HiDex NSR Leather combines the comfort and dexterity of a mechanics style glove with significant needle stick protection. Gloves work great for baggage search and correctional facility pat-downs and searches. In addition to puncture and sharps resistance, the cut resistance provided in these gloves is very high, equivalent to more than 2 times the cut resistance provided by Duponts Kevlar. The HiDex NSR Leather has a layer of synthetic leather, with 2 layers of protective materials underneath. Protective materials are made in the United States.
