These firefighting gloves are manufactured using Cowhide 100% top grain leather, 1.1-1.2 thickness. This material is dye fast, water & chemical resistant. The inner lining is warp knitted, 100% Dupont Kevlar, tested & approved to EN388, this works in conjunction with the PU waterproof inner membrane. In terms of cuffing, we have used an undyed Nomex/Kevlar blend, in a rib construction. We have added a small percentage of elastane for additional grip to the wrist and shape recovery. The fingers, palm and knuckles are all reinforced for extra durability. The thread use is 100% Kevlar.
The outer shell is a pre curved hand and finger shape, for added comfort, better dexterity, and less hand fatigue
Inset thumb to ensure tunic compatibility
The waterproof membrane is heat bonded to a Kevlar knitted lining, the membrane is then sewn into the tops of each finger and the thumb to ensure no pull-out and 100% lining retention
The cuffing is double folded for added protection to the wrist area, all with double sewn seams
The high density stitch counts 5-6 stitches per cm to help keep hand shape, with double stitching on all re-enforcement areas
