great looks. horrible performance
i recieved these gloves and kept them in the package till i was in country for my deployment. looks and feels great when worn. however in about 2 weeks time, the palm surface were completely worn out. the vent holes on the finger tips and palm simply tore open. on the second week, theres was basically small patches of the leather covering my palms and my finger tips were completely exposed. in about 3 weeks i threw them in the trash because all they did was wrap around my wrist and cover the top of my hand.

field durable but not recommended for searches.
i work in law enforcement as well as the in the military. gloves are breathable with nice padding on the knuckles. velcro straps allow for easy doning and keeps gloves on tight when worn. durable for field use like shooting and scouting. as for law enforcement stand point: all of the above is a plus however there's not enough protection on the palm side for searches. the gloves have a slight more bulk than other gloves which makes it difficult to write and flip thru pages in a ticket book. overall a slight higher than average work glove. recommended for the field not a shift.

These are great lightweight gloves. I can write with them, pick up handcuff keys, frisk people and find all kind of good stuff on them!!!

THESE GLOVE ARE NOT DURABLE AT ALL! I WORE THESE GLOVES FOR THREE DAYS AND JUST WEARING THESE FOR SHOW AND THE STITCHING SEPARATED ON BOTH SIDES OF THESE GLOVES AND THE VELCRO TABS CAME OFF BOTH OF THEM! JUST IMAGINE IF I USED FOR ACTUAL WORK? I REALLY GOT BURNED ON THIS PRODUCT!

Would not recommend.
I think these gloves are HORRIBLE!!! The palms are not padded as depicted. They came in the wrong color, the palm was suppose to be sage but instead they were black. The gloves turned my hands purple every time I used them, washing did not help. The palms were to slick to grip my firearm. If anything were wet or moist it would slip right through the gloves. The gloves were not breathable and caused my hands to sweat. The reinforced knuckles make the gloves very stiff and uncomfortable. You have no cordination when you wear these gloves. Shooting is difficult because of the way the gloves are made. Craftmanship is poor, stiching comes out easily. The gloves might look good but are not efficient.

These gloves look great, but that is about it. I can not handle my weapon well with them, the leather palms are too slick. They also have limited dexterity. I would say for tweny dollars you get what you pay for.

I purchased these gloves to wear on duty. First I found that I was unable to grip/write very well with these gloves on and ended up taking them off quite often. Second after only about three weeks of use I noticed that there were slight holes developing on each palm at the base were the fingers attach to the palm. I found that Nike Keystone batting gloves(black) are the best tact. glove for the money. They wear like a second skin and you can leave them on for for whole shift...Blackhawk/Hellstorm eat your heart out.

They are not supposed to have reinforced palms. They have reiforced knuckles.

Gloves look nice but when I first received them I noticed they did not have re-enforced palms as the picture or description had suggested. Secondly prior to use and over a few days of wear the stitching in several places came unravelled. Not very pleased with the construction of these gloves.
