  • fire gloves turning inside out

    my fire dept has a bunch of gloves that after use you take the gloves off and you cant get them back on. Becouse the fingers pull out of the glove and the gloves are trash. what im asking is there a glove that dose not do that or is there a was to fix them. we are tired of wasteing money on gloves.

      Sounds like you have a unique problem. Maybe a bad batch of gloves. I would call the manufacturer and raise holy heill. You should be getting reimbursement checks coming in by the truckload. I've never heard of this happening before. That's just straight up crazy!!

        I think he means the liner turing inside out -- take your time taking them off - also always have a back up pair . Does this happen when they are completely soaked ?
        ?

          We had this problem in 1985, then we bought good gloves.

            We did as well and went to Shelby's and dropped fire dex.

                  If your gloves are doing this, two things are probably true:

                  1. You bought cheap gloves and now wish you hadn't.

                  2. Those gloves are trash and need to be replaced.

                  Like the others said, call the dealer and tell them what's happening. Take the refund money and get better gloves.

                    Yeah, everytime I have to be in a C-130 that thought goes through my mind.

                      This is not a unique problem to any one particular manufacturer. Some are just better than others. I have tried different gloves over the year and have finally found a pair I truly love to wear. I had a pair of Fire-Dex come apart the other day and have had Shelby's do it too. The worst in my personal experience, were the older American Firewear gloves. I am sure all manufacturers have bad batches or pairs. The new Glove Corp Blaze Fighters have been awesome. Good dexterity, hands stay dry and no signs of pull out.

                        The Fireman Vs were the worst for us. Being as they are crappy gloves in the first place, it didn't hurt my feelins to throw them all away and order everyone Shelbys.

                            We once had a Chief that always bought the cheapest gloves, and XXL so they would fit "everybody".
