PIG FDT Glove Sizing Chart
Ladies- tired of wearing men's tactical gloves that aren't the right fit? If you’ve ever wanted something better… your wish is now reality. Over 2 years in the making, the PIG FDT-Charlie Glove (Patented) uses gender-specific patterns to bring the perfect tactical fit of the FDT-Alpha gloves to the female shooter or operator. The FDT-Charlie offers ground breaking dexterity while providing much needed protection from the rigors of tactical work.
Developed by a Rogers Shooting School“Advanced” graduate with over a decade of experience in instructing Military and Law Enforcement personnel, the FDT-Charlie Gloves were designed to minimize impact on the female shooter’s grip. Instead of following the tired old routine of reinventing the Aviator Flight Glove, or making a “cool-looking" glove with padding and layers in all the wrong places, the PIG design team partnered with a sports-glove industrial designer to ensure that all the sizing benchmarks for women's gloves were met while maintaining the functional tactical design features of the PIG FDT-Alpha glove.
Featuring several industry firsts, the FDT-Charlie allows unfettered access to all your firearms controls and manipulations, without the overwhelming bulk of unnecessary padding and layers. When it comes to gloves you can shoot with, contrary to most of the other tactical gloves on the market, less IS more… the less you feel your gloves, the better you can shoot with them. As with ALL PIG Full Dexterity Tactical Gloves manufactured after summer 2015, the trigger fingers and thumbs feature conductive material to work with your touchscreen devices.

Priced competitively for the non-FR women's utility glove market, the PIG FDT-Charlies are the latest in a ground-breaking line of tactical gloves from PIG.
I bought the gloves for my daughter who shoots competitively with her high school shotgun team. The sizing charts are accurate thereby allowing us to correctly size the gloves. We purchased these particular gloves as they are articulated at the knuckles not impeding grip or dexterity while still providing some degree of heat protection. As my daughter has changed her grip of the forearm her finger was contacting the barrel resulting in discomfort after a few rounds of skeet and/or trap. The one negative I have is after only a few days of use they are already showing so wear where the gloves comes in contact with the corner of the shotgun rib. I understand shooting gloves will wear but this seems far too soon for such little use.
It’s about time I found a shooting glove that fits my tiny baby hands with out having to cut the fingers off. These gloves are super well made and truest do offer full dexterity. My only issue is that I measured for a small and they ended up being too tight. I highly recommend sizing up.
I love these! They fit snug and I’m still able to flex and bend my fingers; I don’t think I did the sizing correctly though. I did measure my hand && decided to purchase a size small, but I definitely had to break them in for a few days. I’m going to order a backup pair in medium to see how they compare. But great product, the feel + the durability is A+!
I could not be any happier with these gloves. I'm glad I took the time in ordering the correct size. I would have thought a small, but ordered the medium and they're perfect. Shipping was unbelievably quick and much appreciated!
While I was not initially comfortable buying a fitted glove online, SKD provided enough detail in the product writeup, including the sizing/measurement graphic, to make the purchase a success! It fits snugly as noted and my daughter loves the gloves, which she wore for a recent 8 hour modern sporting rifle class; extremely comfortable for 8 hours of shooting under the hot July sun. Not bulky at all and very breathable. Would definitely purchase this product again and was very happy with SKD’s service.
I loved the gloves (very high quality) but they were too small for me. So I returned them with no problem. I will buy the next size up.
First off, your quality customer service to me was aboveboard. The shipping was extremely fast. The women's full dexterity tactical gloves I ordered fit perfectly--just like the gloves I wanted!!! A+ Ladies and Gentlemen!!
These gloves are just incredible. When I first opened the box I thought they would be a bit too small. As soon as I tried them on, I knew they were perfection. The fit, style, comfort, padding beyond my expectations. Just waiting for the Range to reopen so I can get out there and shoot with these on.
I've had these gloves for years and have always meant to write a review...my sister just tried mine on and realized she needed a pair so I figured it was time! I am a small female (5'0", 112 lb) in the military and a police officer. I have two pairs of these gloves, and can't say enough of them. My coyote brown ones are used mostly for shooting on the range with the military, while my black ones are my tactical gloves for police work. If you've totally given up on trying gloves on at the store, because you know of the inevitable "finger overhang" that comes with EVERY single pair, these are the gloves for you. They FIT. They just fit. They fit like....a GLOVE! Haha. So refreshing to find a tactical glove made for a small female hand. You will not regret.
