Features on the back side of the glove include a textile strap with a hook and loop closure and a three inch zipper with provide tighening at the wrist, internal vinyl covered reinforcement across the knuckles with additional inner foam padding, and SCOTT embrodiered across the center of the knuckles. Additional features include a sewn-in nylon lining, fourchettes, sidewalls, a partially elasticized wristband, a hook and clasp, an elasticized gauntlet wrist cuff, and a removable knit nylon insert. The essential character of the glove is imparted by the woven nylon outer shell. You have indicated that the glove will also be available in Ladies (style 2-9704) and Junior (style 9-9704) versions.
