The goal during the development was to bring to the Dive market a high quality, great fitting and well priced Level 5 cut resistant glove for the spearfishing, commercial and recreational scuba diving markets. It also needed to be a glove that our Cressi Australia dealers could sell with confidence while making a good margin. Bringing such a high quality product to market at such an aggressive price would not have been possible without the support and buying power of Cressi global.
The Cressi Defender is Certified in accordance with EN388 & EN420 regulations and is a LEVEL 5 cut resistant glove offering the highest level of cut resistance recognised within the standards, and was also able to achieve the highest score possible in abrasive resistance during the CE testing procedure. These amazing results were achieved using a HPPF “High Performance Poly Ethylene” material in the base construction of the glove. The glove is then dipped in an anti-slip, flexible and hardwearing “Nitrile” coating which provides long lasting additional abrasion protection, dexterity and amazing grip in almost any environment. This protective coating runs up the palm, over the top of the nails and down the sides of the fingers giving all over protection. If you have not personally used this style of glove before or you don’t stock them, I strongly suggest you look further into ranging the new Cress Defender Gloves
