A lot can go wrong in the cockpit, but even in a worst-case scenario pilots still need to be prepared to operate the console or activate the ejection seat. Thankfully these gloves are built for just that, featuring textured palms for improved grip and dexterity, and a hook and loop strap on each wrist for a tight, secure fit.
Run of the mill synthetic 'tactical' gloves are great until you experience your first contact burn on a hot barrel or suppressor. Its for this reason that Nomex flight gloves have a cult following among experienced shooters. Surplus flight gloves offer a high a degree of dexterity and heat/flame protection at a very low price point. Among surplus options, the German Luftwaffe have some of the best on the market making them a steady favorite across the board.
There's another water-resistant layer underneath the Nomex, making these gloves a good choice for weathering the elements. Pair with our USGI Glove Liners underneath for added insulation if you are planning any mountain trips, preparing for winter use, or regularly operate in a cold climate.
To determine your glove size, measure around your hand with a tape measure across your palm. The sizing listed is in inches, for example the "8.5 (Medium)" size would be for a user with a hand size of approximately 8.5 inches.
