BlackHawk S.O.L.A.G. Tactical Gloves - Coyote Tan
Picked up a pair of these Gloves for my "Bush Bashing" trips into the Victorian High Country.
Now, it must be stated from the outset that these are definitely not "Work Gloves".
They were never designed for heavy duty manual labour duties like farming or logging.
These Gloves are tight fitting "Tactical Gloves" suited for more general protection of Hands plus allowing a fair degree of dexterity and sensitivity.
While on the subject of tight fitting - they are exactly that. Some caution is required here, as even though I ordered up the XXL size, the Gloves are very snug indeed.
I expect through regular use, they will loosen up somewhat.
I suggest trying on pair before purchase. Another caution would be not to get these Gloves wet. They are not designed for extreme weather conditions, only general (but quite adequate) protection against flash burns, abrasion and cuts. If you are looking for a suitable pair of "Bush ready" Gloves to wear while Hiking, Hunting or Fishing
I recently purchased these gloves for outdoor survival/hiking use, and they really deliver. The leather palm provides grip and durability, the fingers have great feeling through them, and the hardened/raised leather knuckle provides protection without feeling too bulky. They also have great flexibility for full ROM. So far these gloves are up to the task of handling the Aussie bush. I’d recommend these to anybody wanting them for similar activities.
buy a size larger than what you think you need
Like all blackhawk gloves buy them a size larger than you usually do.
Aside from that the fittings on the hand tabs for this were pretty chintzy and the leather mouldings were base mounted with soft foam, so their built to look a certain way not for specific use and wear
