I recently discovered that my old plain black lightweight gloves were well overdue for retirement, so I quickly scurried online to look for a replacement! The model that immediately grabbed my attention was First Tactical’s Lightweight Patrol Glove and they combine extreme tactility with long-term durability and you’ll never have to worry about a slip of the grip or cumbersome fit with these awesome little gloves. Whatever the task at hand (if you’ll pardon the pun!), this glove will perform with excellence.
The Lightweight Patrol Gloves benefit from First Tactical’s precision fit. Lightweight snagproof stretch woven materials allow for a precise fit and smart look. The TOUCHTAC finger construction offers revolutionary fingertip engineering that gives you a better fit for even greater efficiency and performance, with a seamless wrap-around index finger design that is touchscreen friendly and more sensitive than ever before.
First Tactical has done a fabulous job with these gloves; although I initially found the closure a little bulky for such ‘low key’ gloves, I did find the cutaway for my wristwatch a great idea; I usually wear quite a sizeable dive or compass-watch and the gloves accommodated this with ease and caused no irritation by pushing back the watch strap. After many uses now there is virtually no sign of wear; the use of goat skin mixed with the stretch woven fabric is a winner, as I can just toss them in the wash with my other gear and they come out looking like new.
The gloves are currently only available in plain black; I’m a pretty standard large in most gloves, and the First Tactical sizing for me is absolutely spot-on. After using the gloves on a regular basis, and after several washes, the finger length is still perfect, and there’s no ‘bagginess’ in the palm or thumb/forefinger area. These are super gloves and come with my thorough recommendation!
