A variety of materials makes up the glove’s five layers of protection. Zylon (a ballistic fiber similar to Kevlar) is used for the mesh inner lining and stitching. Soft, supple kangaroo skin in the palm and fingers provides enhanced feel, while a leather suede patch in the palm offers improved grip. Cowhide (more durable than kangaroo) is used in most other areas of the glove, while Kushitani K-Foam (proprietary memory foam) is layered under cowhide in several critical areas, including the meaty part of the palm, for added abrasion resistance and impact absorption. The pinky and ring fingers are wrapped in a rugged exterior Zylon cloth.
