The Quest for the Three-Finger Glove

I’m going to continue taking archery lessons (when my schedule permits) so I decided to invest in a glove to make it easier on my fingers.

Simple, right? Not if you don’t wear leather.

I found three gloves I would consider.

Glove one only came in size large. (Really, people?)

Glove two is 100% latex and I’m not sure how irritating that might be.

Glove three…I wanted glove three. It got good reviews (as did the other two) and someone even wrote a blog post about it. It was available from the UK and I needed to see if the shipping charges were worth it so I put it into the online shopping cart and searched for the US among the destinations.

It wasn’t there. I saw every country on the planet listed except mine. Completely perplexed, I emailed the store for help. Their reply:

Thank you for your email.

Unfortunately due to the changes in legislation regarding the import and exports of goods to and from the United States we are at present unable to send any goods to the US.

We are hoping that legislation will be tweaked slightly given the number of businesses that are now in the same position as ourselves and struggle to ship to the US. Until this time however there is no possibility to have the goods sent to your address.

I didn’t expect this. I REALLY didn’t expect this.

So, until things get back to normal, can anyone recommend a synthetic glove?

    I’m afraid it’s only going to get worse. You might try a golf shop. Good luck!

      Interesting idea, thanks!
