Having been asked to repair many gloves trackside it pushed us to try to develop a glove with today's demands. We looked at the finances of most as well as considering the UV rays and perspiration. Today many gloves are made with a very thin leather. This does shortens the life of the glove tremendously. Most gloves today will be worn out in a very short time frame. The thinner leather does not stand up. So we sourced a cow hide manufacturer and asked for basic cow hide gloves with the basic needs. We also now have a Kangaroo/Cow mix glove with a little extra protection. All priced for the best value.
