USAF leather/Nomex gloves! 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 fuctional design.

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.

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.

Condition

Used, but in serviceable condition. Being military issue, they do have some wear to them. Might not be original pairs, but the same size anyway.

Aika huonokuntoiset oli ainakin minulla. Langalla parsittu reijät ja muutaman päivän jälkeen paikkaukset petti. Hinta turhan kova noin kuluneista. Minulla oli tällaiset uutena ostetut ja todella hyvät hanskat. Eli jos saat ehjät niin loistavat hanskat.

I use these as a tanker. They are comfortable but cannot stand up to long term use. Most often the stitching comes out but that can be fixed with a needle and thread.
