Ansell Industrial Healthcare has been selected as the supplier of combat gloves by the Australian Defence Force (ADF).
Ansell will supply ActivArmr mission critical gear to the ADF for its tactical, peacekeeping or relief operations. ActivArmr is designed and engineered to provide optimal protection in extreme environments where teams need reliable gear to help them do their job safely and precisely.
A leading supplier of tactical and utility hand protection products to defence forces and peacekeeping operations worldwide, Ansell has previously supplied combat gloves to the US Army and Marine Corps as well as the US Navy and US Air Force on multiple contracts.
Ansell’s ActivArmr Combat and ActivArmr Combat Extended Cuff gloves were selected by the ADF for mounted and dismounted combatants following a competitive tendering process, which included user field trials. Ansell will supply ActivArmr gloves to the ADF for the next three years.
Both models of combat gloves were placed on the US Army Approved Product List last year.
