Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Archery protective gloves prevent injury to an archer’s hands and fingers. There are two types. Shooting gloves, worn on the hand that draws the bowstring, keep an archer’s fingers from getting irritated and sore from repeated draws and are the most popular type of protective glove. They feature thicker padding on the inside of the fingers, usually leather, which both protects the fingers and keeps the glove from wearing down too quickly. Beginners should look for a glove that’s comfortable with plenty of finger padding and that doesn’t need to be broken in. Hand guards, worn on the hand that grips the bow, prevent injury from the arrow shaft or fletches during release and are used mainly with bows that have no arrow rest. These are stiff and use thicker leather or plastic to shield the hand and thumb.
