Polyco Deepsink

Post by tigga76 »

Since Marigold Bathroom size Medium are currently not available from my usual dealers, I ordered the Polyco Deepsink as an alternative for the first time.

The material of the gloves is thinner than the Marigold Bathroom. The manufacturer's information from Polyco on the gloves is for size medium = 7. In the area of the hand and fingers, I would take it for size 7.5. Here the glove is bigger than the usual 7.0.
In the area of the forearm, the gloves are rather narrow, so I'm curious how it will affect longer wearing.

The first impression is at least a good quality glove that goes longer than the usual household gloves. Total length approx. 40cm (16 ").

After three hours of house cleaning, the first balance:
Sensible household gloves, you have a sufficient sense of touch and grip.
You sweat, of course, but with the thin velor, like all other gloves, it is bearable.

I was skeptical about the tight cuff, I have to say that I am positively surprised. It was never uncomfortable, on the contrary, the gloves did not even slip off.

I think it was not the last use of these gloves.

Also in use as washing-up gloves since yesterday. I'm still very satisfied. Excellent fit and the cuffs stay in place.
Deep Sink: The name says it all.

Polyco/Marigold both re-branded all their gloves and stamped a giant unattractive logo on them all, and the quality suffered along with it. My original ones were up to my elbow, but newer pairs seem to be several cm shorter.

They've had three iterations of Deep Sink gloves and every time they get worse :/ I only have one pair left of the originals and they had much better grip and felt much more robust and thicker than the next two 'generations' of Deep Sink.

Pity. :-/

I wonder which generation I got. Do you know from when to when each iteration was sold?
