LOS ANGELES, Nov. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ironclad Performance Wear Corporation (OTCBB:ICPW), the recognized leader in high-performance task-specific gloves and apparel, today introduced a line of technical performance gloves for outdoor sports enthusiasts featuring the popular and market-leading Realtree® camouflage pattern.

Earlier this year, Ironclad acquired a long-term license to produce a line of high-performance gloves using the Realtree AP camouflage pattern. Combining Ironclad's reputation as the leader in technical task-specific performance work glove design with the strength of the Realtree brand in the hunting market, Ironclad quickly secured commitments and orders from Bass Pro Shops, Gander Mountain and Dick's Sporting Goods to carry the gloves this Fall. Additional distribution points are also being secured.

"I've always said, the most important things a hunter must camouflage are his head and his hands. Those are the things that move the most and attract the most attention" said Bill Jordan, CEO and founder of Jordan Outdoor Enterprises, owner of the Realtree Outfitter brand.  "With these new Ironclad gloves, hunters are doing much more than simply camouflaging their hands; they're adding true performance to them. These gloves provide far more than just camo cover; they offer grip enhancement and hand protection like nothing hunters have had access to before."

Ironclad has developed a line of performance gloves, incorporating many of the advanced designs, technologies and materials perfected in other Ironclad models, with the Realtree camouflage pattern. 

"We are very honored that Ironclad was chosen by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises as an official licensee of Realtree performance gloves for the outdoor sports enthusiast market," said Ed Jaeger, founder and head of business development for Ironclad Performance Wear. "We expect that the marriage of Ironclad's market-leading expertise in design and development of performance gloves with the Realtree camouflage pattern will revolutionize the outdoor sportsman's experience."
