Post SHOT Show Wrapup – Outdoor Research Glove System

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Over a decade ago, Outdoor Research developed the Modular Glove System for USSOCOM. In the ensuing years, there have been upgrades to not only that system but to protective handwear across the board. One of those improvements is the introduction of options. Rather than a one-size-fits-all system, the concept of choices and a menu-based system has become popular. Now, OR has released a new handwear system with more options than ever.


This brochure from OR gives you a good overview of their latest Modular Glove System. The concept is that users will be able to choose which handwear best suits their operational requirememts rather than issuing a large kit to everyone.

Post SHOT Show Wrapup – Roper Fast Rope Glove from Line of Fire

Wednesday, January 27th, 2016

Developed in conjunction with former Navy SEAL Dom Raso, the Roper from Line of Fire is an over glove for Fast Rope insertions. The Roper fits over your standard assault gloves for the insertion phase and are easily removed, leaving your assault gloves in place, so that you don’t have to stop and change handwear.

The Roper is optimized for use with other LoF gloves as the palm is lined with the grippy TEGS material. When a LoF globe with TEGS palm is slipped into the Roper, it offers an excellent grip. Naturally, the TEGS lined palm will enhance use with other gloves as well. Below, Dom goes over the Roper’s features.
