HIRZL uses exclusive GRIPPP™ technology in their kangaroo leather TRUST Series of golf gloves that provide demonstrably better grip in dry weather and up to 5X better grip in wet weather over most other glove brands. HIRZL's SOFFFT™ Flex Cabretta glove uses the company's 72-step tanning procedure that extends the peak performance level of the glove far longer than many other brands. The entire series of HIRZL gloves are washable. HIRZL golf gloves have been reviewed by the USGA and R&A and found to be fully conforming to the rules of golf. HIRZL is also the Official Golf Glove of the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championships. HIRZL golf gloves are available in three series: TRUST Control for the ultimate in grip; TRUST Feel for lower handicap players and those seeking better grip and performance in all types of weather conditions and; SOFFFT Flex for unsurpassed softness and long-lasting performance in a Cabretta glove.
