Burke launches new sailing glove range
Fri, 15 Feb 2013
With a new ergonomic grip design and sharp colour scheme, the design team from Burke have once again delivered with their latest short-fingered sailing glove range.
The grip system on both the natural (GLO82) and Performance Amara (GLS12) leather models has been revamped with the introduction of ergonomic palm and finger grip panels, providing a firmer and more comfortable grasp for trimmers.
The range’s stretch mesh back and supple Neoprene wrist closure complete with a handy watch cut-out have made it one of the most comfortable gloves in the market. To prevent accidental release from snagging, a double Velcro locking system completes the range’s transformation.
The GLO82 model is made from durable, marine-grade natural leather, while its big brother, the GLS12, is engineered from flexible Amara leather with abrasion-resistant Kevlar stitching that will remain just as soft after drying and maintain its form.
