Power gloves were thin, energized gloves used by stormtroopers in hand-to-hand combat, usually while restraining prisoners. They worked by way of energized reactive fibers, similar to the fibers in crushgaunts, although to a far lesser degree due to the lack of Mandalorian iron in their construction. The fibers typically where constructed of metal compounds, mixed with electrically responsive biofibers, simulating the constricting effect of a muscle. Power gloves could many times be upgraded with armored pieces, or even magnets in the palms for engineering work.
