Elk Defender 3.0

Firefighter gloves according to EN 659:2003+A1:2008

 

The ELK DEFENDER 3.0, which can hardly be surpassed in wearing comfort, combines the tactile sensitivity of a leather glove, which is so important for technical assistance, with the excellent properties of a textile firefighter's glove for fire fighting - namely minimal shrinkage without hardening of the materials used. The special suppleness of the processed elk leather as well as the unique glove cut guarantee fatigue-free working with optimal tactility. In the ELK DEFENDER (long) model with extra long leather cuff, the generous entry width guarantees that the glove can be easily put on over the operational jacket.
