Wiley X® TAG-1 tactical gloves
The highest quality tactical gloves are used by many military and police units all over the world. They are made of a mixture of Kevlar and Nomex (20/80) what guaranties high fire, temperature resistance and attempts of cutting. In the situation of contact with fire, the gloves’ fabric is fireproof, it burns without fire, this means that it smoulders, it does not melt or stick to the skin.
