Getting a Grip: The Top 13 Tactical Gloves

Get a grip and protect your hands with these new duty-ready tactical gloves, because a good pair of tactical gloves can be a street cop’s best friend.

Often undervalued by desk jockeys counting beans at the department HQ, a good pair of gloves can be a street cop’s best friend.

Quality gloves can protect law enforcement patrol and SWAT officers from abrasions, cuts, needle sticks and bites. Gloves are a kind of body armor for the hands.

Like any other tool, there is not a single pair of gloves that is perfect for every occasion. Many cops have a general-use pair, another pair for winter duty and a third for high-risk searches. Officers on a SWAT team will frequently have special needs such as fire resistance. Here is a look at some of the best choices in tactical gloves on the market today.
