Great gloves. Fit well and look great. Only bummer is the fingertips don't allow for use of the MDT in my patrol vehicle or access to the touchscreen on my cell phone.

Pros - Exceptional fit, dexterity, and comfort. Hold up well when wet and dry quickly.
Cons - After 6 months of light/moderate use around the station, rolling hose, and some extrication work a couple fingertips are developing holes or about to fail. Also some stitching came out and the Velcro doesn't always hold.
This is a great glove for someone looking for heavy duty knuckle protection with a high level of dexterity and sense of touch, but I need a more gross motor skills heavy duty work type glove. Make the palm slightly thicker material or add fingertip reinforcement and this would be a great Station glove.

I have a large inventory of gloves from almost every manufacturer out there. Hands down these gloves are one of, if not the best pair I have owned. They fit perfectly like a second skin. No gaps at the finger tips, and nothing bunching up in the palm at the knuckle bend. In my opinion, the hard knuckle thickness is just right for the way this glove is designed and fit over the individual knuckles perfectly. Attention to detail couldn't be more apparent. Great product. On a side note, your packaging and presentation of product is a model for the rest of the military/law enforcement community. I own gear from everywhere and you do it better than everyone.

The gloves fit exceptionally well, I went with a medium and very satisfied. The short cut by the wrist does improve mobility. When I opened the package the backside of the gloves did appear too padded almost plump. But once you put them up it was padded nicely and feel secure and don't require retightning.
I got these because of the price. Other hard knuckle gloves cost almost twice as much, so I thought I would give these a try.
I wanted hard knuckle gloves for the added protection value in the event of going hand to hand, I would have a slightly less chance of breaking my hand. Another feature that sold me on these gloves, are the low profile look of the hard knuckles.
one thing I think should be brought up are the knuckle material itself. I feel confident in the protection value, however I did expect the material used as the hard knuckle to be more hard. The material is actually somewhat flexible. Also, I expected the glove itself to be thicker for winter use, but it was more light weight. It was not a problem because I just bought some $10 silk inserts to use in conjunction with the glove.
All in all I recommend the glove for daily use based on price, durability, flexibility, and protection value.
So far this has been an excellent glove. The fit is perfect, not too roomy in the fingertips like many other gloves. Great grip. I used the sizing chart from the website and it worked good for me. I would highly recommend these gloves.

Very happy with these gloves. Better quality and fit then both my Oakley and 5.11 gloves, for a better price. Perfect combination between dexterity and protection. I am currently using them daily while searching and conducting pat-downs.
from Brownsville, TX
These gloves exceeded my expectations they're very lightweight they do not even bother during pat downs, almost feels like you don't have any gloves on. They even worked very well under exposure to O.C., I was not affected even though I got direct exposure to my hands. The hard knuckles are very well-placed and conform to each individual knuckle great feature to these gloves. Most of my other hard knuckle gloves I have had the trigger finger cut off, however with these gloves the index finger has such great flexibility that it's not necessary. I have even thrown these gloves in the washer and dryer and their grip and fit as not changed at all. Great gloves over all.

The 1st Tactical hard knuckle glove is a great product. The style and finish on them is very professional- no loose strings or missed stitches. I followed the fit chart for my height and was skeptical, but they are a perfect fit. I'm 6'2 and the large fits like a custom-made glove. Snug yet comfortable. The knuckle armor is just enough to prevent injury and not an overbearing hard insert as is the case with so many other gloves. Tactile level is spot on- no issues with weapon manipulation or small objects. Haven't had a chance to take them out in rain or other weather, but so far they are a definite go. Highest recommendation.
