What gloves do the Special Forces wear?

There is not one specific glove brand that members of the special operations forces wear. However, as mentioned above, certain Mechanix and Oakley models seem to be the preferred crowd favorite. Structurally, combat gloves offer all of the features needed for Special Forces officials - from anatomical reinforcement to fire resistance. They even come in a variety of colors to blend in with the given uniform.

What are combat gloves?

Combat gloves are any type of tactical glove worn for military use or self-defense. They usually feature a knuckle guard designed to absorb impact, extra padding, supported palms, comfortable closure around the wrists for flexibility, double stitching, and reinforced fingertips for improved grip. Conceptually, they are meant to be lightweight, dependable, and fit the form of the hand snuggly so as not to fall off in the field. Combat gloves are designed for top-notch performance with longevity in mind, to anticipate excessive exposure and the wear and tear of harsh environments. Most models make sure to include exhaust ports for ventilation and breathability to keep the hands dry. The idea is to feel secure and protected in them, while still retaining dexterity and the ability to operate stealthily.
