Extrication gloves

So, does anyone here use specific extrication gloves? (as opposed to structural firefighting gloves)

What kind? Do you like them?

I want to get a pair for my son, who is almost done taking firefighter 1. From some quick searching, looks like the most common gloves are Ringers and/or Shelby?

Thank you for any input!

I use these - http://www.ringersgloves.com/Fire-Rescue. Use to wear a pair of latex gloves under the long cuff version but now the Barrier One is my choice. Its my hands and my health for me and my family. What is $60-70? Here is also a good choice by mechanix - http://www.mechanix.com/safety/extrication-leather.

Let me change that...

These are what I'm thinking about, and Gall's seems to have them at a good price:

Over the years, I've had the chance to wear a wide variety of gloves for extrication work.

My truck also serves as a medium duty rescue and does a decent amount of extrication work.

This is what my department currently issues. http://www.galls.com/shelby-xtrication-gloves

They are pretty nice gloves and seem to get the job done, but I mostly wear them during training. To be honest, the glove I wear during "cut jobs" are my structural firefighting gloves.

This is the structural glove I'm currently issued. http://www.thefirestore.com/store/pr...oductId/13188/
These are the best gloves that I've ever had the chance to use.

We have very good structural gloves (I forget the brand), but they are hot and thick and during extended work not involving fire they get very sweaty and uncomfortable.

I am looking at those Shelbys.

Thanks for the response!

Our dept, whoever works the tools normally use their good gloves. Others wear heavy nitrile underneath, buy by the dozen hardware store, leather gloves; we throw the leather away with the nitrile when/if they get any blood.

I wear these with nitrile gloves underneath. I know changing out nitrile gloves everytime, that I'm wearing an intact pair, where as the barrier ones I used to have eventually got a few small holes in them.

I see you already decided but I will add my 2cents anyway.

Having used several different manufacturers and styles of gloves these are without a doubt my all time favorite.

Great dexterity, super tough and very comfortable.

BTW, OP congrats to your son on finishing his FF1

He just opened them up about an hour ago. A little tight... from what I've read, that can be common with that type of glove. He loves them though! He is tired of wearing the heavy structural gloves for everything.

Another vote for the ringers with the long cuff. They dont get slippery if you get Hurst tool fluid on them and groken glass wont puncture them. The fingers are thin enough you can grab thin material, and the rough texture grip pads are like sand paper allowing a firm grip on anything from glass to sheet metal.

Whatever you buy, it should have an NFPA label on it. Most services will require that any personal protective equipment be manufactured to the NFPA standard, and that it be certified and labelled as such. Look for the label.

I use generic mechanics style with nitrile ems gloves underneath. I will absolutely throw my gloves away if they become "nasty". I'm not immune to losing one either so I hate to spend the $$.

I use ringers and they do work well. However on occasions a couple of my guys were sliced right through the glove. You still need to be cautious. Its a tough balance between dexterity and protection. Those Kangaroo gloves do look good.
