Can your gloves live up to VBSS?

Ambrose-6284Yes VBSS! Non-Visit Board Search & Seizure the way it needs to be.  Read and Share this outstanding review on the Mechanix Wear glove!

Hearing the water of the ocean, slapping on the side of the small boat we are riding in always sounds exciting to me.  Because I know in the next few minutes my whole world will change, either for the better or for the worst.  One thing is for sure, is that we have 2 minutes until contact.  Everyone reaches for every ones gear to double check everything.  Already had my mask on over my head, feeling only the cold wind hitting a small portion of my forehead and eyelids.  Had gloves on which so happen to be Mechanix Wear black 5mm covert.  Which surprisingly keeping my hands warm and thin enough for me to feel the trigger on my weapon.


We can see the ship as we approach on the Starboard side and aft.  We connected the Jacob’s ladder and started to climb.  I know from before, that with the wind blowing off the ocean really makes your finger cold to the bone.  To the point where it is hard to grab a hold of the ladder or whatever.  The Mechanix gloves made it easy for me.  Grabbing the ladder and pulling me up makes life easy!
