Thanks. Pooling the order seemed to be cool with Wiley X when I mentioned it. I'll poll my other pilots and see if anyone is interested. I have a feeling they won't be, unfortunately.I teach a ground school glass at Whiting and just about every time as a class they discuss their glove order. Pretty sure that's how they work the whole more than 4 pairs per order.
I also have seen the other brand of gloves once. They did seem much sturdier but I don't remember the manufacturer either. Also, a while back our AMSO(Cookie) said he was working with Wiley X because the quality was so shitty on the gloves and they were going to make some changes. Maybe that's paying off. Will ask him if I see him around.
