As noted, the German Flecktarn summer gloves offered by Keepshooting.com are a German military surplus item. They were originally designed for and used by the members of the German Bundeswehr, the unified armed forces of Germany, which consists of an army, navy, air force, joint support services and central medical services. Though each pair of gloves was at one point issued and used, they are in very good condition and are still far from the end of their service lives. Many of the gloves show little to no wear at all, though because of the jobs they may have performed, some gloves may contain small tears or holes. Those looking for an inexpensive alternative that provides excellent protection need look no further than our German Flecktarn summer gloves.
Upon receiving the gloves, you will surely notice their military-grade craftsmanship. Each pair of gloves consists of a thin outer layer constructed from a soft canvas material, while the interior is lined with a thin, comfortable cotton layer. Though the thought of dual layers may make it seem as if these are unfit for summer work, they are very lightweight and extremely breathable. The real draw, however, is not in their light weight or breathability, but rather the inclusion of a protective layer of leather on the areas that are most vulnerable to wear and injury. The palm of each glove, along with the tips of every finger and the knuckles, has an added layer of leather to protect the most sensitive parts of the hand from dangerous elements that may be encountered during various types of labor. Additionally, the gloves extend several inches past the wrist for increased protection of the lower forearms. Another interesting feature is the inclusion of locking clasp that ensures you will never be searching for a single missing glove.
Then there is the camouflage pattern. Like many of our popular German military surplus items, the German Flecktarn summer gloves sport the easily noticed Flecktarn camouflage pattern. Flecktarn is a multicolor disruptive camouflage pattern, generally utilizing three or more colors. This particular pattern was designed for use in temperate woodland terrains, though by varying the colors, it is adaptable to other backdrops.
Just like our Polish camouflage gloves, we expect the German Flecktarn summer gloves to be a hot seller. If you are looking for a pair of durable work gloves, these summer gloves are a great inexpensive option.
Note: The German Flecktarn summer gloves are currently only available in size large (L).
