Wiley X has brought a new level of scientific experise to the issue of designing high-performance apparel. Their eyewear, garments and accessories are recognized as some of the best in the field. This is partly due to the quality of the materials and workmanship in them, but it also has to do with the enormous amount of research and development this company has put into all its products. Every product offers the greatest possible performance and durability for strenuous activity in the field. Wiley X gloves are a good example.
Many high-performance gloves provide excellent protection at the expense of comfort. The designers at Wiley X don’t think these traits have to exclude each other. Wiley X gloves are lined with Lycra for extra-heavy wicking, and ventilation is provided to prevent dangerous sweat buildup. Their cold weather gloves have Wiley X’s patented Drifire insulation. Kevlar is used extensively to reinforce the gloves
against heat and abrasion damage.
Wiley X gloves will stand up to the stresses of the field. They are resistant to flame, cold, tearing and cutting. Some models have leather reinforcement while others use layers of injection-molded plastic for added strength. Models are also available with reinforcement on fingers or with fingers left bare for unimpeded dexterity. Features such as forearm protection, knuckle reinforcement and strips for added traction are all available on various models. For every tough, outdoor job, there is a Wiley X glove.
The performance and durability of Wiley X gloves have made them popular with military and law enforcement personnel. Many Wiley X products are on the Army Combat Glove Authorized Products List
(ACGAPL). The company will do custom orders to match US military uniforms.
On many Wiley X gloves, additional abrasion protection is provided by a revolutionary new material called Armortan. This is a leather-based synthetic that coats the microscopic fibril bundles of the leather
with a reinforcing material. This ensures that the gloves will stand up to wear longer and have a greatly increased lifespan over ordinary leather gloves.
Because of this exceptional durability, Wiley X gloves are a great investment. When other gloves are worn out and gone, these will still be giving good service. For law enforcement departments on limited
budgets, these gloves are one of the best buys available. They are made for serious work and represent all the best qualities of toughness, durability and long life.
