    Gauntlet padding???

    Greetings Fetts,

    I'm seeking any and all info on padding for the inside of my ESB gauntlets? I have very thin forearms and my gauntlets are just too loose. I tried duck taping white foam to the inside top and bottom, but it looks a bit messy. Someone mentioned weather stripping with an adhesive back to it, but I'm not familiar with it. My left gauntlet is rather left side heavy due to the flamethrower. Anyone have a good balance solution to that problem as well? Any help on this would be most appreciated. Thanks!

    This may sound silly,
    Sponges!!!!
    I bought A pack of 6 sponges for $2.00
    The good news is they will be damp when you put them in.Overnight they dry and become hard.

    Yeah, I went to the local hardware store and found weather stripping, thick, black padding material. It didn't come with a sticky side for some reason, so I used my glue gun. It worked well.

    Anyone here tried Evostick to glue foam in place. We use it at work and its VERY effective.

    I snagged some small egg crate foam today at work. It seems to be about the right size. This was actually stuck inside a box for pading (FREEBIE).

    I've never heard of Evostick. What is it?

    I bought some thick foam from WalMart in the fabric department and just hot glued it into my gauntlets.

    Evostick is a contact adhesive. Might be a British thing though.

    I gotcha. I believe 3M may make a similar product here in the states.
