The Navy Clothing and Textile Research Facility NCTRF contracted with Dynamic Corp., Rockville, Md., to develop a dual purpose firefighters glove for both crash-rescue and structural firefighting duties. This new re-designed glove eliminates the need for firefighters to maintain two distinct sets of handwear. This report contains information relating to design characteristics of the gloves, compiled test data of user evaluations, and overall conclusions. NCTRF has recommended that this new structuralproximity glove be introduced into the supply system.
