Damascus' new HALO gloves feature an advanced woven liner containing a blend of Spectra and other fibers for better cut resistance. While a cut protective performance score of 3.60 to 8.99 foot-pounds is considered "high," HALO's performance is ranked at 9 to 12 foot-pounds. The strap closures and silicone injection on the backs contribute to the highly technical and functional design of the gloves' exterior.
