Comfy, close fitting, thin enough to feel a bit with your finger tips but tough enough to protect your hands. The adjustable velcro back and wrist helps make the fit perfect. They are not that warm, nor are they very waterproof but for protecting your hands from injury they are great and that's what they're for. These are much better than issue gloves and although they are quite expensive I believe this is a case of you get what you pay for.

HASH(0x9a29f9e4) out of 5 stars BlackHawk SOLAG gloves w/ Kevlar 20 May 2011
By Acebris - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Before I purchased these gloves, I read the other reviews of them on various sites, after getting them yesterday I think I can address some concerns other people might have about these gloves.

1) Size: Some reviewers have an issue with sizing, complaints ranging from "too tight" to the fingers being all the same length. These gloves are made partially of leather, primarily the palms; all leather-made goods have a "break in" period (belts, shoes, holsters, etc) where they will feel tighter and smaller than you expected. This is normal until the leather relaxes a bit. That said, keep in mind that not everyone's hands are the same, some people have thicker hands than others (mechanics in particular), if you think you fall into this category...you should try to locate a BlackHawk dealer and try the gloves on in the store. I measured the length of the fingers on my gloves...and they aren't the same.

2) Stitching: Yes, there is a lot of stitching present. I noticed a few people who had issues with there being too many stitches on the palms. This is a strength issue. These gloves are made of leather, and they're expected to see a lot of use, consequently there are a lot of stitches present to ensure the gloves don't come apart at the seams.

3) Made in China: Yes, these gloves are made in China. The package my gloves came in had this labeled clearly. The website here says they're made in the USA. I believe this is a problem with the item description being outdated or just wrong. However, are you really surprised? I wasn't able to find a pair of American made cut/flame/flash-resistant gloves that included everything I was looking for (padding, Kevlar cut/flame/flash, leather palm, double closure, end at the wrist). Don't get me wrong, there ARE Kevlar cut/flame/flash-resistant gloves which are made in the USA, but none that I found fitted my criteria.

If I happen to find some that have everything I want, but are made in the USA, I'd gladly ditch these in a flash. That being said, in my opinion, there is nothing "low quality" about these gloves. They're as I expected them to be. I deducted one star for one reason, the joining between the index finger and the thumb, where a rifle or pistol (depending on type and model) may wear on the gloves, probably should have an aditional layer. I don't know how much this might affect the life of the glove...probably not much...but it is something to consider, depending on what types of rifles or pistols you carry.

HASH(0x9abbf888) out of 5 stars No longer what they were... 3 April 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I've been wearing Blackhawk S.O.L.A.G. gloves for years while deployed. Just re-purchased after my previous set was stolen, and I am surprised by the degradation in quality since I last purchased a pair. They are not horrible by any means, but I would no longer recommend them at this price point. A pair of PIG FDT gloves will serve you much better, and for significantly less.

HASH(0x9a456294) out of 5 stars Seam popped on first day. 4 Aug. 2012
By SM - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The gloves seemed well made but just wearing them this afternoon to break them in before real use, the seam halfway down the length of the index finger came loose, popping open. Looks like a manufacturing defect in one glove.

Updated 4 September 2012 - The Amazon merchant partner, Optics Planet, was great for customer service, so I returned the first pair and started using a replacement set. After six days of use spread over two weeks, a seam popped on the thumb of the right glove while driving, making a half-inch hole. Turning the glove inside out to try to repair them in the field, I found the stitching seems to have been run out to the very edge of the leather, so it pulled out just like on the first pair. Once again, poor manufacturing. The quality of the leather and Nomex fabric seem good, but sadly the pieces are so badly stitched together that the gloves can't be counted on.

HASH(0x9a29fe10) out of 5 stars Made in China 29 April 2012
By Trouble - Published on Amazon.com
Not a bad glove in the past. I have been issued them by the Army. The quality has gone down, loose stitching and you have to be careful of the size. Also, cost is a little steep, being made in China by cheap labor for less than a dollar a day I feel I got ripped off. Plus being a military member and seeing things made by hostile countries I feel I can not purchase them.

HASH(0x9b3031b0) out of 5 stars Poor Quality - deteriorates quickly under heavy use 11 Nov. 2012
By TechMasterVern - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was so excited when I ordered these gloves, tried them on and they fit like a dream.
Waiting waiting for the weather to turn nice so I could get out and use them in the yard.
After 2 hours of raking leaves, and another hour of removing tree branches from the yard (hurricane Sandy)I had holes in three fingers. I am very displeased with the quality of theses gloves, when they can't handle three hours of light to medium labor. (Even got some blisters through the gloves)Hopefully the seller will refund my purchase price...I am not a fan.
