That’s What She Said: StrongSuit Enforcer-Tac Gloves Review

| June 17, 2015 | 1 Comments

One of my favorite things from Shot Show 2015 was the line of gloves by StrongSuit.

StrongSuit has partnered with Gary Quesenberry, professional firearms instructor, competitive shooter, and Top Shot All-Star finalist, to design a glove for shooters. Their Q-Series Enforcer-Tac gloves come with features like:

  • Velcro closure wrist
  • Carabiner clip attachment for secure storage with your gear
  • Form-fitted pre-curved fingers for ultimate fit and performance
  • Breathable fabric on the back of the hand keeps you cool
  • Terry cloth sweat wipe
  • TAC-Sense palm material combines technology conductive performance with unparalleled fit and feel

They come is sizes XXS – XXL

I have some pretty small hands. The last pair of gloves I purchased were from the kids section at The Home Depot. They technically fit, but they were bulky and not very well made. I am thrilled to find a well made glove that fits my hand and doesn’t look like it belongs at the circus.

I used to cut the fingertips off of gloves because the bulk caught on the trigger and decreased sensitivity. As you can see, with my fingertips pressing down on a hard surface there is minimal extra material.

The other place bulk has been a problem was between the thumb and forefinger. Extra material in that area used to interfere with my ability to obtain a good master grip.

So far so good for use with a pistol, but what about a rifle? That’s when I really need a good glove. I wore them through an 8 hour defensive rifle class. Here are some action shots I took throughout the day:

Conclusion

Fit: Excellent fit that did not stretch out of shape through my rifle class. They were rained on, sprayed with Deet and rolled around in the mud. At the end of the day the gloves still fit well.

Sensitivity: Thanks to the lack of bulk in the fingertips, I never felt like I wasn’t finding the trigger properly. I had a pretty accurate day with my drills, that’s the best proof that trigger pull was not affected.

Features: The grommet came in very handy for keeping them attached to my bag in transport. I liked not having to bag up damp gloves I’d been wearing all day. During class I used the Velcro strip on the wrist to stick them to the Velcro on the outside of my dump pouch. It was faster than using a carabiner.

The conductive quality of the gloves is spotty at best. I took a few of the pictures used in this post with my phone while wearing them, but it became too time consuming to hit the screen in just the right way so I took them off. Honestly, it’s a nice idea but when I’m shooting I’m not really looking for a way to be able to text anyone.

Price: The StrongSuit Enforcer-Tac in black retail for $24.99 on Amazon Prime as of this writing. I think they are absolutely worth it.

Whether you have small hands, or extra extra large ones, check out StrongSuit’s full line of tactical, motorcycling and work gloves.
