US Masley Gore-Tex gloves, Foliage green, surplus
Let's cut the bullshit: these are your standard Nomex flyer's gloves, but lined with Gore-Tex. Means these are wind- and wateproof, pretty warm and breathe relatively well. A small one-off lot from the USA! Buy these before our domestic customers will! It's always cold in here and we have nothing like this on the market!
In short these are goddamn durable Nomex & goatskin gloves, with the Gore-Tex membrane squeezed between the outer Nomex and inner lining. Official designation 'Cold Weather Flying Gloves' and the overall status 'legendary'.
Masley gives us these specs:
- Approved for Army Aviation use
- Fire-resistant for flash fire protection
- Gore-Tex® Glove Insert - Waterproof, windproof & breathable for warmth in cold wet conditions
- Superior dexterity for firing accuracy
- Non-melt antimicrobial lining for high heat protection and no bacteria growth
Although fire retardant, these are NOT meant for fire fighting, as the tags say.
Made according to Handlogic sizing, which accounts for palm width and finger length. For example sizes Large and X-Large have the same finger length, but the width is different. You can print a sizing tool here, or just choose your regular glove size and be done with it.
Hand wash only. Hang dry. You might want to consider avoiding washing unless really necessary. However, we suggest care be taken to keep the gloves free from dirt and debris, especially from the inside.
Genuine USGI surplus!
If these are used, the signs of it are minimal - all are in excellent shape, no gripes whatsoever. Made in USA!

That said, I own all three of their largest sizes (75N, 75W, and 80W) from some other purchases I've made in the past and I can say with certainty that despite what their sizing chart claims the 75W has slightly longer fingers than the 75N.
Military equipment is traditionally excellent stuff; it combines durability with very affordable prices. Army surplus finds its way to the civilian market in the following way: the armed forces of one country or other decides to get rid of big batches of perfectly serviceable gear due to cuts in military budgets, said gear becoming obsolete or redundant or some other similar reason. Some of this stuff then finds its way to our storehouse, sometimes directly, sometimes through a third party. Every once in a while we even get random batches of collectibles and rarities from obscure corners of the world.
