The Op. Zulu Professional Duty Glove (Slash proof) offers superior comfort, fit and appearance at a competitive price. The outer is constructed from water resistant, full-grain, black leather that provides a quality, uniform finish that is equally suitable for the parade ground as out on the job. The glove is also 100% lined with slash resistant DUPONT™ KEVLAR®, covering the whole of the hand, palm, fingers, thumb, back and wrist, unlike cheaper rivals which only line certain areas.
The signature hook and loop wrist wrap closure system gives these gloves superior comfort and security improving tactile feel and grip and ensuring the gloves will never come off in a scuffle or a loose cuff ever getting caught. The unique closure system also gives enhanced protection on the commonly vulnerable and often under protected wrist area as well as keeping out cold, water or debris.
The KEVLAR® Aramid Fibre is the industry standard in cut protection making the Op. Zulu Professional Duty Glove (Slash proof) as safe as you can get. Customers are happy to recommend these gloves:
“This is a very well made product with good quality materials. The leather is soft and supple which provides good grip. The wrap around wrist closure takes a little getting used to but when they are on they feel right. I would certainly recommend these gloves and the price is very good.”
“one of the absolute most useful things about these gloves if you are in the Police Service is their appearance. An incredibly fancy pair of Oakley hard knuckle gloves, is absolutely no use to you if they're against force policy or your skip doesn't like them. With these, once the cuffs are hidden they look exactly the same as the gloves issued in most forces.”
“At first I thought the wrist wrap was a bit overkill, but once I put them on and did them up I though ‘Why don't all gloves have this!’. Honestly I was really surprised by how well they fit, normally gloves have a tiddly bit of velcro that you are forever trying to pull round your wrist to get tight enough, or worse yet a useless popper down the side and some week elastic, but these are truly an excellent fit and the material provides another layer of protection on the wrist too. Don't bother paying more and don't waste your money paying less, just buy these!”

I'm a large in every other glove but these come in a little on the smaller size, probably due to the kevar lining.
So I'd suggest going one size up.
Now for the importance part. Are they slash proof?
Yes they are. I had someone try and stab me on a door the very first time I worse these and they did exactly what it says on the tin....erm....packet.
These are by far the best value for money slash proof gloves available in my opinion.
Just need to but another pair now...damn you drunk angry chavs with knives....
Brilliant, they fit like a glove 👏 👌
All products are very good quality
Excellent value for money. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Initially tried the Turtleskin Alphas for a bit of needle protection whilst searching. Had a few issues with them in terms of comfort and poor protection between the fingers though so switched to these.
First difference is that these gloves are SO COMFY! They're like memory foam slippers for your hands, but without losing too much sensation. The wrist straps are fairly unique but I actually really like the extra security and wrist protection that they give. The gloves feel like they'd give decent insulation in the cold weather without being too hot in the summer. The all round slash protection is a major plus, too. Although I'm hoping not to test that out any time soon.
Size-wise, I wear large vinyl glove at work and found the large in these to be quite smug without being uncomfortable. Tight gloves can restrict blood flow which tends to speed heat loss in colder weather so I went with an XL, which gives a little more room whilst still fitting... like a glove.
