Oakley SI Assault Gloves
Since the 1980s, Oakley has been providing U.S. troops with military gear and boots. Best known for its popular eyewear, it has spent millions on developing products for those in the armed forces. This partnership was formed to develop new technologies that improve the safety and performance of soldiers. Over time, Oakley's military line has transformed from a few models to a highly specialized division within the company. At its research facility in California, the company constantly works on new innovations. Some items are not available in retail stores, but luckily a number of military items can be purchased through public outlets.

Just got these gloves, haven't used them much but I can't wait to. They're really soft, have good feel in the hands, and are fitted really well. Coming from some hatch gloves that had a giant pad on the palm, its really nice to finally be able to feel comfortable holding my pistol.
I'll take my mechanix!

Save yourself the time, money, and frustration. Go get a pair of Mechanix tactical gloves. They put Oakleys to shame. Oakleys will probably work for airsofters and tacticool dudes but if you are actually doing Uncle Sam's dirty work better leave the Oakleys stateside.

I thought for $70 they would be a little more durable. The stitching around the thumb area tore within the first week of wearing them, on both pairs. While the hard knuckle is excellent and the over all feel of the glove is good, the glove falling apart I cannot over look. I love Oakley products, but even with the warranty tearing like this is unacceptable.. I've owned several pair of mechanix gloves that lasted years for 1/2 the price. *sigh
Lasted 1 week
Reviewer: Daniel G. | Wichita, KS.
Got these gloves for a K9 class. Lasted about 3 squads before the sewn between the thumb and index finger started to rip out. Made it another 3 days before the tear was down into the palm. Tried to get them warrantied and they are on back order till Oct. Militarygear was great, Oakley, not so much. Got a refund and switching to blackhawk.

I have bought 3 pairs of these, honestly I think they run kinda small, but after they getbroke in they fit normally, I'm on my 2nd deployment with these and they have held up very well, I would say that 75 % of my unit has a pair of these the coyote brown and khaki go great with our ocp,"multicam" uniforms, so far these have handled all that afghanistan can throw at them, and no rips yet so all in all great gloves!
Takes a lot of getting used to,
Reviewer: Dan | CA
I usually run gloves on cold(er) days and recently "stepped up" to these gloves. Compared to my other gloves, the range of motion was pretty poor and I physically could not reach the magazine release on my 1911 without totally breaking my grip and using my left hand to do so. I offset this by cutting off the index, middle finger and thumb on my right glove (I'm right handed) and they work adequately now. I'm sure there are better gloves on the market but for now, I have no interest in changing. I would not, however, run these gloves without modifying them. As always, it boils down to practice, training and personal preference.
