    1st review

    In my opinion one of the best gloves avialable on the market. Has become very popular with the military so they are sometimes hard to come by. If you tend to end up playing with people on the ground the carbon fiber knuckles will definitely save your skin (literally). Check out the photos for a look at the features.

    These gloves are great!!!!! They come in black and desert tan. For all the military and police guys and gals, go to and register with them. You can get these gloves for $35.00, but they are usually on back order for about a month. Definitely worth the wait.

    In the past, when I would hit a door with the ram, I would usually scrape my knuckles. When dealing with an unruly subject, I would usually scrape my knuckles. Flight gloves and leather patrol gloves didn't offer any protection. Now, thanks to the "tactical gods" and the dudes at Oakley, we have the finest, most functional glove produced thus far. In my opinion the best glove for patrol or SWAT operations!!

    Oakley freakin rules! These gloves fit and look great. It just makes you feel like a bad ass with them on. Great protection, great quality, and great price. Its a must for Special Teams and hardcore patrol.

    Absolutely outsanding, used them for 2 years in the Army, than came home and still use them almost daily. They hold up awesome and really save your knuckles. I mostly retired mine to house work and lemme tell ya, they are probably the best mechanics gloves ever!

    First introduced to these in Iraq. The most confortable gloves ever. Price is even better if you belong to the Oakley Law Enforcement discount program!!!

    I just sold this exact pair of gloves today. While they are nice and extra padded, they are very impractical for patrol use. The oversized carbon fiber knuckles makes it almost impossible to get your hands into a suspects pocket. I believe they would be great for tac officers, warrants, etc, but for daily patrol I did not think they were my best option.
