Summer Rigger Gloves are constructed of high ventilation materials that allow air to pass through and refresh your hands as you move. Despite their ability to keep you well-ventilated and cool, they still maintain a high level of protection on the palm-side with a synthetic leather base. Micro-perforation in the base expels sweat while a second articulated layer with reinforced double-stitched seams supports resistance to abrasions. Available in sizes SM to XXL.

No matter the work or the season, Dirty Rigger gloves from shopmtn.com can lend a helping hand.
