fully custom. made to order. finest leathers.
Our gloves are crafted with the finest care to every detail. Starting with the quality of our leather. We only use the best leather in the industry, 100% KIP leather, and offer 2 grades. Our leather is softer, tackier, more pliable and more durable than our competitors.
All leather is not created equally. There are reasons why leather comes in a variety of price points. We painstakingly source only the top grain leathers from select regions. Our leather quality is second to none. Other glove companies rarely use KIP leather so when they do, their sources are generally less reliable OR they use quick processed KIP which lowers the leather quality. And when we say 100% we mean it. No low grade welting or binding. Not just KIP liners or palms, 100% top grain, pro grade KIP.
We offer 2 shapes. The RP-OT8 is our traditional shape. It is versatile with a deep pocket. A tried and true shape for most fielders. Our RP-SW11 and features a different close pattern. When shut, this shape features a nice deep pocket but flattens out for quick transfers. More geared for middle infielders but depending on size, quite versatile. This shape features a minimal welting pattern.
Your Raven Performance glove will come to you stiff. Most factory break-ins actually harm the leather and limit the ability to develop your own pocket. We encourage you to break in your glove the old-fashioned way to create a true extension of your hand.
While we work on a graphical glove builder showcasing all our models and options, please design your glove below using the simple drop down menus below. This will simply give us an idea of what you’re looking for. The builder is not yet inclusive of everything we can do. Please note anything special or not in our menus in the “message” box, such as flags, wing colors, web designs, wingtip, snake skin, wrist liner materials, etc. We’re working hard to get a visual builder up.
You will receive a mock-up with your purchase order and we’ll work with you until it’s your perfect glove. We thank your for allowing for some back and forth. We can do just about anything so if you have an idea or a picture or screenshots, we can go from there as well. It may take a little more time up front but our fast turnaround and unmatched quality makes it all worth it. We hope you consider joining the RAVEN team.
