    So what options do you like/love/demand in your turnout gear. I'm getting my first set of new issue gear and can spec out in general what options I want.

    What say you?

      A long coat with "hand-warmer" pockets.

      That's the biggest complaints we have about ours, the coats ride up and when we're standing around outside (ice rescues, mva's, etc.) our hands get damn cold!

        Pretty well the same as everyone but I keep my hood in my helmet so I don't dump my pockets when I go to get it and I have a laminated pump chart in my inside pocket. Oh and a pen-size wireless, touchless household voltage detector for overhaul.

          I know i'm not a seasoned veteran like some people here but i figured i'd give my list of stuff I keep in my gear:

          Helmet- two wedges/door chocks, 1 pair of trauma shears

          Coat- survivor flashlight clipped to one of my buckles, extrication gloves in my outside pockets, copy of my EMT card and a pair of safety glasses in my inside pocket.

          suspenders- 3+ pairs of EMS gloves in a glove pouch

          pants- nice set of cable cutters (less than $20 at home depot), structural FF gloves (one in each pocket), webbing, utility rope, more wedges.
          If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!

              Gear Bag: 2 bottles of water, beef jerky, safety glasses, 8" leather boots and bandanna for wildland stuff, earplugs

              Left coat pocket: 2 folding spanner wrenches, leatherman tool, lots of latex free gloves

              Chest pocket: mini maglight, space for a radio

              Right coat pocket: a Rosary

              Pants pocket: 16' of bright yellow tublular webbing. We call it a "rescue strap" around here

              Medical Jumpsuit (that I wear under my turnouts): loads of latex free gloves, a pocket knife, mini dictionary, CPR mask, Sharpie markers, a pen, scrap paper, a pocket watch, and the Gospel of Saint John

              I need new wedges for my helmet and I think I'll investigate those big yellow ones that someone posted here. Those golfballs sound like a good idea...

                My Stuff

                Helmet: Rubber strap, 2 wedges and 4 golf tees. They are great for
                plugging up busted fuel lines and the like.

                Coat: Radio Pocket-Radio when I can get one, empty when I can't.
                Right Coat Chest-D-ring wth Accountability tags and pelican
                light.
                Left Coat pocket-50' cheap clothesline-ties off jet siphon
                hoses, gates, commercial doors(nails don't work in metal door
                frames)
                Right Coat Pocket-extra wedges but they might get replaced
                by a glow stick and a couple golf balls, I got a few
                with 'smiles' on em'
                Pants:Left Leg-fire gloves and hood
                Left Suspender-glove pouch with as many pairs of latex gloves
                as I can stuff in to it
                Right take up strap-Contractors pouch with EMT Shears, mini-mag,
                Gerber tool, old swiss army knife and a pen (can't seem to keep
                any in the clip board with the PCR's) easily dropped when it's
                not a medical call
                Right Leg- here we go, my "junk pocket", but I use it all-TFT
                Res-Q-Rench (means you got a seatbelt or cheap clothesline
                cutter, window punch, spanner wrench), cheap mid-sized pair of
                vice-grips, lineman's pliers, what I call a 4-way screwdriver
                (2 size phillips, 2 size slotted and usually 2 different sized
                nut drivers where the bits go-good for taking apart appliances)
                and 20' of 7/16 kernmantle rope with a 'biner on each end.
                Cleverly disguised as a responsible adult.

                Anything found in my posts is soley my opinion and not representative of any other individual or entity.

                You know that thing inside your helmet? Use it wisely and you'll be just fine.

                            Over the years I have carried more and less.

                            Right now I have,

                            Helmet- Band w/ Garrity light & spare accountablity tag

                            Coat:
                            On radio tabs- 1 caribiner eachside, one holds my strap & gloves the other holds the survivor light ( I have lost at least one due to the clip) Besides, they are handy to have.
                            Radio pocket- ear plugs still unopened , and 1 pair of tinsnips
                            R & L pockets- Idle hand space
                            Inside pock.- 1 pair rubber gloves

                            Pants pockets- knife on one side and leatherman on other. Also non-fire leather work gloves. maybe some chalk, hmmm that may be it.

                            I'm still waiting for a 30' piece of webbing from our dept shops/supply. My old one is not trustworthy. Guess that's about it, unless you want details like old snuff cans 7 stuff. LOL
