I've tested Sigal's latest Shield gloves, and here's the lowdown. These 1-millimeter thick, cut-proof gloves, made of Hppe, stood out for their durability and protective polymer coating on the palm and fingers. Perfect for summer spearfishing. They impressed me with their robust feel and convenient Sigal-branded packaging
The gloves, in light gray with the brown Sigal logo, not only look good but also offer an excellent grip. The rubberized polymer coating not only enhances grip but also protects against tears and abrasion, especially in rocky areas. Despite their sturdiness, the Shield gloves are comfortable and elastic, fitting well and allowing easy finger movement, even for those with larger hands.
The elastic cuff ensures a snug fit, preventing rolling up on the wrist, a common issue in lower-quality summer gloves. Though not waterproof, they excel in durability and cut resistance. Even after aggressive testing against rocks, they looked brand new after a rinse with fresh water.
The Shield gloves boast an excellent quality-to-cost ratio, priced between 18 and 21 euros. Their anatomical cut ensures a snug fit and excellent finger mobility. Made from Hppe, a military-grade anti-cut polyethylene fabric, they guarantee resistance to abrasion and durability over time. The light gray color with black speckles and the brown logo adds to their aesthetic appeal.
Durability is a standout feature, thanks to the choice of Hppe material. After intentional abrasion and cut tests, the gloves showed no signs of wear, proving their resilience. The thin 1mm thickness provides good tactile sensitivity, crucial for handling rifles during shooting.
In terms of aesthetics, the gloves look appealing in and out of the water, with a grayscale coloring that doesn't distract. The technical specifications include a 1mm thickness, Hppe material, and a rubberized polymer coating for protection and grip. Overall, the Shield gloves receive high ratings for cut, material, durability, touch, aesthetics, and price. They're a top choice for a long-lasting summer glove.
