Oakley was already producing high tech, state-of-the-art tactical gloves for the US military when it was approached by the Department of Defense to upgrade its original design by adding a full-grain leather palm and micro ventilation. The result is the TAA-compliant Oakley Factory Pilot tactical glove that combines maximum all-weather protection, comfort and breathability without compromising performance and safety. This aggressively-designed Oakley Factory Pilot glove has four-way stretch panels that deliver a more precise fit while mid-height cuffs allow for a full range of motion. Airprene also keeps moisture at bay while carbon fiber knuckle plates protect hands at all times. For military operators who need maximum protection and minimal interference from the gloves they wear on exercise or while deployed, especially in warm weather climates, these Oakley Factory Pilot gloves are great for soldiers who expect the best.
