Due to popular demand, Nokona is bringing back one of its most recognizable series: Banana Tan! Its supple yet sturdy cowhide was first developed by Nokona in the 1970's. Now, a new generation can enjoy the soft yet sturdy feel and quicker break-in period of the Banana Tan Fastpitch Series. Made with a new deep-pocket and Nolera Composite Padding, this glove is sure to impress today's best players. Nolera Composite Padding provides improved playability and makes for a glove lighter. And if that wasn't enough, Nokona incorporated their enhanced Ristankor Closure System. Originally developed in the 1950's, the Ristankor is now made with Velcro to secure the hand in the glove while allowing for an easier break-in. The new Banana Tan Fastpitch Series is the perfect combination of the traditional Nokona look and feel, with improved design and new technology to meet the demands of today's top players. With a closed web and closed back, this 12.50 inch pattern is ideal for infielders and outfielders. Nokona has built a reputation for providing the highest quality gloves, which are made right here in the USA!
