The densest source of nerve endings in our hands gives us the most tactile feedback. These PIG tactical gloves takes advantage of that.
“If you’re looking for a brand that not only produces superior tactical gear, but espouses your unapologetically American values, then get ready to fall in love with our tactical nylon marvels. Quality. Design. Relentless Irreverence. A strong lust for fatty pork products. The hallmarks of Patrol Incident Gear.”
Our hands take up less than 2 percent of our body mass yet they’re constructed with more than 25 percent of the bones in our skeletal system. Mechanically, human hands are a marvel that are just as important as our eyes in sensing the world and getting things done.
Gloves desensitizes touch and restricts dexterity, handicapping our ability to do easy but articulate movements such as typing on a touch screen device or removing a specific coin from a pocket full of change.
- SPECIAL OPERATIONS PROVEN- PIG FDT Alpha Gloves have been proven in combat by US Special Operations soldiers who require MAXIMUM dexterity for fast & accurate shooting with Rifle AND Handgun! The PIG FDT Alpha (original), Bravo (FR) and Delta (minimalist) Gloves have ALL been fielded by Special Operations Soldiers & Units. We even offer women’s specific versions (Charlie & Echo models).
- BAREHAND SHOOTING FEEL- Single Layer Multi-Piece Palm - Designed specifically so that only one layer of material contacts your shooting grip. The thinnest available material goes specifically on the trigger finger for ultimate sensitivity. Knuckle padding is thin enough to reach into your pockets- try doing that with your hard knuckle gloves- #nope
- OPERATE YOUR TOUCH SCREEN- TOUCH SCREEN Conductive Thumb and Trigger Finger material - Maximum reliability for TOUCH SCREEN use without losing tactile dexterity.
- COMFORTABLE & DRY HANDS- Roll-over fingertip design means no more jammed seams under your fingernails! The venting material on the inner fourschettes are ventilated for maximum wicking. Outer forschettes are synthetic suede for durability.
- TIE YOUR SHOELACES- Not trying to be facetious… This is a great test for dexterity. Most “tactical gloves” or “shooting gloves” don’t come close to the dexterity needed to shoot your Handguns fast and accurately, much less accomplish a complicated task like tying your shoelaces. PIG FDT Gloves provide you with the dexterity to do just that!
For some applications such as weather, fire retardancy and waterproofing, their hindrance is expected even if only because they have to be thick and bulky.
But with tactical use, agility and sensitivity while being rugged is necessary. That’s not an easy combination to achieve but PIG Tactical Gloves($) nearly perfected it.
Regardless, it’s the best and most advanced glove of its kind making it equally effective for moderately hard use activities and everyday wear for chilly weather.
“Patrol Incident Gear Full Dexterity Tactical (FDT) Alpha Touch Gloves” is the official full name of this product.
It’s quite a mouthful but it’s aptly named.
For many years I’ve been using cycling gloves for vagabonding and tactical purposes because I’ve always favored their form fit, superb dexterity and minimalism over any other tactical-specific gloves available.
That is until I was gifted these PIG Tactical Gloves($).
“Over 2 years in the making, the PIG FDT-Alpha Glove (Patented) offers ground breaking dexterity while providing much needed protection from the rigors of tactical work.”
The thing about tactical gloves is that most don’t fit “like a glove” but more like a loose fitting coat. These seemingly graft to every part of my hands to form a hide. No gap spacing, bunching or restricting.
Like a relaxed fit of latex gloves.
Obviously not great for medical surgery but surgical strikes with a firearm as it was intended for, yes.
This means a glove that can be used for comfort in bad weather, use on any touch device, do delicate repairs, drive a vehicle with craft or just go to battle with.
