Default My new Gloves!

Just got in my newest pair Combat Gloves.

Mechanix IMPACT in multicam
(while I prefer the Wiley Xs and also have a pair of those, these Mechanix are less than half the price)

Even tho these are "tactical" gloves, IMO from a prepper standpoint they are also good safety gloves when moving in a broken city, but you still need more dexterity than old school work gloves can provide.

Remember human skin is a nearly 100% barrier against infection but it is not evolved for an environment full of broken rebar, concrete and glass....
I am going to use them when I go to Max Velocity training in 10 days

YW:

BTW I feel their size falls out ever so slightly on the large side and such gloves should be worn tight for best dexterity

So I order the L size not XL.... the L are fitting me perfect and I am 6'0 225lbs
