    Default Eska Firefighting Gloves

    I am considering new gloves, and was wondering who all has tried these, and what they thought of them.

    I have a had a pair for about 2 weeks now, and over all I like them. They feel like they offer a good amount of protection but still have good dexterity. And with this Georgia heat they seam to be breaking in more every day. Only issue I have had so far was getting them on with wristlets when wet, but it was an extreme condition and I have no doubt once they are broken in it won't be a problem.

    And if you need somewhere to buy them from, All Hands had them to me in about 3 days.

    I've had a pair for over a year now. I love mine. Best fitting glove with extreme dexterity without the reduction in protection. Very sturdy, 3D fingers, with gripping material on the ends. I have the gauntlet type. They are a bit tough to get on when your hands are wet, but that's with most gloves. You also do not get fatiuge where your fingers bend.

    No, combat money bought me a house.

    Actually, the VA sent me a check for being a combat veteran....$40.....I framed it.
