Tactical shooting gloves are a versatile piece of gear that can really help you with precision and protection when you’re out in the field. We researched some of the top selling items and best known brands and put together this tactical glove buying guide to make sure you find the best pair for your needs. Before we get started, let’s take a look at some of the key features you need to know before you shop.
Cold Weather: While some of these gloves provide some protection in mild winter weather, not many of them are meant for more extreme cold. We did find one really good pair that will keep you warm and protected.
Color: These gloves come in a few different colors but they’re all muted, neutral, and military inspired. You’ll find black, tan, and army green gloves in some styles but there are others that only come in black.
Hard Knuckle: All of these gloves provide some kind of knuckle protection but only a handful of them have hard knuckles. It’s best to decide how much protection you need before you shop. Hard knuckles obviously offer a little more.
Material: Materials vary so much. Honestly, there are so many different ones used. What they have in common, though, is that they’re all durable, comfortable, and allow your hands to get the important protection they need without restricting movement.
Finger: All of these gloves are full finger designs. That said, some of them are available in half-finger styles as well. It’s completely personal preference as to which you prefer. Full finger options offer more protection while half allows more movement.
Machine Washable: Some of these gloves are machine washable, some aren’t. It’s worth noting that some of those that aren’t are treated so they’re anti-bacterial and won’t smell. Also, allow any glove you toss in the washer to air dry.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s take a closer look at our tactical gloves reviews. If you’re in a hurry, make sure you start at the beginning. We put our top and budget picks at the start of our list because comparing them is really the best way to see the kind of variety that’s available. Stick around if you can, all of these products are worth checking out. All right, let’s get to it.
