Providing Protection To Those Who Protect Us - Since 1950

Shelby 5285 Kevlar / Cowhide Gauntlet Glove (SHE-5285) - $117.99

Shelby took all the elements in a glove that affect performance and dexterity, and re-engineered them. Durable wash & wear Koala� tanned leather was chosen for the palm for soft, flexible abrasion resistance. The highly engineered Insular textile construction for the back of the hand, provides thermal and flame resistance with increased pliability for added range of hand and finger motion. The total combination results in a glove with the ultimate in protection and dexterity.

This is the only knit back NFPA 1971, 2013 Edition certified glove on the market with 3 layers of Kevlar� protection! Once again, Shelby is "Leading the field" in firefighter hand protection and it��s made in the USA!
