Wiley X, a leader in the development of the highest intensity personal protective gear for military and law enforcement professionals for more than two decades, has announced the newest additions to the company's line of advanced, high-tech protective hand wear: Orion and Aries.
Both the new Wiley X Orion glove and Wiley X Aries glove are constructed using a distinctive blend of materials for ultra-protective, highly durable, precision-touch gloves for tactical and combat operations.
These versatile gloves offer heavy-duty protection, with a lightweight Nomex/Kevlar weave throughout the fingers and the back of the hand providing extra flame resistance and protection from cuts, while sheepskin allows for increased dexterity, durability, and protection. Leather-reinforced in high-wear areas, these reliable gloves will keep warfighters protected in a variety of tactical applications and will outlast "flyer's gloves" four to six times.
The gloves are identical, except that for even greater tactile ease and dexterity in the cockpit, the new Wiley X Aries Glove has the thumb, index finder, and middle finger tips removed to expose the fingers. With an adjustable cuff for a comfortable custom fit, both gloves are available in sizes including small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large, ensuring proper fit across a wide range of hand sizes.
Additionally, these gloves are custom-designed to match U.S. military uniforms and are available in coyote brown (model G301) or foliage green (Model G302). The systems include a sturdy clip strap for ease of storage and transportation and are readily available through the General Services Administration (GSA).
A U.S. veteran-owned company, Wiley X is dedicated to developing products for members of the Armed Forces that exceed the highest of military standards. The Wiley X Orion and Aries Gloves are both Flame Resistant Combat Glove Authorized Product List (FRCGAPL) and U.S. Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) approved, and comply with the following standards and regulations: ASTM D 6413 Flame Resistance, ASTM F 1790 Fabric Cut Resistance, and NFPA 1971-07 Thermal and Heat Resistance.
