Hatch Introduces The Protector™ - A New Anti Microbial Glove For The Postal Market

January 15, 2006
Temecula, CA

Developed specifically for mail handlers, the Protector™ Model AMPG250, is an all-purpose glove with Hatch’s Extreme Grip™ patches on the fingertips to facilitate mail handling. This glove features an antimicrobial element in the fabric (Ag) which inhibits bacterial growth and provides anti-odor performance. The Protector™ also features unique insulation properties to help regulate temperature, keeping the user cool in summer and warm in winter. Further, its wicking properties offer increased comfort in warm weather as it wicks moisture away from the skin.

A further benefit to this design is the ability of the Protector to reduce static electricity, an often uncomfortable hazard of the job. The Protector Model is offered in black with a suggested retail price of $13.00. Available in February 2006.
