The TMAX Gloves are made from a blend of comfortable, pliable and durable material--hence giving it that dexterity right away when you can't afford to waste time "breaking them in". The glove's goatskin palm helps to provide control and ease of movement when using ropes and hoses. The cowhide body helps to add soft durability to the palm.
Each of the finger forchettes are made of goatskin which allow for better finger dexterity and gripping power giving you less thumb fatigue. The knuckle pads are goatskin, too which help to pad and protect your knuckles and provides extra air pockets for heat and compression protection.
The TMAX Glove also boast the Pyrotech moisture barrier--which basically speaking is a barrier that provides breathability, keeps you dry with a waterproof feature, and aids the glove in resistance to body fluids, chemicals, and blood.
Of course, all these great features add up to mean that it goes well above the NFPA 1971 Standards for Structural Firefighting Gloves.
If you're looking for the perfect way to keep your hands safe from heat, hazards and fatigue while firefighting, then you need to own a pair of Honeywell TMAX Gloves.
