Dutch aviator gloves, leather/Nomex, black, surplus

Price 18.99 USD excluding VAT

Thin, dextrous gloves that still offer basic protection for your precious hands. A classic pair of aviator fashion that quickly found its way to decorate the hairy hands of the ground troops as well. An old but still very functional design. The black colour is something special, maybe so special that these haven't even been used!

Thin, dextrous gloves that still offer basic protection for your precious hands. A classic pair of aviator fashion that quickly found its way to decorate the hairy hands of the ground troops as well. An old but still very functional design. The black colour is something special, maybe so special that these haven't even been used!

During the Vietnam war they came up with a pair of silly good aviator gloves with the grippier side made of leather and everything else of fire retardant Nomex. This meant the gloves did not melt on the pilot's hands if the plane caught fire. Needless to say, a pair of light, dextrous gloves weren't good only in the cockpit, so they were a coveted piece of gear among others as well. These are the Dutch cousin of the classic American model and are nearly identical in every aspect.

On the palm side these are made of leather from the wrist to the tip of each finger. The leather on the palm gives superb grip and dexterity. Back of the glove is made of fire resistant Nomex. Gloves are kept firmly in place by elastic straps on the wrists. Long cuffs offer protection from small cuts and scrapes.

Perfect stuff when good handling is needed. Working with small bits and pieces pose no problem (e.g. vehicle parts, guns and such). However for demanding and continuously abrasive work use these are not meant for - everything is a compromise, these offer great dexterity and grip, but not the same kind of toughness that thickest work gloves give.

Size info

Sizes according to user's palm circumference in inches, as is usual with gloves. Measure yours like shown here. Easy size in the brackets.

Unused army surplus

Totally unissued, some even still in factory plastics. This kind of stuff usually isn't available for too long.

Mulle on tullut vastaan jos jonkinmoista lentäjän- ja taistelijanhanskaa ja niitä on tullut käytettyä paljon. Nämä yllättivät todella riemukkaasti. Nämä ovat huomattavasti ohuemmat kuin klassikko BW versio ja kämmenosan nahka on satumaisen pehmeää ja juuri hyvällä tavalla nihkeää. Nihkeys ja pito on hyvä juttu ase- ja veitsihommissa. Veeery nice. Fiilistelin uusia käpälänsuojia himassa ja kävi niin, että rakas vaimoni takavarikoi hanskat itselleen ratsastushanskoiksi ja kommentti oli, että todella hyvät.

I just received my gloves and these are a tremendous value at this price. Brand new, top quality. I usually wear a size 9 in gloves and that's what I ordered and they fit perfectly. Happy I ordered 2 pair!

Excellent gloves, very good if you need to maintain dexterity while keeping your hands reasonably warm. The ones I received were in near-perfect condition. Very good shooting gloves.

Paketista paljastui mintti käsinepari valmistajan muoveissa. Istuvuus 6/5 eli napakka lekan ohjeella mitattuna. Materiaali vähän turhan hienoa metsään, ei välttämättä kestä kovin pitkään yleishanskana. Hienosäätöön kuten kiehisten vuolemiseen omiaan. Laatu on aivan super, tähän hintaan tuntui melkein näpistykseltä.
