Made for pilots but they work great for everybody else including shooters and riders. These densely woven, form fitting, durable, liner thin gloves have proven to be effective in a wide range of temperatures and conditions. They are indispensable and a permanent part of my gear list. By far the best gloves I have ever used.
I have raved numerous times in various places about the Hanz Nomex Gloves but they are so good they deserve their own post.
I started wearing these as an alternative to the standard military issue flight and tanker gloves I wore on duty. Now I wear them shooting when it is hot. I wear them on the quad when it is cool. I carry heavy fleece or down mitten liners and expedition mitten shells on the mountain when it is cold and snowy but these are what I end up wearing most of the time.
They are simply amazing and based on the many comments I have received from you, you agree whole heartedly. They are also National Tactical Officers Association Member approved and recommended.
So, here is my suggestion. Buy a few pair now. They are very popular with the military and Nomex is in short supply so you never know when they may not be available. As far as I know, civilians can only get them at US Cavalry.
