    Thumbs up Product Review: Hatch EM007-MD Shooting Gloves

    Some of you saw my thread asking about shooting gloves. In that thread I got several good recommendations, but ultimately went with the Hatch EM007 Elite Marksman shooting gloves.







    My main reasons for getting gloves was:
    1 - *some* weather protection (cold and wet)
    2 - some hand protection for long range days
    3 - some protection from training with paint rounds
    4 - increased grip in sweaty/tactical situations

    First impressions:
    I really liked how these felt the first time I put them on. The kangaroo skin palm is nice and has great grip on things, and the material on the back is breathable but covers well. I like how far these go up my wrist as well. I practiced some concealed draws with them on and they were flawless...as fast as with no gloves and they didn't get hung up on anything extra in the process.

    Range impressions:
    Exactly what I was looking for. Great grip on the pistol. Had no issues with being able to handle the pistol for any action. I loaded empty mags, depressed the mag release, racked the slide, locked the slide from racked position, and did everything else the way I could without gloves. They were great. Shooting went really well too, one of my best shooting days at the range.

    Negatives:
    Size. I found a site that carried them that had Hatch's recommended sizing based on a measurement around the hand just below the knuckles. This led me to a Medium size. The palm fits great but the fingers are a little long for me, but I have big palms and shorter fingers...so this was to be expected. The only thing that could improve the gloves would be a little shorter fingers which would speed up the process of loading rounds into the mags. A few times the extra material at the end would get caught between rounds.

    Here are some pics of my pair gripping the pistol:




    Hope the review was beneficial. I would recommend these gloves to anyone.

    If you're ever looking for something to use in the shoot houses or real world scenarios give the Oakley Assault Gloves a try. Also if you are Military/Goverment you can get them even cheaper through their Government only website https://usstandardissue.com/default.aspx The knuckle protectors are a nice addition.

    Nice review.

    I always liked plain really thin tight fitting vegetable tanned kidskin gloves for shooting since my hands never really get that cold unless it's subzero outside.

    I also hate any extra leather material at the ends of the fingers.

    My old trick to "form fit" them was to buy them a half size smaller...soak them briefly in hot water and then just wear them indoors until they dried out.

    A real pain but, it made them fit skin tight.
