Explanation:
A low profile fit, in this case, means that the glove does not stick out too far. In other words the glove is thin. Remember that thin can be relative. A neoprene glove is naturally going to be thicker than a dress gloves and thinner than a baseball glove.

The same concept applies to the pads that US Football players wear. Some of them are very thick and stick out from the body. While other versions of the pads are thinner and do not stick out as far. Helmets, too, can have a low profile.

In this case, 'fit' is how the item is made to be worn and does not need to be included in French in a glove ad.
