    I currently use a pair of Ringers...but I am going back to deer skin leather. They seem to hold up better...

    Valeo and Hatch both make gloves with cut resistant full kevlar inner liners. So far the Valeo is holding up well for me.

    I too have the Valeo glove and another pair of ringers however I see a new glove on the firestore that can be used for both firefighting and extrication. Little pricey but would like to give them a try. I have a gym bag I carry on the truck when im on shift just to carry all the crap I couldnt fit in my gear pockets so this glove could make some space.

    I carry an extra pair of gloves for firefighting. A extra pair of socks and also a pair of extrication coveralls and gloves. My own personnel petzel Helmet for rope rescue along with my rope gloves. Also a container of powder gatorade to add to water for the long hot calls. A powerbar as well so if I get hungry during a call. THE REHAB TRUCK HAS NOTHING GOOD FOR US...
    In the winter I carry a sweater and touque. Its just a small gymbag I sit in the back with me. I dont put nothing in it that I would need in a hurry during the call as my Capt would not like me going through my bag when a handline needs pulled..
