Named after the ancient Roman battle glove adorned by gladiators in combat, Cestus was created in 2010 after decades of hearing feedback from glove users and seeing firsthand the design flaws of other gloves. Since our conception Cestus has been providing top-quality hand protection for a variety of industries, thanks to over 30 years of experience in gloves and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by our management team. After re-defining impact hand protection in the oil and gas industry, Cestus has been making waves in multiple other job fields including mining, welding, extrication, general utility, and more. While our glove offering is ever-growing, our passion for providing ergonomic, comfortable gloves that won’t sacrifice fit or functionality is unwavering. We have been proudly headquartered in the Pacific Northwest out of Portland, OR. Worksites across the globe are choosing Cestus for the ergonomic details, intelligent glove design, exclusive protective materials, and top-notch quality control. Cestus is proud to provide gladiator-tough gloves for working warriors that are on site day-in and day-out.
