Not all search gloves are created equal. And when it comes to protecting your hands from fluids, you need fluid resistant gloves that also offer full dexterity and the ability to complete the job at hand without compromise. That's why 221B Tactical has developed an exclusive line of black police / tactical search gloves which offer fluid resistance and protection against viruses, bacteria and blood-borne pathogens.
Our Founder and CEO, Suresh Madhavan, is a decorated 13 year law enforcement veteran. He designed these gloves after he himself was unable to find a good pair of tactical search gloves to use on the job that offered protection for his hands against bodily fluids and other dangerous liquid substances he encountered while on the job as a police officer.
"As police officers on patrol, we deal with a wide array of calls for service on any given day. Many of these calls involve dealing with persons who may have some sort of bodily fluid on them; be it urine, vomit, saliva, feces or blood. And many times wearing rubber nitrile gloves did not offer adequate protection for my hands. There were countless incidents where the slightest contact sliced or tore my nitrile gloves open, exposing my skin to whatever fluids I was dealing with at that time. This made me very uneasy. And I was not alone. I saw the same thing happening to fellow police officers, EMTs, EMS workers and paramedics. That's when I knew something had to be done."
Police and first responders are often in a bit of a quandary on calls involving fluids, bodily fluids and potential blood-borne pathogens. They need to protect their hands against potentially harmful or deadly fluids but they also want to protect their hands against cuts, slashes, abrasions and impacts. Rubber nitrile gloves provide the fluid protection but are often weak and offer no protection against cuts, slashes, abrasions and impacts. Tactical police search gloves can offer protection against cuts, slashes, abrasions and impacts but don't offer protection against fluids; particularly bodily fluids.
The 221B Tactical line of Elite gloves offers, in some ways, the best of both worlds. You get full dexterity, breathable, cut-resistant, impact resistant, heat resistant and abrasion resistant search gloves that also features a full, 360° fluid resistant liner. This lining is constructed of a material similar to that used by many rubber glove manufacturers. In the end, you have a black, tactical search glove with the fluid resistant protection you desire.
