PIG FDT Alpha Touch Gloves from SKD Tactical


I’ve been wearing the Patrol Incident Gear gloves for quite awhile now. I really appreciate the fit and dexterity. About two weeks ago, SKD Tactical contacted me and told me that they had a new variant of the Full Dexterity Tactical coming out that is compatible with touch screens for mobile devices. They sent me a pair and they work as advertised. The PIG gloves were already awesome, now, they are even better.

FEATURES (* indicates industry firsts for a tactical glove):
-*Single Layer Multi-Piece Palm- Designed specifically so that only one layer of material contacts your shooting grip.
-*Sensitized and Isolated Trigger Finger- The thinnest available Clarino™ material available, only on the trigger finger for ultimate sensitivity.
-*Selective Forschette Material- Inside forschettes are ventilated for maximum wicking. Outer forschettes are Clarino for durability.
-*Low Profile Hook Closure- Reduces abrasion on clothing.
-*Flex Joints- Enhanced flexibility and ventilation on each finger.
-*Dual Flex Joint Trigger Finger- Providing maximum flexibility where you need it most.
-*Silver Conductive Thread- Maximum reliability for touch screen use with no loss in tactile dexterity (Alpha TOUCH model ONLY).
-Bar-Tacked Para Cord Pull Loop… YES, NOW BAR-TACKED..
-Short Cuff- Lightweight comfort and convenience.
-Micro Suede Nose Wipe- Fights against cold-weather drip.
-Ventilation holes in Palms and Fingers- Increased wicking.
-Isolated Edge Padding- Protection without compromising the shooting grip.
-Wrap-Over Finger Tips- Provides additional comfort and protection for finger nails.
-Stretch Cordura 1000D Padded Knuckles- Stretch Cordura reduces pressure on the seams, thin padding takes the edge off of impacts.

    Tried these…kinda underwhelmed.

      what didn’t you like?

      • RAL says:

        The production quality did not seem to me to as high as that of MechanixWear which are more affordable and easier to find.

        • SSD says:

          Wow, that was not my experience at all. In fact, the opposite and I ordered mine online from Grey Group.

        • Mobious says:

          And it’s funny because I can operate an iPhone with my Mechanix gloves on no problem, need to add some pressure but saves $15

        I also have used these. Working a very busy Entry Control point, 12 hour shifts, at an Air Force Base. Used to protect my hands from the Funk and operate ID verification system. The stitching on the wrist Velcro strap gave out like in days and the fingertips eventually have disintegrated. I know it’s meant to be somewhat disposable but I was disappointed. And made in China, sigh. I have been using 215 Gear’s extremely lightweight operators gloves for about 6 months now, and they are well built – they stand up to the washing machine , Dryer and liberal applications of alchol hand sanitizer when I run across a particularly nasty homeless person or obviously sick person. And they cost about the same and are made in the U.S. Check’em out

    I have a set of these, and I love them. They were literally a perfect fit: not to tight, not loose at all. I will say that I still intend to cut the index and thumb off, as I do still want my tactile capabilities at 100%, but these are the closest I’ve come to not wanting to cut them off.

  4. Ryan says:

    I’ve had mine for about a month but just as I decided I could love them, today I burned through the palm of my left glove all the way through to my skin just from pulling a nylon rope under tension. I don’t mean that I was rapelling with it or even allowing the rope to slide through my hands. The friction from gripping and pulling was enough to burn out the palm. Pretty unsat, as comfy as they are.

    Operationally these gloves are junk. Civilian Tacti-cool gun range ninja crap. About every 2 months I’d wear out pairs of Wiley-x CAG gloves and camelback MCX gloves. These pig gloves wouldn’t last through mission prep. If these gloves are only good for a trip to the local shooting range (it basically says that on skd’s website), do yourself a favor and just goto walmart and buy a pack of frigging icotoners or man up and use you’re bare hands.
