I got these gloves for primarily for shooting, some hunting, and when I deploy to the field with the Army. The gloves are perfect for all these functions. I can manipulate and operate all my weapons really well with them. I also like the hunt and deploy with them when the weather is warm because my hands don't overheat, they're easy to get on and off even when sweaty, and they work so well with weapons, and they are really rugged. They have protected my hands from all sorts of abuse so far. Great gloves.
