Light Duty Gloves

When required, they may also be worn for mosquito pretection and may be worn over the chemical protective (CP) gloves to protect the CP gloves from abrasion and cuts. They may be worn alone or, for additional warmth under cold conditions, may be worn with the wool inserts.
The gloves are made of full grain, chrome tanned leather. The leather is treated with a water resistant compound.
