    Default Glove Holders

    How do all of you hold your gloves, like in your pocket, glove straps, anything like that. Just wondering because I have found that sometimes it takes me a long time to get my gloves out of my pockets.

    Thanks

    You know those Velcro glove straps they sell at The Fire Store? Yeah, I use one of those.

    I hold my left glove on my left hand and my right glove on my right hand... Pretty simple system and I don't usually have a problem with losing them.

    For Storage only, I take the chin strap of my helmet & run it across the back "bill" of my helemt then I tuck my gloves & my nomex under it.

    The 'beaner on my coat is reserved for my flashlight & rescue knife.

    BTW - I have a quick release buckle style chin strap. My guess is that this will work with the milwalkee strap too. Not sure about the standard "one piece" chin strap.

    Right glove in right cargo pocket, Left glove in left cargo pocket. Turn down the cuffs and let them hang out a little, when you need em, just slip your hands into them, pull them out of your pockets, snug em down, and go.

    One of the little key 'biners from Wal-Mart with the loops in my gloves on it. Works great. Also keeps them out of my pocket and easy to access.

    Structural gloves go in the right side pocket of my bunker coat, leather work gloves go in the right side cargo pocket of my bunker pants.

    I use glovestraps, They get on my hands faster that way. I used to do the whole pocket thing, but that takes way too long for me.

    there are the fancy french things caled pawqettes,they are pretty neat. they come pre attached to most gear and its like a little storage area for your gloves.
    I havent failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work.
