    Default Proper donning of gloves with wristlets

    When donning structural gloves with wristlets with a bunker coat that has wristlets without a thumb slot, do you have to pull the glove wristlets over those of the coat to ensure there is no exposed skin? Should you? Is there an NFPA requirement that discusses this? Has anyone been given a hard time about this at a practical test?

    roll the wristlet of the gloves over the edges of the glove. When you put the gloves on roll them down over the wristlets of the bunker coat. That way the glove wristlets will be over the coat wristlets. Thats how I did it before I had the thumbhole wristlets.
