On Scene Review: Pro-Tech's I.C.E. Extrication Glove

 -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. -

The past two tours we have been testing Pro-Tech's I.C.E. Extrication Gloves and overall had good results with them.

"At first, the extra padding in the palm seemed to be a little too much. However after some use and break-in, the glove fits comfortably and the padding does allow for good grip. Also, it provides less vibration from tools such as a reciprocating saw to affect the hands."
- Lt. Talsey Cunningham

"Dexterity in the glove is not compromised, hydraulic couplings were easily connected and disconnected."
- Technician II Sean Seawell

"The elastic band in the cuff successfully prevents glass and small debris from entering the glove."
- Sgt. Eric Chenault

Overall, the glove takes a little getting used to, but it is well made and will definitely protect the wearer.
