    1st review

    Provides excellent mobility and heat resistance.
    My hands were less fatigued during operations while using this glove.

    Loved them... they had great dexterity allowing easy rope work. very absortbent outer layer holds debris readily but still keep hands warm in subzero weather. the gloves held up for about a year.

    Great gloves and well worth the money. It's great to be able to put a glove on when it's wet.

    Just got a pair last week the new ones. Best gloves you can pull your hands out of your wet gloves and you can put them right back on. So much better than having to put the inside of gloves back into the fingers. I would tell eveyrone and every department to get them.

    Gloves fit well. However we will not let anyone on our department wear do to the fact that several in a neighboring department had the backs of their hands burnt in a training fire. Lucky for them it wasn't too bad. Also seen a demo at a UL testing lab and the material these gloves were made from melted at a low temp compaired to what they were suppose to be tested at. NOT A GLOVE I WOULD RECOMMEND!

    Best glove I think to feel things like you are only wearing a pair of leather work gloves minus the heat. Flexibility second to none.

    The best dexterity I've seen in a structural glove. It's actually possible to pick up a quarter off the sidewalk while wearing these gloves. The fabric does tend to tear around the fingertips after several months of use. The inside of the glove stays fairly dry compared to most other gloves I've used. My main problem is that the wristlets are a pretty snug fit, so it takes me a few extra seconds to get the gloves on and off.

    I absolutely love these gloves, they are nowhere near as bulky as the other firefighter gloves out there. They are extremely comfortable, and actually dry out pretty fast.

    i used to love these gloves, but i have seen them melt on peoples hands 2 times now. it just from the heat in a structure with no direct flame inpingement on the glove. blistered one guys hands real bad and the other guy just told me about his melting. mine started to melt at a structure, they shrunk on the inside they got so hot. but i have them in my gear still for rescue and wildland fires.

    I am a state fire instructor and have used them on numerous occassions and feel very good using them. I use them on training structure burns, Flammable liquids and gases, flashover container, and regular firefighting and have NOT had any bad experiences.

    As far as fit, feel and dexterity the Pro-Tech 8's are some of the best gloves I have worn in my 19 years in the fire service. I have not had any problems with heat coming through the gloves as I have read on other reviews. However, I have found one draw back in the design of the glove. We had responded to a structure fire and during extinguishment we had to handle some masonry walls that had collapsed. After we had completed the call, I had noticed that the masonry had torn holes through the thin brown leather lining on the palm of the glove. It has not affected the integrity of the glove or heat resistance on the fingers or palms. I have brought the issue to the manufactures attention with no response at this time. I guess this is the trade off for having a glove with better dexterity. Anxious to see the new model that is coming out from Pro-Tech.

    I love these gloves! Very flexible and they don't stiffen up as much as traditional structural gloves.

    I love this glove. Fantastic dexterity and incredibly comfortable. As a state fire instructor I had my last pair in dozens of fires and have had nothing but a positive experience with them.
