New Shelby Gloves

When Shelby comes out with new glove designs, we tell you about them. Why? Because Shelby Gloves never disappoint! The New 3oz Shelby Pigskin Wildland/Rescue Gloves are the fresh-to-the-scene gloves we're telling you about today!
These gloves are available in two different wrist options: gauntlet or with a wristlet, depending on the style jacket you wear and what would fit most comfortably. Of course they Meet NFPA standards and so you can be sure they'll protect you on the scene with the unknowns thrown your way.

The outer shell is made from a heavy 3 to 3.25 oz brushed Pigskin and they're in a popcorn and black color, made to be abrasion resistant. Just because you work hard with those hands, doesn't mean you need a scuffed up pair of gloves! The 4" Nomex wristlet provides great protection, and the tanned hide does not contain PCP, it's salts or esters. 

The gloves are constructed to perfection. They have a Lock-Stitch sewn Kevlar thread, which is 8-10 stitches per inch, providing strength, yet durability! The spun-Kevlar thread is safe yet strong, and the 1/8" wide double row stitching around inset thumb provides strength where strength is needed.
