Seen the new level 3 gloves, much better than anything else I have seen, lot more dexterity than others on offer, around the $120 a pair mark, the kind of thing you have per BA set not per person!!

Have to agree, look funky too!

I heard they are a bit of a mix, good for structural use, but not quite as annoying as the thick structural gloves are.  E.G - Still flexible and you can still actually use your hands and not think you have an Anvil tied to them..

So much stuff to play with on the CFB course...... A couple of the MFS guys had Lion gloves on trial. Very comfortable, and you could actually do things with your fingers (within reason).

However they are no-where near as substancial as the CSI style gloves recommended at the moment. One of the instructors recieved minors burns through the back of the glove.... he did stick his hand up in the air when it happened though.

That in mind, Ill leave people to make their own descisions....

Great feedback Mike  :-D

Maybe (I know this may be logical .... sorry) CFS or 'someone' could create an area (webpage) where brigades could visit to look at PPE and Equipment reviews - this would allow people to make comments and also look at the research undertaken and prevent hours of unsolicited, uneducated and BS comments on PPE and Equipment.

Would also be handy for all to know the standards and see what prospective equipment is being trailed, evaluated or looked at.

This is exactly the thing we are happy to have on SA Fire Fighter. We want people to become regular equipment reviewers.

Once we have a few reviews we will create a section on the site as a one stop area for all sorts of information....

Have a look here - http://www.safirefighter.com/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=53&topic=184.0

Even short well thought out opinion reviews are welcome. We are setting up a system to allow for really easy submission of your review - more info coming soon.
