I bought a pair of these 5.11s at our local Gander Mtn. Store. Overall I'm pleased with these gloves for what I bought them for. I got these for range use mainly. I have issues with my hands and wrists and decided to try shooting gloves for extra support. These gloves helped me go through an afternoon of over 400 rds of 9mm and .45 acp. I wore them for every shot, even shooting a brand new gun proved to be no problem. Handling my pistols and mag loader were as easy as bare handed. I was worried that having a covered trigger finger would be an issue but it was not at all. The triggers and all controls felt fine to me.
Even though I got the 2x these are just a little short in fingers and thumb web. I'm hard to fit I know....and they do fit pretty good. They do make nice driving gloves...I drove all the way home from the range with them on....it never occurred to me to take them off. Since I'll use them mostly on the range I hope to get a long life from them. I think I'll pick up another pair anyway....just in case.
Bought these gloves as a standard patrol glove. After 6 months of use and plenty of consent searches, they have held up great. Even after being frozen in a block of ice (station prank) they have held up very well. Would suggest a kevlar glove if you think your going to run into any needles.
Best gloves i owned, perfect fit and feeling, i can even count stiches on persons pants when i frisk him but so bad stiches, torn apart after 3 months of regular use, had to take it twice to the local sewer so he can put them together again. in my country not possible to buy, and shipping to big to get new ones.
I'm soon running on my third pair of gloves. They wear out far too quick. I take really good care of the gloves, but the stitching is way worse than the typical 5.11 quality. The glove as a concept is really great, but gloves that come apart in less than half a year should cost that much.
I'm really looking forward to an updated version!
Snug fit! Leather is soft and the gloves appear to have been put together well. I am happy with the purchase. The tags inside the gloves are not easily removed, but could cut the. Out. Not sure the large tags were needed, to include the ID tags. All in all, exlose to what I had hoped for and expected.
This is an excellent pair of gloves. I am an EMT and was looking for something to wear during the winter on night shifts. This fits the bill. The single-piece palm and fingertip construction means that I can feel a pulse and assess a patient with the gloves on. The tight fit makes it easy to wear under a pair of latex gloves for BSI. My only con is that they are not as warm as I would like, but they are very warm considering how thin they are. They do help cut down on the wind which helps.
I BUY ALL 5.11 PRODUCTS FOR WORK. I tried this glove on at the uniform store and it felt great. I had it for about a month and the stitching fell apart. If they can make this glove durable and improve the stitching i would buy it. But until then buy another glove.
First time started to rip, not even on my hands for 2 minutes
1 month of use, and in between to fingers started to tear.. 5.11 agreed to replace them.
I bought my TacLIte2 gloves and they lasted about 3 months and tore in the palm area. I contact 5.11 and they provided me with paid FEDEX return envelope and I just received my new pair of gloves. They feel thicker in the palm and I was thinking, in my case, maybe they got a bad lot from a supplier. I've seen similiar failures with other guys. Any, good customer service and support of their product.
