Tough as Nails Archery Shooting Glove
This glove is made from real kangaroo leather in the finest quality which is renowned for its strength, lightness and durability. The fingertips are of course double layered and double stitched. The thin grain and evenly distributed elastin in Kangaroo leather support a cleaner release compared to standard cow leather.
This shooting glove is the perfect choice for stronger bows or people training heavily. Or really just for anyone that wants a super long-lasting shooting glove – there is a reason why Kangaroo leather is also commonly used in whips and motorcycle suits.
The TRAD Glove Kangaroo has a longer break in time but due to Kangaroo leather being uniformly stretchy it will mould perfectly around your fingers for the perfect 2nd skin feeling.
This glove, like all our gloves, is in the European Style. This means slightly longer fingers that allow for a deep hook as well as a short hook and therefore has longer fingers and longer finger tips.
The glove is fixed easily with a Velcro wrist band, that can also be used for adjusting the perfect fit. The edges are bound in black and soft cloth for that little bit of extra comfort and a perfect -pro-look.
Please note that Kangaroo leather has a noticeable grain and does crease easily which will have no effect on its performance. After a while it will darken and may develop a patina – perfect for that traditional archery look and feel! Kangaroos are not an endangered species and leather is always made from dead animals which are harvested mainly for their meat.
This is Markus every day shooting glove.
How to fit your shooting glove:
For a comfortable fit:
Measure your shooting hand from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the hand in mm and select the closest Hand Length upwards. E.g. if the length measured was 182mm, then select size L.
For a tight fit:
(some competitive archers opt for a tight fit, preferring a tighter glove even if this means a compromise in comfort):
Measure your shooting hand from the tip of the middle finger to the base of the hand in mm and select the closest Hand Length downwards. E.g. if the length measured was 182mm, then select size M.
For very strong and large hands: Please select one size up, finger diameter increases with the sizes.
