Slash And Knuckle Protection In One

Made from 100% genuine leather, Sand Defender Gloves, from VestGuard are lined using DuPontTM Kevlar® aramid fibres for warmth, comfort and slash protection, from sharp objects like glass or blades. Double knitted, this base layer provides excellent slash resistance to the palm, and fingers because the fibres are closer together offering extra resistance compared to other models on the market.

Sand in the knuckles and upper finger area is designed to protect the back of the hand against fractures by up to 99%.

The Defender gloves conform to British Standards (BS) EN388 with velcro Wristband for a personal fit, and sand only adds 6 ounces to the weight of the glove.

As sold to:

police, prison officers, security teams, door staff, and close protection officers

Other applications include:
Motorbike and bicycles, kick boxing (sport)

An independant review by Gunmart named the Defender gloves "The best gloves they'd ever seen"
"half the price of many other gloves that are in many ways inferior to them"
(A copy of this review is attached as a PDF)
