Without something, “as without hands” is a well-known and undeniable proverb. Perhaps only the integrity of the eyes is more important than the condition of the arms, hands, fingers of a fighter. Therefore, gloves are an important element of protective equipment in war. They can give out something, but this will definitely not cover all the needs in terms of quality and quantity. After all, gloves in a war zone, especially on the front lines, are consumables. I will share my thoughts and experience on the choice of gloves: tactical and household plan, which often intersects and mixes involuntarily in war.

Contacts with elements of weapons heated by firing, shells, fragments, just an open flame - all this promises burns to the hands. SHARDS. Ordinary good gloves made of dense fabric resist secondary fragments well. But there are those that hold small primary fragments, along with cuts. Fighter PMC "Wagner" in gloves. Donbass. Autumn 2022 (photo from open sources) I have no motivation to advertise specific models, brands of gloves. Moreover, with the current hype, it is pointless to recommend something specific. There is simply not much. Something imported branded - will not be. What we grab, we take. I will go over the general, conceptual aspects of the choice.
Issues of etiquette In the scene of Kitty and Levin's wedding, gloves are mentioned twice: "He saw that the sigh stopped in her chest and the small hand in a high glove holding the candle trembled." The father of the bride holds the crown high above her head "trembling with his hand in a three-button glove." The wedding takes place in the evening, "it's more beautiful" - as one of the guests puts it. Therefore, Kitty's dress is evening, and long gloves are supposed to go with it, which we see in the text.
