Improvement

Several subtle changes to the glove's original mid-1980s design have been borrowed from the commercial glove industry.

  • The color is foliage green instead of black to coordinate with the colors in the ACU.
  • The palm and fingers are covered in goat skin, rather than cow hide, for better durability.
  • The fingers are slightly curved, making the glove more ergonomically correct.
  • The back of the hand features a four-way stretch nylon instead of leather for dexterity.
  • Fleece wrist cuffs.
  • A soft nose-wipe feature on the back of the thumbs.
  • Reduced-bulk insulation on the trigger finger so its users can have more dexterity when firing weapons.
