I am posting this as I ride and am looking for new gloves. I wonder about the value of a motorcycle when things get bad. If it’s an economy thing, then you save a ton of money on gas by riding. If its a zombie, not as much protection, but maybe you can try to look cool fleeing from the flesh eaters. Oh well!
Safariland, A BAE Systems line of business, announced today the introduction of the Hatch Special Unit Bike patrol glove. The Model SUB100 Patrol Glove is engineered with advanced materials to be both durable and comfortable for all-day bike patrol.
The Hatch Special Unit Bike glove features both 3D mesh spacer fabric and Airprene foam on the back of the hands to protect against impact. Further, Airprene allows skin to breathe while moisture is released through the fabric eliminating heat discomfort when wearing protective gloves for a long period of time. To help reduce fatigue and pressure on the hands, closed-cell foam is strategically placed in the specific areas on the palm. This helps relieve the stress that can occur from long hours on the handle bar and grips when on bicycle patrol.
Additional features include silicone pads on all four fingertips to help improve the grip on an officer’s weapon and bicycle controls, and terry cloth fabric on the thumbs for wiping perspiration from the brow. Finally, the SUB Patrol Glove is reinforced with double needle construction and extra stitching in the high stress areas to ensure long-lasting wear.
The Hatch SUB100 is available now in black in sizes S – XXL with an MSRP of $31.00. For more information please visit www.hatch-corp.com. This glove is also featured as part of the new Safariland Bike line and can be viewed onwww.safarilandpatrolbikes.com.
