  • Chiba Flame Fighter

    I've searched and found minimal stuff on this glove, so i wanted to ask if anyone here uses it and what they think? A few guys on my department have them and love them it seems, and i just tried a pair on earlier and was amazed at how comfortable and better feeling than my regular gloves they are....so anyone think i should drop the 100 bucks and get a pair?

    personally im not a big fan of them, ive seen them and tried them on..although i was very happy with the techtrade protech 8s heres a link...

      Thanks for the info....how do the gloves you recommend compare fit wise to the Flame Fighters? The price seems right but i really wanna try a pair on before getting them, i was just so impressed with the increased dexterity and easy fit of the flame fighters

        they fit good, better than the old pig skins..and just as you were impressed with the chibas i was very impressed with the protech 8s and their dexterity and i just recently was involved in some pump training and i was completely soaked(old ward lafrance leaked from everywhere) but the membrane between the layers on the protech kept my hands completely dry..i definitely think the protechs are the best thing going right now, in my opinion ofcourse

        oh and just to point out i havent worn the long cuff protechs, im only familiar with the short cuff

        and on a less practical note, the chibas are hideous

          I have the Chiba's ,the dexterity is great ,the cuff is horrible.
          I also noticed alot of hand sweat wearing these ,but the gloves kept my hands dry from external water sources
