The Cortex is possibly our most versatile, resilient and functional glove to date. Made for multiple terrains and endeavors, they’re performance detailed, extremely durable, supremely comfortable and perfectly fitted at the wrist.

Three kinds of Pittards® leathers are used:

- Palm side uses Keratan™ goatskin. It’s treated to increase the abrasion protection and durability of the skin with it’s unique “etched diamond” surface, which is bonded to the leather’s fiber structure. It allows the leather to retain flexibility and maximum abrasion resistance.

- Top of hand uses Armortan® goatskin. It’s supreme abrasion resistance is achieved when the fibril bundles in the leather are encased with ceramic “armor plates” without compromising the feel and fit of the leather.

- Palm heel padding, binding and pull strap uses African Hair sheep performance leather.

All leathers are additionally treated with a WR100X finish. They are water and perspiration resistant - the UK tanning process permanently protects the leather fibers, both limiting water uptake and helping reduce damage from perspiration.

Cortex gloves are made in collaboration with our friends at Triple Aught Design – an employee-owned San Francisco based company committed to making high quality gear and apparel in the USA for the capable individual.

As with all Philleywood gloves, they’re handmade in California with meticulous attention to detail. We inspect each pair before numbering and adding to the batch.
