    Duty/search gloves

    I lost my gloves the other night and I need to buy new ones. The ones I had were Hatch Patrolman. They were ok, but I'm looking for recomendations. What is your favorite duty glove?

    I haven't really found a pair that I like a lot... I used to have some leather ones that fit well, and didn't interfere too much when I had to search wearing them, but they don't seem to make them anymore.

    What I've personally found is that the fit matters more for searching and other things than anything else. I won't buy gloves for work from a catalog or on-line; I have to be able to put them on and see how they feel on my hands with my fingers (relatively big palms/knuckles, shorter, stubbier fingers). Beyond that -- decide what you want your gloves to do. Keep your hands warm while still letting you handle your pistol and do reasonable pat downs, or do you want to be able to write tickets, do thorough searches and pick up pennies with them on? I don't think you'll find one glove that does it all...

    I wear the Hatch Friskmaster FM2000. They are thick enough that they are puncture resistant yet thin enough that you can still write citation and use your gun with them. They are also warm for the most part.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    those are the same gloves that I wear. Good decent gloves that aren't to pricey yet provide good puncture protection.

    Turtleskin Duty gloves... They are expensive, but they are supposed to provide some needle protection (in addition to the slash protection of most gloves), and they've saved me a needle stick at least once. They are a bit stiffer than the Hatch gloves, and there is an even thicker version of the glove available called the "search" glove (that provides coverage on the back of the hand).

    I didn't li the beefier "Search" version... couldn't feel my gun well with it on. Again, even the "Duty" glove is kind of stiff, but I've shot my quarterly qualifications with them once, just to make sure I could operate the gun while wearing them... and they work fine.

    Also, if you decide to check these out, shop around. The website for the company lists them for about twice as much as I paid:

    Anybody tried the 5.11 gloves?

    I'm looking for some new gloves too, and the 5.11s don't have a seam at the fingertip. That made me interested, but I don't know of anyone who owns a pair that I can test drive.

    I'll probably go with the Hatch Resistor or FS2000 if I can't find anything out about the 5.11 gloves.

    I actually use http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS...gloves&x=0&y=0, not in that color though. They actually last me a long time (4 months). I would go through a pair of uncle mikes about once a month.

    I think they mean on duty, Paco, not in your second job as a ditch digger. Or your third job as a fajita cook - so don't be posting your oven mitts.

    Franklin(of batting glove fame)is now making a line of duty gloves. They seem comfortable, but I didn't need new gloves at the time.

    They fit good(at least for me), and seem to allow good dexterity. Didn't try the "Isotoner" test with a dime, but they seemed ok.
    "Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
    He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
    The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
    He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
    The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
    He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
    He knows only the Cause.
    Now, who wants to quit?"

    "I am only one, but I am one. I can not do everything, but I can do something. And because I can not do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do I should do. And what I should do, by the Grace of God, I will do."

    I have a pair. I like them but the velcro strap seems to always catch the back of my thumb near the wrist when I put them on or take them off, after a while it gets irritating. Other than that, I love em.

    I just use a pair of baseball batting gloves because they are inexpensive. The needle protective gloves are a great idea, but I find that they are too thick for comfort. However, in my particular area, we rarely see needles as well.

    Tell me more! I love the 5.11 line so far. Can you post a link to the ones you have?

    I have two pair. A pair of Damascus that are spectra lined, leather/neoprene and a pair of Hatch SG20P Dura-thin unlined leather gloves. Both give decent dexterity and touch. The leather on the thumb and index finger are peeling on the Damascus though, probably because I wear them most. Both cost in the twenties and have been quite useful.
