When I first saw the Overlord Glove prototype in November last year, the first thing that struck me was the unique look of the distinctively-shaped leather panels/components of the glove. The second thing I thought to myself was “I gotta have a pair of these”. So began the process of bugging Mike and Michele at OR Gear every couple of months wondering when the Overlords would finally come out. In tan, too, of course.
The Overlord gloves are designed as a replacement for the summer flyer’s glove – a lightweight, technical weapons-handling glove for patrolling and combat with the emphasis on ‘weapons-handling’. The Overlord is constructed of Massif Wolverineâ„¢ 4-way stretch, double-bonded layer Nomex for fire-resistant protection, and digital textured leather on the palms, fingers and panels. Kevlar thread is used, with all exposed seams double-stitched.
