Collection: Protective Gear

Safety is of paramount importance in archery. The right protective gear ensures archers are well shielded and safe during their activities. Archery gloves and finger tabs are crucial equipment to safeguard the hand and fingers from the high tension of the bowstring. Armguards prevent direct contact of the string with the forearm, thus minimizing the risk of painful injuries. Therefore, investing in high-quality protective gear is essential to sustain the joy and enthusiasm for archery in the long term. Only with proper protection can archers fully focus on the precision and enjoyment of this fascinating sport.

Protective Gear by Bearpaw Products
Our products are manufactured in Pakistan (Karachi). Our partner in Karachi places great emphasis on consistent quality and good working conditions for employees. Production staff work 8-hour shifts with sufficient breaks. Additionally, our partner provides insurance coverage for employees and their families, ensuring secure incomes through employment. The local wages are three times higher than the regional average, highlighting our commitment to fair employment practices. These aspects, often taken for granted elsewhere, are exceptional in Pakistan, where low job security, low wages, and lack of worker rights prevail. Each employee has been carefully selected for their expertise, reflecting in the high-quality craftsmanship, consistent quality, and elegant appearance of our products.

Furthermore, our partner holds "B Corp" and "BSCI" certifications! "B Corp" is an international certification that recognizes companies for their social and environmental impacts by the non-profit organization "B Lab". The goal of "BSCI" is to improve working conditions worldwide, adhering to a specific code of conduct within the supply chain.

Each of our products is handmade. Whether it's a archery glove, armguard, or quiver, there's a person behind each product performing their work with love and passion. Our partner's team of 30 to 40 employees is dedicated to our products, from sample making to the final product. Some employees have been with us for up to 35 years, mastering their craft.

Materials for Our Protective Gear
We place special emphasis on selecting and sourcing materials for our leather and textile products. The right use of materials ensures sustainability and top-quality results. To introduce sustainable, high-quality, and well-thought-out products to the market, we exclusively use "REACH-compliant" materials. Products and articles are considered REACH-compliant if they meet all conditions of the EU chemicals regulation. We strive to use as many natural materials as possible. For example, most of our quivers are lined with leather rather than synthetic materials. All our materials are sourced locally, considering short transportation routes. The seams of our products are sewn with "German Gütermann thread", known for its exceptional durability.

Archery Gloves for Archery
A archery glove is crucial in archery to safely and comfortably draw the bowstring. It's worn on the drawing hand, protecting the three middle fingers: index, middle, and ring fingers.

Archery Gloves for Beginners
Beginners should opt for soft leather or textile gloves. The soft material allows them to develop a good feel for the bowstring from the outset and improve continuously (e.g., Dynamic or Easy).

Archery Gloves for Archers
Experienced archers have a choice. It's important that the glove fits well and provides reliable protection. For higher draw weights, we recommend thicker and more robust leather for optimal protection (e.g., the Dark or DOA archery glove).

Archery Gloves for Children and Youth
In general, children and youth should start with soft and supple leather or textile gloves (e.g., Easy archery glove). However, we recommend children also practice shooting without gloves at lighter draw weights. This allows them to develop a better feel for the string and shooting. Light draw weights pose no risk of injury.

Armguards for Archery
Injuries from the bowstring during shooting are common and can lead to painful abrasions. An armguard is crucial to minimize these risks. Available in various designs, it provides short protection for the forearm or longer protection for the elbow and upper arm.

Armguards for Beginners
For beginners, we recommend longer armguards that cover both the forearm and upper arm. This ensures protection during imperfect shots. Opt for a closure that's easy to handle, allowing full focus on training (e.g., Dynamic or Easy Long armguard).

Armguards for Archers
Experienced archers may prefer short armguards covering only the forearm. Choose from modern to traditional designs, ensuring both function and aesthetics seamlessly integrate with other Bearpaw Products equipment.

Armguards for Children and Youth
For children and youth, longer armguards are ideal, providing protection for both the forearm and upper arm (e.g., Easy Kids or Easy Youth armguard). Protection is crucial for young athletes, ensuring enjoyment remains the focus. Opt for the Dynamic armguard with flexible fabric, making it easy to put on and take off.

Finger Tabs
A finger tab offers an alternative to the traditional archery glove. Ultimately, the choice depends on personal preference. However, we recommend beginners start with a archery glove. For more information, consult our blog post for a helpful decision guide.

How Does a Finger Tab Work?
Typically made of leather, the finger tab is specially structured to provide a surface for the three fingers (ring, middle, and index fingers) pulling the bowstring. A separate area and plastic separation between the middle and index fingers support precise nocking and releasing of the arrow. Available in various sizes, designs (right or left-hand), and materials, you can choose the finger tab that best suits your preferences.
