Best Extrication Glove Options

Need a new pair of extrication gloves? Some of our best options are detailed below, so you’re sure to find gloves that meet your needs.

"These gloves actually allow for good dexterity. I could actually tie complex knots with these gloves on, making them great for training and passing of skills testing as well as improved safety during fire scenes since you can feel what you are doing." -Fly, UT

Featuring a newly designed, multi-layer construction, the Pro-Tech 8 Fusion Structural / Wildland Firefighting and Extrication Gloves are amazingly lightweight, flexible, and comfortable. Far surpassing the strict protective and performance requirements mandated by the NFPA 1971 Standard – 2013 Edition, the gloves maximize your “gloves-on capability” for a variety of fire-ground tasks, including structural, wildland, and extrication, resulting in the ultimate enhancement to hand safety.

"As a volunteer firefighter/EMT, I have used these gloves mostly when dealing with vehicle accidents, but they have also been useful during some work and training exercises as well. They are lightweight and well-constructed, making manual dexterity and personal protection a plus!" -Berlin, VT

The Ringers Extrication Gloves are designed specifically for auto extrication, and first responders universally praise these dexterous, puncture-and abrasion-resistant gloves. Featuring anatomically designed palm pads and reflective Schoeller padded knuckles, the gloves’ elastic cuffs easily keep out debris, such as glass.

"Most comfortable extrication gloves I have worn to date. The protective ridges are a major plus." –TX

The HexArmor EXT Rescue 4013 Extrication Gloves are exactly what first responders need: adaptable, versatile, and agile gloves that can be trusted. Featuring high-grip TP-X reinforcement and advanced impact-protective technology, you can count on your hands being protected from sharp edges thanks to the level-5 cut-resistance technology on the palms. Additionally, the gloves’ Hi-Vis color schemes augment visual awareness.

Customer Favorites: The Top Three Most Popular Suspenders at TheFireStore

Finally ready to get that new pair of suspenders? We’ve got a lot of options, but the three detailed below are your brothers’ and sisters’ favorite picks.

Please note: The sizing information included in this blog and on our website is approximate; please be sure to consider your body’s unique proportions prior to selecting the size you order.

Featuring heavy-duty elastic straps constructed of top grain and black leather, the eight-point Boston Leather Fireman’s Suspenders, 1 ½-inch suspenders are sewn and riveted at all stress points, one of which includes a non-rusting ring. They are strong enough to hold turnout pants because of two 1 ½-inch adjustable straps with roller buckles. The suspenders come in two sizes: regular, which is for individuals standing up to 6’1”, and x-large, which is geared toward individuals standing 6’2” and taller.

The strong, extremely comfortable Honeywell Morning Pride 8 Point Dyna-Fit Suspenders feature standard circle hardware on the front and back; however, they are without mid-back hardware, a unique feature that allows increased flexibility and a less-restricting fit. The suspenders are available in three sizes:

  •         short: designed for heights up to 5’9”
  •         regular: designed for heights between 5’10” and 6’1”
  •         long: designed for heights of 6’2” and taller

The suspenders are available in blue with red elastic straps, and its two-tone Scotchlite trim is available in lime or orange.

The non-stretch Lion EZH H-back Quick Adjust Suspenders offer a number of useful features, some of which include shoulder padding for added comfort and durable, metal loops that allow for easy attachment and adjustment. The EZH H-back Quick Adjust Suspenders must be used in conjunction with the Super Deluxe Pants in order to achieve proper fit and performance.

For individuals standing between 5’10” and 6’2”, the 42-inch regular size is easily adjustable and can comfortably fit these heights. For anyone standing over 6’2” or with a waist measuring over 40 inches, the 48-inch size is recommended. For heights measuring less than 5’10” or with a smaller pants size, the 36-inch size is a good choice.

“Through Triumph and Tragedy – 50 Years of the F.D.N.Y. Pipes & Drums” DVD

Through Triumph and Tragedy: 50 Years of the F.D.N.Y. Pipes & Drums” is a fascinating documentary that chronicles the 50-year history and legacy of the world-renowned bagpipe band of the Fire Department of the City of New York (F.D.N.Y.), currently in-stock and ready-to-ship from TheFireStore.

Formed in 1962, the F.D.N.Y. Pipes & Drums band was created as a way for firefighters to celebrate their Irish heritage; it has since become one of the most important institutions in the F.D.N.Y. Fittingly, in the wake of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, they made it their mission to play every funeral and memorial service for the 343 members of the F.D.N.Y. that perished while valiantly trying to save others. Their dedication turned them into a globally recognized organization that stood as a symbol of freedom and honor. 

Featuring personal, candid interviews with both charter and newer members of the band, the documentary is 1 hour and 43 minutes in duration and is narrated by retired F.D.N.Y. firefighter and character actor Jack McGee. F.D.N.Y. Chief of Department Edward Kilduff put it best: “The F.D.N.Y. Pipes & Drums are the heart and soul of the fire department.”

To view a short trailer, take a look at the video below:
