I don’t think I will ever really get use to wearing gloves because there are just too many situations that you can get yourself in that you’ll really wish you could just take the glove off and use your hands, the problem with that, is that there are going to be times you wish you did have gloves on. I’ve been wearing Original Swat boots for about 7 months now and even though I can feel it at the end of the day when I take them off, and I know that wearing a pair of sneakers at work gives my feet and legs a break, working in rough terrain or broken glass ect. will make you glad you have something thick between your feet and the ground. There are always extreme circumstances in the Law Enforcement community and knowing how to be versatile and adapt is what is important, you may want to have a pair of warm gloves for extremely cold weather, but have something light to protect you from heat.
Even in the hot summer months it’s wise to be toting a pair of gloves in your range bag or tactical vest because there will be situations where you will have to pick up something hot or rough and if it grosses you out enough, just toss the gloves away and buy another pair later. A well thought out tactical vest should easily fit a pair of gloves in it without taking up much room. I have a Woolrich Elite Style 4903 tactical vest that has Vickers tactical gloves, Blackhawk elbow and knee pads in them for the what ifs as well as gun parts, batteries, and ammo. I think all glove will take getting use to but keeping it simple and not over doing it with Soviet style winter gloves that can only fit in the trigger guard of an AK is unnecessary. We’ve had almost zero complaints about durability with these gloves and rarely sizing issues if you measure your hand properly before buying them.
