PLEASE NOTE: There is no such thing as a NEEDLE PROOF glove. Gloves are a layer of added protection, not a SOLUTION. Gloves will protect you under certain Circumstances, not all circumstances. Proper search techniques should always be employed. Turtleskin gloves are tested to Turtleskin standards of cut resistance and against puncture resistance to a specific amount of pressure measured in lbs. per foot with a specific gauge of syringe common among people you may encounter. Any other than a syringe or sharp objects you may encounter at a higher amount of lbs. per square inch than the gloves are rated at for protection may result in the glove being penetrated.
