Wiley X CAG-1 & Wiley X Aries Gloves Win Hands Down
14USC89.com Shooting Glove Competition for Tactical Maritime Use Put Top brands To the Test.
Livermore, CA –(Ammoland.com)- In a recent shooting glove competition by maritime law enforcement organization 14USC89.com, Wiley X had two of its top tactical gloves take the upper hand in a punishing series of tests during a week-long advanced weapons course and CQB instructor course at U.S. Training Center.
Both the Wiley X Combat Assault Glove (CAG-1) and the Wiley X Aries Glove were pitted against stiff competition from glove brands like Oakley, Under Armor and Mechanix, yet received the highest marks of all.
This was a grueling user field test for maritime operation applications, and each set of gloves received equal range time and testing with 5000 rounds each of pistol, rifle and shotgun. The gloves were also assessed for the primary performance attributes of user ease and comfort, with particular focus on the ability to provide solid grip and comfortable feel, along with the ability to change magazines, draw handcuffs, or other tools without losing the sense of feel.
The Army Combat Glove Authorized Products List (ACGAPL) approved Wiley X CAG-1, made of treated goatskin leather and with an injection molded knuckle protector, has a 100% Kevlar weave from fingers to wrist and is flame and abrasion resistant.
“This glove blew everyone away. The question is, what does it NOT have,” quipped the reviewer at 14USC89.com.
“These gloves held up extraordinarily during shooting and even allowed for ease of use during reloading. It fits perfectly and even molds itself to the shape of your hand. The wrist strap allows for the perfect fit.”
Wiley X’s Aries glove was no slouch, either — NAVAIR approved, it has a lightweight Nomex/Kevlar weave on the fingers and the back of the hand for flame resistance and to prevent cuts.
“The (Aries) Wiley X gloves offer a outstanding fit and a Velcro® cuff for perfect adjustment and fit,” reported 14USC89.com.
“They also have leather protection across the knuckles. Tips of the thumb, middle, and shooting finger are precut for exposure and 100% sense of touch to the wearer.”
