Black Military Gloves with white writing?

I figured you guys would know if anybody does. There is a pair of tactical gloves (Can't tell what it is, maybe neoprene) that I commonly see Marines wearing in videos and documentaries and so on. They are black with white writing down the backside of the hand. I was just wondering what it said. I am assuming it is military issued since I see it so often. Anybody know?

That's it! Thanks Tommy.

Kind of disappointed though, I thought they said like "Semper Fidelis" or something....

Oakley makes some really bad ass tactical gloves. I want some for work but they're like $50 with the military/leo discount.

+1 for the Oakely gloves. I generally can't stand gear queers, but these are head and shoulders above Mechanix, whose gloves are poster children for planned obsolescence.

PM me if you're interested CP

Hmm, $10 vs $50.

Are the Oakley gloves 5 times better than Mechanix?

The ones with the carbon fiber knuckle shield? I want a pair of those so bad. I generally bust my knuckles at least once every time I work on a car, and usually I see it coming "This is a bad idea" and it turns out to be....

if you wear them against mechanix gloves? yes. the knuckes are carbon fiber/plastic protected. i can't imagine punching someone with them.

I went and counted how many pairs of Mechanix gloves I still have: 6

All of them with either a ripped finger, palm, or the space between your fingers (no idea what to call that). I do like their 'skin' version though. It's really prone to ripping, but they're the thinnest gloves I've found. Used them on two deployments.

Finally got my first set of Oakley's and it's been nothing but 'would-of-could-of-should-of' as far as buying them earlier goes. The upgrade in build quality is glaringly obvious and the knuckles (I don't think they're real carbon fiber) aren't a bad idea, but I don't remember ever wishing I had that protection.

Click on where it says "9 More" under "Gloves by Brand". You'll see lots of styles of tac gloves. If you're interested in alternatives.
