Agilite and Mechanix Wear Join Forces with the M-PACT Agilite Edition

Monday, November 25th, 2019

Previously only available to Government Clients, the Multicam only, M-Pact Agilite Edition is now available commercially. 

The M-Pact Agilite Edition was the result of a collaboration between Agilite Systems Inc. and Mechanix Wear, the world leader in tactical hand protection.  They teamed up to develop a unique glove for Tier 1 SOF who wanted the best of all worlds, the protection of a Mechanix M-Pact Covert glove but the tactile capabilities of a fingerless glove.

The semi-fingerless design conforms to your hand like a full glove and yet gives you the dexterity and control of bare hands for your trigger finger, finding a pulse, changing ammunition belts, using smart devices comfortably, or other mission-critical tasks.

Combat-proven downrange, The M-PACT Agilite Edition protects military and law enforcement professionals with EN 13594 rated impact protection. D3O® palm padding dissipates high-impact energy to reduce hand fatigue.
