More and more of us are carrying and using mobile devices with touchscreens these days and there are often situations where you need to be able to make use of them even whilst wearing gloves. Traditional glove design, especially for more ‘tactical’ models, has meant that the fingertips of the gloves have been thick and durable and it’s not at all unusual to see fingertips cut off to aid in trigger finger sensitivity and use of mobile devices.
The majority of the glove manufacturers have noticed the increased adoption of touchscreen technology and there has been a real race to bring models to market to reflect this trend. One of the vanguards of this has been HWI Gear.
HWI Gear is a family owned business located in Colorado and their design and manufacturing are undertaken in the USA where they’ve been protecting police officers, military personnel, and other emergency professionals for over 25 years with over a million pairs of gloves sold!
The Tac-Tex Tactical Mechanic Glove (MG300) is fit for almost any application. The glove offers a secure, snug fit and they have great flexibility and tactility thanks to a spandex knit back, high-grade synthetic leather palm, and special abrasion resistant PU palm reinforcement. They work extremely well with touchscreen devices thanks to a unique fingertip construction which allows you to swipe through onscreen menus quickly and efficiently.
There is also sonic-welded Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) knuckle and back of the finger protection which is low-profile yet highly effective, making them a real workhorse for both civilian and professional users. They are perfect for use in any shooting or tactical situation and keep the freedom of accessing important information from your touchscreen device with the special capacitive fingertips.
I’ve had a number of pairs of HWI gloves over the years and all of them have been a great fit, their size Large being absolutely perfect for me with no ‘palmbag’ or mis-lengthened fingers, and the Tac-Texs’ are absolutely spot on in this respect. They are extremely comfortable to wear for extended periods thanks to the breathability of the spandex back.
Once again HWI Gear seem to have the exact product when it’s needed, and at £35.00 a pair these are in no way going to break the bank. As with all HWI Gear gloves the Tac-Texs’ are tough and durable and are a worthy addition to any range bag. They are available in either Black or Coyote Brown, sized Small to XL.
