Wiley X Hybrid Glove: Protective Gear

Motorcycle Gear News

Sometimes riders who want the most protection while on their motorcycles look outside the industry for other gear, especially when protecting the hands. And when it comes to gloves, Wiley X is one of those companies that is searched out.

For decades, Wiley X has been "hands-on" in providing equipment to keep our armed forces effectively geared up. Now the industry leader has introduced its newest solution in protective gloves with an innovative combination of key tactical features: the Wiley X Hybrid Glove.

The Wiley X Hybrid Glove is ultra-tough, with an 80/20 Nomex/Kevlar weave, and an ingenious injected molded knuckle protector that can be slipped in and out in seconds, to protect the hands when punching through glass or metal.

Wiley X is veteran owned and operated, and has a reputation for excellence in its wide range of tactical gloves that provide the ultimate in battlefield-proven versatility and safety. The new Wiley X Hybrid Glove is no exception-as it has already received ACGAPL-approval and been deemed Team Soldier Certified Gear by the US Army, delivering the level of dexterity and protection that a wide range of tactical applications demand.

It’s reinforced with rugged goatskin leather in the high wear areas on the palm and underside of the fingers. The Nomex/Kevlas weave is incorporated throughout the fingers and the back of the hand, so it’s flexible and still stands up to punishing use. Plus, it’s flame, thermal and cut-resistant, so it can perform safely in the harshest environments.

The Wiley X Hybrid Glove comes in Foliage Green and Coyote Brown, to match a wide range of landscapes. It’s specially made with an adjustable cuff so it fits perfectly over both bulky and low profile sleeves, to keep debris and moisture out.
