Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves - Short Fingers SB02598A

Giving you protection that is specified to NFPA 1971-2013 and EN 659, Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves SB02598A are ideal for offering protection for structural firefighting. The gloves feature a three layer construction (outer shell, interlining, and lining) that ensures a greater level of protection for your hands.


The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves have been certified for structural firefighting by the American standard NFPA 1971-2013 and the European standard EN 659. This dual level of accreditation allows you to be secure in the knowledge that your gloves will give a good level of protection when dealing with fire and extreme temperatures.


Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves use nothing but the best materials to ensure that you are properly protected when using the gloves. The gloves include:

  • Outer Shell: Pyrohide leather
  • Interlining: Gore Crosstech membrane
  • Lining: Kovenex thermal barrier
  • Cuff: Nomex/Kevlar knitted wristlet
  • Thread: Sewn throughout with Nomex and Technora Thread

Pyrohide Shell

Pyrohide leather is exclusively manufactured in the UK by Southcombe and is ideal for resistance against heat, fire, water, salt-water, liquid chemicals (including sulphuric acid, hydrochloric acid, caustic soda, ethanol et cetera) and Man Made Mineral Fibres (MMMF). The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves utilise Pyrohide leather for the outer shell of the gloves, offering a great level of protection. Pyrohide is used by 48 out of the 61 fire brigades in the UK and retains tactile properties in dry or wet weather.

Crosstech Interlining

On top of a lining and a shell, the Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves feature an interlining that offers better protection against heat. The interlining of the glove is a Gore Crosstech insert that is resistant to pathogens and liquid penetration against blood and bodily fluids. The Crosstech membrane performs five times more efficiently than competitive polyurethane-based products. The interlining is chemically bonded to the lining, ensuring that they don't become inverted while in use.

Kovenex Lining

Kovenex is an inherently flame resistant blend on non-chemically treated performance fibres that provide outstanding heat-blocking. The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves utilise a Kovenex lining that is flexible, durable and offers cut resistance as well as heat resistance. Kovenex provides great levels of dexterity — no other thermal barrier offers as much heat protection while allowing these levels of dexterity.

Nomex/Kevlar Wristlet Cuff

The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves features an undyed knitted wristlet cuff that is manufactured from a mixture of Nomex and Kevlar. The cuff also features elastane and a Pyrohide leather vein patch, ensuring comfort and protection.

Design Features

Southcombe have carefully designed the Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves to ensure that you have a glove that performs excellently. Building on the design of earlier Firemaster models, this glove adds a complex 3D curved finger full fitting tailoring pattern. This new design is ideal for ensuring comfort and dexterity. The glove also features a digital Pyrohide leather patch that enhances your grip, even in wet conditions.


When you are dealing with extremely hot environments and fire, it is essential that you have gloves that you know can protect you. The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves have been certified by both NFPA 1971-2013 and EN 659, meaning that they are ideal for structural firefighting.

EN 659 is a standard that governs the general suitability of gloves for firefighting. The standard covers a range of factors including:

  • Burning behaviour
  • Convective heat resistance
  • Radiant heat resistance
  • Contact heat resistance
  • Heat resistance of the lining material
  • Heat shrinkage
  • Dexterity
  • Seam breaking strength
  • Time for glove removal

Sizing of the Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves - Short Fingers SB02598A

The Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves - Short Fingers are available in four different sizes in both lime and brown colours. To measure which size you need, please measure your dominant hand (whichever is larger) by making a fist and measuring the tape around the widest part (between your thumb and index finger). These gloves feature fingers and a thumb that are half an inch shorter than the regular Southcombe Firemaster 4 Classic Gloves — aside from this, all sizing is the same.

Size Measurement in Cm Measurement in Inches
Small 20.3cm 8 inches
Medium 22.9cm 9 inches
Large 25.4cm 10 inches
Extra Large 27.9cm 11 inches

If you fall between two different sizes, we would advise that you pick the larger pair for greater comfort. However, if you would like a tighter fit, the smaller should still be suitable. If you would like to view the original size of gloves, please click here.
