On the Scene Reviews: FoxFire Illuminating Grip Wrap

-Our blog, On Scene with TheFireStore & The FireGeezer Blog are working together doing a review program of products we think you'll benefit from hearing an inside perspective on. -

Today we are posting the second part of a 3-part series of field-testing the FoxFire Illuminating safety products. Last week we brought you the results of the active testing of the All-In-One-Coating Kit  done by the Stafford County (Virginia) Fire & Rescue Department. Today we bring you the findings of the Illuminating Grip Wrap product


The Foxfire Illuminating Grip Wrap was applied to a Halligan bar. The grip wrap was easily applied but was not self-adhesive, so we used an adhesive tape for securing the ends. One roll of Grip Wrap is required for each tool in order to provide an adequate gripping area.

The grip-wrap is available in several colors but we only used the one that we were provided with.
As did the paint-on kit, the grip wrap held the illuminating charge throughout the exercise.

After several days of testing and usage, the grip wrap held up better than the All-In-One paint which had chipped off in a few spots. The grip wrap worked well and gave a secure grip to the bar.

Next week we review the Illuminating Helmet Band .
