Hatch Puncture-Resistant Gloves Feature Their Revolutionary X11™ Glove Liner Material
Through extensive research, Hatch has developed a proprietary blend of Honeywell Spectra®, fiberglass, and polypropylene they call X11™. Hatch uses this extraordinary material as a glove liner, as it provides a high level of cut and puncture resistance for the rigors of street duty. Additionally, this liner provides wicking properties that keep the hand cool and comfortable for all day use.
Hatch offers three glove models with the X11™ liner, tested for cut and puncture resistance under the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) test protocol 99-114.

Featuring the X11™ liner in the palm area, these gloves were tested to 23 lbs. of puncture protection under NIJ test protocol - the highest cut and puncture-resistance in the industry! The addition of Hatch's exclusive ArmorTip™ system provides protection for the leading edges of the index and small fingers against punctures. Neoprene with Chamude synthetic leather palms.
