The first of their kind, these MacWet shooting gloves are made from a uniquely responsive fabric which automatically adjusts to the climate to maintain unrivalled grip with maximum comfort, sensitivity and feel at all times.
The unique, breathable Aquatec fabric used on the palms and fingers of the gloves minimises the effects of humidity, perspiration and precipitation by actively drawing moisture away from the hand to the outside of the glove, where it is used to increase grip. Whether conditions are dry, wet or humid, the gloves remain soft to the touch and with a natural drying time of just 5-10 minutes, comfort and feel are never compromised.
For a superior ‘second skin’ fit, the gloves are available in 14 different sizes and 2 cuff lengths, all with adjustable cuff straps to ensure you remain comfortable whilst out shooting. The lightweight Aquatec fabric and skin-tight fit provides excellent trigger feel and sensitivity for complete control, so unlike traditional shooting gloves, there’s no need to expose your trigger finger for shooting. Popular with police shooting teams, the gloves ensure maximum grip and protection for your non-trigger hand from the heat of the barrel; you can even reload swiftly and safely without removing the gloves.
Great for Clay or Game
In wet or humid weather, the unique attributes of the MacWet gloves really come into their own. So with 100% grip even when wet, it is easy to see why the gloves are becoming essential shooting equipment for professionals as well as amateurs.
Top ladies clay shooter Becky Bream agrees they really do offer the ‘all grip, no slip’ qualities as promised: “I have worn MacWet gloves for three years now, they give a great grip, have a nice snug fit and are very comfortable. You really don’t notice them at all!”
Graham Evans from the Wales and GB Clay Shooting Team agrees: “In 35 years of shooting in top class events I never wore gloves; now I can’t shoot without them, they are brilliant!”
Extremely durable and machine washable up to 40°c, the gloves, starting at £27.99 a pair are available in two seasonal options to suit different weather conditions. The mesh glove, developed specifically for warmer weather is available in 6 different colours and is designed to aid circulation around the hand, with light, cool and breathable mesh fabric on the back of the glove. While for cooler weather, the new Climatec glove, available in 4 different colours is windproof, water resistant and features a fleece lined Gortex fabric on the back of the glove for extra comfort and warmth.
