Superior design & materials enhance fit, function, and durability. Featuring DuPont™ KEVLAR® back for flame and flash protection. Lean short-cuff design ideal for tactical ops. Dual-layer palm features WRX and Armortan® treated premium goatskin leather from the world famous Pittards™ Tannery in England. The WRX treatment instills excellent water repellency keeping them supple after repeated exposure to water and perspiration. The Armortan® process encases the leather fibers in ceramic for 25% more abrasion resistance than similar untreated leathers. The elasticized wrist ensures a secure fit and keeps out foreign objects. Over-wrap fingertip design keeps the seam away from the fingertips for maximum tactility and durability, preventing fingertip "blow-outs". Strategically placed pads protect the knuckles and fingers. Leather cradle reinforcement prevents abrasion of the KEVLAR® from weapon slides. Nylon loop on wrist allows easy donning and attachment to carabiners.
