Putting together a small surprise care package for a friend in the service overseas. I've been window shopping around many sites so opinions must be of the products one has actually handled or comes recomended by someone in the field.
One of the items on my list is a good pair of all around Spring through Fall gloves. If price is worth the quality - the former is of no concern. Must be durable, long lasting, tactical rappelling gloves of a medium weight that can also act as good shooting gloves. Full Finger. Plus Options - cut resistant, fire resistant or if it works in conjuntion with liners (that's if the liners are a usable option).
Sounds like you should check out the Hatch F.O.G. gloves. Damascus has a new model coming out called the MX-40 : AXIM...they seem pretty sweet...PM your email and I'll send you the email I received from them.
If any of you guys got some experience good cold weather gloves that still gives you good dexterity. PM me....dont want hijack the thread too bad Might just have to try the Hatch Winter Specialist.
Liked both the Hatch's SOG-100 and FOG offerings - ordered both, with pretense that I might need a pair as well for an outting in the desert Thanks for the info - I've last bought Hatch 4-5 years ago and didn't know that the quality/offerings improved so drastically.
I use the General Utility one's... they also work well in cold weather... not water resistant but that doesn't bother me. I might suggest the Framers... tho once again not water resistant... but probably have their tactical purposes. Ooo Ooo! Maybe even the TAC-OPS which seem like they'd work too... uhm... I'm gonna shut up now.
I've owned a few pairs of USAF pilot gloves made from nomex and some kind of leather. They've served me pretty well and are inexpensive. They won't work well on their own for rapelling though - too thin.
