The hands are a key asset for today’s modern soldier engaged in dangerous tactical situations. Fortunately, Wiley X,® Inc. has protection well in hand with the introduction of its new-for-2012 APX Gloves. These technical gloves provide battle-worthy protection while maintaining the comfort, feel and dexterity soldiers need to perform in challenging environments.
The new Wiley X APX Glove is designed for the heavy-duty workload of a maintainer. It provides the wearer with serious hand protection, thanks to features like synthetic leather knuckle protectors and palms for maximum durability with excellent breathability. Reinforced thumbs and palm patches provide even greater protection and durability in these high-wear areas.
The breathability of these advanced gloves is further enhanced by the use of moisture wicking, heavy-duty Lycra gussets. Combined with unique ventilated fingers for increased airflow, this design keeps hands from overheating, even when under fire.
Wiley X also adds a silicon print strategically placed on each thumb and index finger, providing increased grip — and confidence — when the action gets hot and heavy. An integrated heavy-duty clip strap provides for easy storage and portability in the field.
Like many military-approved Wiley X gloves and protective eyewear systems, the new APX Glove is available through GSA. In addition to hand protection, Wiley X is a leading provider of performance protective eyewear systems designed to meet the most stringent military specifications.
