Leather / Kevlar® Firefighter Gloves with Hi Vis (ETF309V5)
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 with Kevlar for extra durability. The thread used 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
