HJ GLOVE. . .  The golf glove specialist
When Howard Jeon founded HJ Glove in 1976, his vision was quite simple: to make the best golf glove in the world. His emphasis on quality and durability are two factors that still remain a top priority at HJ Glove today. HJ Glove uses only the finest hand-selected cabretta leather and other high-performance materials such as micro-fiber leather, super-duty fleece and breathable mesh. Using the latest technology, HJ Glove creates golf gloves that provide maximum comfort and a superb fit. Having all manufacturing production done at HJ Glove’s own facility assures quality control and strict adherence to HJ Glove’s meticulous quality standards. HJ Glove has been specializing in golf gloves for over 30 years and continues to strive toward the vision of our founder, the finest golf glove in the world.
