For Marine Corps Honor Guard personnel, our white sensitized gloves with textured rubber grippers on the fingers ensure a firm, secure grasp, whether you’re holding a rifle, saber, or flag staff. At the types of special ceremonies that call for an Honor Guard, even a minor slip-up can lead to a major dressing down. Take advantage of the extra gripping power of textured rubber to ensure your performance during these often solemn occasions is the very best it can be!
Marine Corps Uniform regulations also authorize the wear of sensitized gloves by some members of the United States Marine Band in those instances where white gloves are prescribed for wear during a performance. Specifically, the regulations state that “When white gloves are prescribed for ceremonial purposes appropriate instrumentalists may wear sensitized/modified gloves,” and then goes on to seemingly narrow down “appropriate instrumentalists” to woodwind players only, to wit: “When white gloves are prescribed, woodwind instrumentalists may wear sensitized gloves.”
