Bulletproof Bridgeports

Though best known for its hard parts and helmets, there is always more to California based Biltwell than is immediately obvious.
Do you sell gloves? Would you like to? Built for "track days, long days and every day," Biltwell's Bridgeport gloves are a top grade leather and synthetic hybrid with the industry standard rugged construction and racy silhouette.

However, as co-founder Bill Bryant explains in the latest edition of its 'Parts & Labor' magazine, "the stuff you can't see is what puts our most advanced glove on top of the box."
Bridgeport's molded plastic knuckle guards feature Neoprene padding to dissipate impact energy and fleece Lycra touch points on the inside keep sweaty palms dry by wicking moisture away from the skin.

Outside, supple goatskin leather, vented polyester and ballistic nylon combine for a glove that's "damn near bulletproof," says Bill.
