"Made from dragon hide or similar. Protect your hands from smelly compost and vicious plants."
— Description[src]

Protective gloves are gloves that protects the wearer's hands. They are made of dragon hide or similar materials, and are useful in Herbology for handling odorous compost or vicious plants.[1] Protective gloves are listed in the first year Shopping List as part of the required uniform while attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2]


When Harry Potter was ordered to sort out rotten and good flobberworms for potion ingredients as a detention, Severus Snape forbade him from using protective gloves.[3]
