A puncture resistant glove is shown which includes a puncture resistant layer disposed on non-puncture resistant portions for protection of a wearer's digits. The puncture resistant layer includes a series of shields of puncture resistant material which overlap at the joints to protect the joint, but allow flexing of the joint. The glove may also include accordion-shaped zones which allow easier flexing and extension of the glove. The resulting glove provides protection for the hand while maintaining a good fit and being comfortable.
