Mechanix Wear – ‘The Original’ High Dexterity 0.5mm Covert Glove


A short while ago, Mechanix Wear came out with a thinner variant of their ‘The Original’ glove design. ‘The Original’ high dexterity Covert glove features a 0.5mm synthetic leather palm for optimal tactile control. The synthetic leather extends to the form-fitting finger design, which reduces material bunching and improves feel. Breathable TrekDry material form-fits the hand for optimal dexterity. The wrist consists of a Thermal Plastic Rubber closure for a secure fit and nylon cord loop for storage.

My experience with the ‘The Original’ high dexterity covert has been overall positive. It’s a very dexterous and comfortable glove that offers precise control when manipulating a weapon, and it also manages to stay cool.

    Anyone else have an issue with the little finger being to long? Have the same problem with my work gloves so I’m pretty sure its just me.

    Soldiers and LE that work with pyro/demo- stay away.

    Dexterity is great, tell dexterity melts to your skin.
