Gloves for shooters have always been sold as a durable good, leaving you dissapointed when they fail after a hard day's use. In reality, gloves are a wear-use item, like shoes. In that sense you should have a lightweight glove that affords high levels of dexterity while also providing protection for your hands -- whether shooting or performing manual tasks. This is where the SKD PIG Gloves come in! If you’ve ever worn tactical gloves while shooting and wished for something better… your wish is now reality.
These high dexterity gloves feature construction entirely from flame resistant materials. The biggest material departure from the Alpha gloves is that the entire palm is made of actual Goat skin leather. While it will have a different feel from the synthetic suede on the Alpha glove, the leather palms and fingers will break in very nicely over time and provide better durability over the synthetic suede.
We worked closely with a special tannery that offers Touchscreen Compatible leather for the trigger finger and thumb. One thing you’ll need to be aware of is that due to the high carbon and graphite content in the conductive leather, there will be some black color transfer onto your trigger finger and thumb. After wearing several times and allowing the glove to break in, we recommended that you hand wash the gloves and air-dry them to help with the breaking-in process and reduce most of the excess carbon and graphite.
