What kind of gloves do you have for B.O.B.?
#1
Just wondering what kind of gloves anyone has for their SHTF kit or whatever. I have a newer set of Mechanix I picked up at Lowes, but I have google ogled all kinds of high speed/low drag pairs. Wiley-X, D3O, etc. Having a good combination of great grip and impact protection is really the most important aspect, but then some throw in chemical or flame resistance, puncture resistance, or hard knuckle inserts.

The D3O stuff has intrigued me for a long time because it is both flexible and breathable, but instantly becomes rigid when impact force is applied. Everything they make seems to be geared at extreme sports. I can't understand the lack of military/police/survival applications for their stuff.

I can say that the crappy leather gloves we were issued in the Marines absolutely sucked. They fit like lunch lady food prep gloves, offered neither grip nor protection from impact or elements, and were actually uncomfortable to wear for any extended period of time... So I do appreciate the advancements.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

I don't know about the Marines, but the leather shells, with wool liner inserts, the Army dishes out are equally as worthless, or so it seems. My ditty bag gloves are bone stock thicker leather work gloves. I hate wearing gloves to shoot with, and so my gloves are geared toward working, and in a pinch, providing some protection from the weather, if absolutely necessary.

Don't forget rubber gloves. Last thing you want when shtf is to get taken down by a bloodborne pathogen. You can even wear them under your work gloves, this is SOP in the fire department on an accident scene.

I plan on keeping at least 50 yards away from any and all blood borne pathogens if the SHTF. If they get any closer than that, it will mean that I have missed.

I have nitrile gloves in my med packs, but everything else went the route of old school military. I have a pair of black buckskin work gloves and a pair of black 100% wool gloves. The wool gloves fit into the buckskin gloves, kinda like the newer 3 in 1 ski gloves.
