    1st review

    These gloves are soft and very pliable. They don't feel like they have been placed in concrete two days after a fire.

    I have a pair of these, among others. They seem to be good. Soft and wearable, even padding that doesn't bunch up. I haven't worn them enough to see if they come off without pulling inside out. So far they are great.

    Overall decent gloves, I guess as good as firefighting gloves can be. Have never had a problem with them becoming stiff after use or anything like that. Overall a decent product.

    MY NEW BEST FRIENDS!! I just got a pair of these and they are soooo worth the money. I got mine right before Search and Rescue Class and I was able to perform my duties alot easier than I could have without these gloves. As a girl it's hard to find gloves that fit. Well not any more. I'll never be without my Shelby Blue Koala Gloves!!

    These are pretty decent gloves, the only problem I've had is since I wear Smalls that there's slightly less dexterity due to the stitching being so close together. Other then that they're good gloves.

    great glove for the person with small hands. Comfortable and moveable.

    Absolutely love these gloves. Soft and pliable, even after a few structure fires and runs thru the washing machine. But the biggest selling point for me is the fingers do not pull out of the gloves when you take your hands out.

    Good gloves, but for someone like me who has small hands, even the extra small do not come close to fitting.

    My first pair of gloves and they work very well....they keep my hands cool when the times get hot the only problem is putting them back on from the inside when my hands are sweaty

    Overall Great glove. My only problem is getting them back on when you are sweating, or the gloves are already wet. They seem to be hard to get over the widest part of your hand.

    I absolutely love these gloves! They fit great, are soft and very comfortable! They are very durable yet still give your hands some flexibility! I highly recommend them!
