Only the backside of the gloves, as well as the cuffs, remain uncoated. You state that the component weight breakdown of the glove is 68% nitrile and 32% nylon fabric.

Style #TG731 is a pair of knee pads constructed of ½-inch thick polyurethane foam within a textile outer shell of polyester fabric. The knee pads also feature two elasticized straps with adjustable hook-and-loop closures in order to secure the fit of the pads on the wearer.
