Milipol 17 – EMD / S&S Precision

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017


Bretagne-based EMD has an awesome booth which showcases the products of their various vendors.


Above you can see a manakin set up as a K9 handler wearing kit from a variety of manufacturers including S&S Precision.


While the booth is awesome, something S&S Precision is exhibiting in it is very interesting. They have new handwear called WetWerx Maritime Assault Gloves. Like the name says, they are designed for use in wet environments and come is cold and warm models, with usage prescribed by air, rather than water temperature.


The following construction is common to both models. The palm is Axe Suede making it very grippy in wet environments and incorporates keyhole thumb construction for improved articulation. The wrap-up index finger construction removes the seam off of your finger pad for better trigger feel. The other fingers use wrap-over construction for improved feel in the finger tips. This also makes it easier to pick things up. The trigger finger and the thumb edge (Gripmax thumb construction) are also conductive. Finally, they offer quick don and doff.

The differences come down to materials. Warm Maritime Assault Glove feature water repellant open mesh offering quick dry times. The Cold Maritime Assualt Glove is made 2mm Neoproene with wind resistant patches at the back of finger and hand. Its gasketed wrist seal prevents water flushing in order to keep your hand warmer.

Offered in standard handwear sizing in Grey. The Black colored Warm is a sample only. Available December 1st from
