Henri Lloyd Launches 2017 Glove Collection

12th May 2017
New for 2017 is the Henri Lloyd Deck Grip Glove; available in both long and short fingered versions New for 2017 is the Henri Lloyd Deck Grip Glove; available in both long and short fingered versions

Glove design is a very specialist area and Henri Lloyd has developed their 2017 range focusing on ergonomics and the use of specialist fabric technology to deliver durability, performance, grip and dexterity.

The Henri Lloyd Pro-Grip Glove, available in both long and short fingered, is constructed from tough yet flexible fabrics and components including Kevlar® thread, the superior grip is provided via MAXGRIP technology which is a sticky synthetic rubber, delivering higher levels of grip and articulation whilst also offering protection against rope burn, an additional benefit is that the MAXGRIP is resistant to water absorption.

Kevlar® thread is used throughout for maximum strength and durability, the gloves also feature a neoprene wrist band, combined with a double touch and close strap. The back of the gloves are constructed from a nylon stretch mesh which offers maximum flexibility and fast drying properties. Development within our 2017 glove collection has resulted in new design features including an articulated wrist design for better watch visibility and pull tabs on the short fingered versions for ease of removal.

Also new for 2017, is the Henri Lloyd Deck Grip Glove; available in both long and short fingered versions.

The Deck Grip Glove provides excellent protection and durability with increased articulation via the use of flexible fabrics and components. Quick drying Amara® synthetic leather is used to provide extra reinforcement and protection at the palm and fingers, as with our new glove design for 2017, the Deck Grip glove benefits from the double touch and close wrist strap, articulated wrist design and pull tabs.

For colder conditions, Henri Lloyd has developed the Henri Lloyd Neoprene Winter Glove. The combination of the thermal and water resistant properties of Neoprene with the added benefit of the MAXGRIP technology on the palms and fingers makes them the ideal choice for winter sailing. The gloves also feature a double cuff system for integration into a waterproof top or wetsuit.

The gloves are available from selected Irish chandleries such as Viking Marine and CH Marine
