Tactical Gloves Performance Endurance Test: Intro

Big thanks to TomThumb for the excellent idea…wish I would’ve thought of it sooner.  While the majority of the endurance testing will take place with tire flips, I’ll also wear the gloves performing other exercises where grip plays a major role: pull-ups/chin-ups and deadlift variations.

5.11 Tac A2 vs. Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G.

When selecting gloves for the performance endurance testing, my criteria was to select two pairs of the most popular, moderately priced gloves on the market.

Prices as ordered through Optics Planet:

  • 5.11 Tac2 – $24.99
  • Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. – $28.99

The wearing of gloves will be a new experience, whether for shooting or physical training, as I don’t wear gloves performing either.  Rumor has it, women dig calluses.  It’ll be interesting to see if the gloves affect my performance at all when lifting heavy objects off the ground.

Any bets as to when the gloves will fail…if at all?  Keep in mind, when my professional athletes perform tire flips, they make certain to wear old shorts, to keep from ruining their fancy Under Armour gear.  Additionally, they all wear long sleeve shirts, as protection from the abrasive tire surface.

Let the games begin!
