Materials

Performance Gloves

Leather

Extremely durable and contains many natural physical properties such as oil/water resistance as well as abrasion and cut resistance

Neoprene

An oil resistant substitute for natural rubber, neoprene is extremely flexible, comfortable and resistant to degradation from the sun.

Synthetic Leather

Provides unmatched durability and dexterity in the toughest applications. It is breathable, washable and will not shrink, stretch or harden.

Lycra

Used as a backhand material or fourchette insert between fingers for greater breathability and provides a more natural and comfortable fit.

Stretch Fabric

Used as a glove back hand material. This lightweight, breathable material provides excellent dexterity and mobility.

Foam

Foam padding is used for high impact protection and vibration resistance making it ideal for tool use.
