With over15.5 k reviews and 4.7 ratings, these MedPride Nitrile Gloves are latex-free, powder-free nitrile gloves are durable with 3.5 ml thickness and ideal for when you are working with paint and other substances that may irritate your skin. Note that resins dissolve latex but not nitrile, which makes it an ideal material for gloves.


Another (more stylish) option for nitrile gloves is the SAS Safety Raven as at 6 ml of thickness, they're more resilient and offer a textured grip for tool handling. They score 4.6 stars with 350 reviews.


With 4.5 stars and over 2.2 k reviews, the Nasum 8200 Face Cover is one of the best workshop safety items, as it is both goggles for eye protection and a respirator since you may inhale fumes or vapors from paint that irritate and harm your lungs.

It is fairly lightweight and lined with elastic silicon that is comfortable and seals firmly around your face. The filter cotton is also replaceable, making the respirator reusable. Bear in mind that the goggles are not detachable, and if damaged, you may need to purchase a new unit.


For improved compatibility with other types of eye protection equipment, the 3M Half Facepiece Disposable Respirator is a good alternative to a full face cover. Not only is it comfortable and light to wear, but it's excellent at filtering out most vapors. At 4.7 stars and 200 reviews, you cannot go wrong with this respirator. Be mindful that it is disposable, and be sure to use it before its expiry date.


One of the best eye protection workshop safety gear is the DEWALT Goggle Concealer, with 2,000 ratings and over 4.5 stars, it is beloved by the veterans as its firm coating provides a good grip for extra protection and durability. Wearing safety goggles is highly recommended when using spray paints and rotary tools.

These goggles are scratch-resistant, anti-fog, and light-weight. They also provide a wide field of vision and are designed to support wearing glasses underneath. That being said, it may not fit snuggly against your face if you have a smaller than the average-sized nose and might create a gap rendering its anti-fog feature useless.


A universal fit is what makes the SolidWorks Safety Goggles a great addition to your safety gear. Compared to its counterpart, it is lined with a softer rubber and designed to fit any face size, making it more suitable for smaller faces, while being comfortable since the rubber provides no pressure points. Its other features include a wider field of vision, support for having glasses underneath, and being anti-fog, anti-scratch, and providing UV protection. It scores 4.5 stars with 3.3 k reviews.
