HIRZL gloves earn recognition from 2013 Golf Digest Hot List

HIRZL, the leading specialist for high performance sports gloves, is pleased to announce that its innovative line of kangaroo and cabretta leather golf gloves are included in the prestigious 2013 Golf Digest Hot List for gloves. The Hot List is the annual process that arrives at the most comprehensive ranking of the best new gloves in golf. The HIRZL SOFFFT™ Flex won a silver award and was one of the top gloves tested in the premium category.

"We are honored by Golf Digest's recognition in golf gloves," said Steve Gray, Vice President of HIRZL North America. "The judging panel for the Hot List includes some of the industry's leading experts as well as the everyday golfer. For HIRZL to be recognized right alongside the best-known brands is great testament to our technology, innovation and performance."

"Having been in the marketplace for only 30 months, HIRZL's product line doesn't yet have the full retail distribution or huge marketing budget of our competition yet we more than held our own with the major brands," stated Gray. "Across the entire spectrum of Hot List glove testing HIRZL is the only niche glove company to have placed this high. We are thrilled that our innovation and performance has been so highly recognized by the testers."

The HIRZL SOFFFT™ Flex glove is the ultimate cabretta leather performance glove. All SOFFFT™ Flex gloves are hand-crafted and are produced with the highest quality Platinum Cabretta undergoing no less than 72 separate manufacturing steps including HIRZL's proprietary tetra tanning process. The result is the industry's softest, longest lasting performance and best perspiration resistance cabretta glove on the market today.

HIRZL, headquartered in Switzerland, with North American operations based in Granbury, TX, is a leading specialist for high performance sports gloves. HIRZL's focus is solely on gloves with products specifically designed for golf and cycling, which is in contrast to many sports manufacturers with wide ranges of products spanning equipment, shoes and fashion. HIRZL's gloves are designed with the latest scientific, technical and ergonomic mechanics data on how sports equipment is used on the hands.

HIRZL uses exclusive GRIPPP™ technology in their kangaroo leather TRUST Series of golf gloves that provide demonstrably better grip in dry and wet weather over 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 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.
