9. Under Armour Combat III Football Gloves
9 on our top ten best overall football gloves is the Under Armour Combat III Football Glove. This is the 4th and last Under Armour glove to appear on this list, and for good reasons. Extra wrist support is exerted at your convenience, with a removable Power Strap. Under Armour’s patented ArmourMesh is un-doubtfully durable and lightweight. Lightweight is key when you perform in this glove, and even though it’s made from a thicker material, its still durable.
Sweat is wicked away from the body with UA’s signature Moisture Transport System. For those customers seeking protection, the UA Combat III’s palm is highly abrasion- resistant with added protection from the patented DuraTack material. This specific glove, the UA Combat III Full-Finger Football Glove, is mainly targeted for a lineman’s usage. The streamlined finger padding on top of the hand is thin, but effective – custom molded, allowing for better range of mobility under protection. Protecting your QB from the rush?… No problem, these gloves have pass-blocking palm padding added into the protection features for Offensive Linemen.
Customers and reviewers have had mixed feelings about the design of this glove – many think the colors are limited and coded poorly. Unlike the UA Combat IIs and all other lineman football gloves, the Combat IIIs do not have full padding on the back of the hand, which is almost completely essential for linemen. The glove is a snug fit with perforations in the fingers, allowing for breathability. Like all the other top ten football glove picks, including the Nike Vapor Fly Receiver Football Gloves, to meet the convenience of all football players, the Under Armour Combat III Football Gloves meet the regulations and specifications of the NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment) for NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations), NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) standards.
