For 501st approval:

  • The palm side has no quilted lines.

For level two certification (if applicable):
  • The gloves should be made of leather (more specifically, it should match the leather of the body suit).
  • The gloves should flare out at the end opening on the outside (little finger side), but not on the inside (thumb side).
  • There should be six rectangular sections created by the quilted lines on the upper surface; they are not of uniform width (the outer sections are smaller than the middle sections View).
For level three certification (if applicable):
  • The quilted lines should be very finely stitched, and the upper surface should be padded minimally.
  • The quilted lines in the flared section are stitched as a "V" turning the sixth (outermost) section into a "Y".
  • The stitching on the gloves, with the exception of the quilted lines, should be external.
  • The top and bottom of the glove in the flared section should not be directly sewn together; a gusset should adjoin them starting at the wrist bone. It should be approximately two inches in width at the end opening of the glove.
  • The finger portion (not including the thumb) of the glove should be constructed in a typical glove fashion and contain three fourchettes-one between each set of fingers.
