    Fingerless??

    I thought they were called half finger gloves?

    I have a blackhawk assault 1/2 finger, not bad... durable, comfortable, not hot as on top is sort of open...

    Pilots seem to cope okay - and there's not much more delictae than a jet fighter. What most people don't do is get gloves that actually fit

    Most military equipment is designed to be used when wearing gloves anyway, or how else is an army supposed to fight in winter or in a CBRN environment?

    With the possible exception of the swiss army knife.

    Default nomex Gloves

    I recently went field with some new nomex gloves. i must admit, they are a fantastic piece of kit, however now they're really dirty.

    Does anyone know how to wash them, im worries about the leather.

    Soap and water. Nothing special. You can even throw them in the washing machine and dryer and the leather will come out the same.
    Be aware, though, that they don't last very long under regular daily military use (sandbags, weapons, vehicles, climbing in & out of trucks, etc), maybe 3-4 months.

    My nomex gloves would barely last me a month in Iraq.

    I had 2 set in Iraq, but I would put my leather shells over the them, I guess that why they lasted.

    Wash in soap and water then air dry. It's lightweight and you get great finger dexterity. I myself sometimes prefer them to the chunky Oakley SI gloves or Wiley-X CAG gloves for shooting.

    Oakleys come clean easy, but they're neither fire resistant or kevlar. We got issued two sets of Hatch Shorty Operator's Gloves, and they're the best gloves I've ever had. I already burned through one pair by getting battery fluid on the fingers, but that was my dumb ass.
