Thanks for the invite brother! - Yes I do own quite a few pairs of ProTech8's. Myself and a few of my Instructors found them online for a good price and I purchased 9 sets for me alone - Probably about the same time you changed the styling/construction.
Great first in glove - phenomenal dexterity, but the older versions don't hold up very well to abuse so I've worn through most of the pairs I own. I like a tight fit and also found they're difficult to get back on once wet. None the less I'm still a fan and promote them in the Firefighter Rescue/Survival and Rapid Intervention classes I teach.
