How Does Your Extrication Glove Stack Up?

We put nine well known extrication gloves to the test to see if any could hold up to the same flame test as the Pro-Tech 8™ X+R. The results speak for themselves!

The Pro-Tech 8™ X+R puts other extrication gloves to shame.


Don’t settle for an inferior glove. With the Pro-Tech 8™ X+R Extrication glove, not only do you get superior cut and puncture resistance because they’re made with Dupont™ Kevlar®, but you also get heat and flame resistance! Our X+R Extrication gloves are SFI certified and tested for melt and flame resistance for use in the racing industry. All of this at a price so reasonable it will surprise even your quartermaster.

Why the TYPE of Leather Matters

Pro-Tech 8 uses Goat or Kangaroo skin in all of our Structural Firefighting Gloves. Why? Good question!

Tensile Strength! Check out this chart that highlights the difference between different types of leather.

For a glove that needs ultimate dexterity as well as toughness and water/fire resistance the best leathers for the job are Kangaroo or Goat.
