DescriptionMedium Cuff Kangaroo Skin Glove/ Available in sizes: S, M, L, XL
This is Western Sporting's very comfortable and durable kangaroo-skin glove. It is a short-cuffed glove with the hawk perching areas covered with a double skin of leather. Kangaroo is known for being very puncture resistant and durable while also being light in weight. We rate our gloves based on use and size of raptors for which they are used. This gauntlet will serve the falconer well for raptors from 100 grams (kestrels) right up to 36 ounces (Peregrines, Gyrkins, Harris, etc.). The measurement from the back of the cuff to the tip of the index finger is approximately 10 1/2 inches.

Care of your falconry glove: We recommend that you do not use oil on falconry gloves as it can harbor disease-causing pathogens which can also attack thread and fibers in the leather.
Instead, if you feel you do need to treat them with something, then they should be treated with falconry jesse (jess) grease. See related items below. Actually, for the health of your hawk, we recommend that you begin each hawking season with a new glove! Always discard your glove if you hawk has been sick and is being treated to avoid reinfection.
