10 Zero Co. introduces the 9mm performance glove. The 9mm features a breathable, heat- and cold-resistant Zeus Clarino palm and thumb reinforcement panel. Zeus Clarino material has been multi-tested and proven to be a material superior to leather in wet and/or extreme conditions. The 9mm glove also features stretch Spandex top-hand panel, snag-resistant seams and double stitching on high wear areas. It utilizes TPR hook-and-loop closure and is machine washable. Identification logos available on the glove include POLICE and SHERIFF.
The numerous skeletal and muscular degrees of neural control systems provide for tremendous dexterity that allows for both delicate exploration and versatile manipulation of objects. With approximately 30 dedicated muscles and approximately the same number of kinematic degrees of freedom, the hand can take on all variety of shapes and functions, serving as a hammer one moment and a powerful vice or a delicate pair of tweezers the next.
This is the blue print that the 10 Zero Company 9mm glove was developed from. To cover the hand with anything has an effect on the normal function of the hand. 10 Zero created the 9mm glove with innovative design and materials that would provide the least resistance to the movement and dexterity of the hand. This is true innovation to the Law Enforcement industry, as all other gloves are built for a specialty purpose. The question we addressed with the 9mm glove was, "Can you wear the glove for an entire shift?"
Ease of use
The 9mm glove's design and materials are all based on providing the wearer maximum dexterity. The materials must be able to stretch with the natural movement of the hand at all times. This creates less resistance and gives the wearer confidence that he can perform any task. By using one's shoe size to determine the proper fit, finding the right size of 9mm glove can be done with ease. This reduces the need to have a flexible tape to measure the width of the hand. The 9mm sizing has proven successful 90% of the time.
Everyone claims to use the best materials and manufacturing. The 10 Zero 9mm glove takes it to a new level. We place our gloves in situations that subject them to 50 times the wear that a Law Enforcement Officer will but them through. The 9mm glove is used by industry, mechanics and motor-cross riders. All of these uses put the design and materials to the ultimate test to assure the officer on the street has the best quality glove.
The 10 Zero 9mm glove has a feature that stands alone in the Law Enforcement industry. The glove is machine washable and we recommend that the user wash them at least once every two weeks. Using no bleach, just throw them in with the load of dark clothes. Air drying is recommended but, if they get thrown into the dryer, they have proven to survive just fine. Being machine washable should not be discounted as a true innovation! With sweat soaking into the glove from the inside, and all the things an officer touches the outside of the glove with, it only makes sense to wear a glove that is machine washable.
The innovation of the 10 Zero 9mm glove is its versatility. The design is not a 10% improvement to the many gloves that are already offered to the Law Enforcement Professional. The 9mm is a combination of proven design and materials that cross over from athletics and industry to the Law Enforcement profession.
