    Default Glove Corp. / Blazefighter glove

    Greetings all,

    As with alot of other Departments we ordered the Pro-tech gloves with our new turnout gear. And as with alot of other Depts. they are on backorder. My vendor has offered the Blazefighter in place of the PT's and at the same price. I have never heard of this glove, anyone use these yet? Are they new? Are they comparable to the PT's? Any advice wouold be great.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    I tried a pair on at the local fire school. As far as fit, they were as good or better than the pro-techs. That's about as far as I can help you though as I went with the PT for exactly this reason....Lack of info

    If The Glove Corp. would learn how to market their products they might be able to sell them. Info is very hard to come by on the Blazefighter. They may be better than the Pro-Tech and they may be made in the USA but who the hell knows. People are not going to buy a glove that is not marketed or that they have never heard of.

    If the pro-tech's were made here they would be twice the price and half the quality. American Manufacturing sucks. I guess you don't own a tv now do you, cause I can not even think of one except old school Heathkit's that were made in the USA.

    Ok, so my committee met and we discussed these gloves. I made a call to a buddy that is a salesperson (not affiliated with the glove supplier) and asked about them. I was told that these are actually comparable to the PT's in fit, performance and durability. They have good dexterity with using all types of tools. At the end of the night, we donned a pair did a dunk test. We started with a simple dunk up to the wrist area below the cuff. Held them in for 5 minutes, no water leakage. After the 5 minutes we resorted to dunking the entire glove. Again for 5 minutes we had the glove submerged for 5 minutes. After that is was left on a counter to dry. I returned the next day and found the glove was dry inside and out, soft & flexible as if it was new.

    Time will tell, but so far I'm a little impressed.

    I want to state that I have no affiliation with Glove Corps nore am I a salesman.

    Thanks for the follow up Steve. I liked the pair I tried on but knew nothing about them. I may try them out when my PTs wear out
