Whether you’ve read Dune or not, you’ve been influenced by it. There’s dusty evidence of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi space epic on everything from Star Wars to Harry Potter. The upcoming film adaptation of the novel by director Denis Villeneuve, whose work includes titles as disparate as Blade Runner 2049 and Sicario, is one of the most anticipated movies of the year. (Dune‘s rep will draw out all of nerdom, Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya will bring in everyone else.)
Dune takes place on a desert planet called Arrakis, where savvy survivalists wear a special piece of kit called a stillsuit that filters and recycles its wearer’s moisture — sweat and all — to make drinking water. Thanks to recently revealed set photos from Vanity Fair and an eagle-eyed Reddit user, we know that part of this futuristic survival suit is none other than Oakley’s Factory Pilot Glove.
Here on Earth, Oakley makes the Factory Pilot Glove with goatskin leather, an unmistakable knuckle guard and Unobtanium-enhanced fingers for improved grip. The gloves are all-purpose, serving mountain bike and motorcycle riders as well as members of the military; they also go by the name SI Assault Gloves. You’ll need the rest of the suit to get them to purify your hand sweat, but, for now, you can pick up a pair for any spring riding you plan on doing (or some anticipatory cosplay).
