    Hey I want in too.

    I like Chicago's idea, and it makes a lot of sense, so I think I'm going to start wearing my rubber boots over my leathers.

    That way, I'll be comfortable, and safe, and my leathers will stay nice and clean to wear to the bar after work. And if I wear two t-shirts, I can keep my "I fight what you fear" shirt clean too.

    Chicks dig guys in clean leathers and cool t-shirts.

      Well normally the hair on my legs is enough to take care of the PPE issue.

        This thread reminds me of the time I had two girlfriends at the same time. Just in case one of them could not perform, I mean work, uuuh, I mean, oh, never mind.

                I can really buy into this wearing two of everything. The benefits are clear. However, it really wipes me out, carrying all that extra gear.

                I've found the only way to rehab is to eat a double helping of double chocolate ice cream.

                Yum!

                    I prefer to wear my leather pants with nomex pants over them. I also wear booties on my boots so I have double the waterproofing. I am wondering however, what would look the best on my helmet, LED lights or strobes?

                    Can I offer you another Jr. Mint, sir?

                    Ok, Ok, to be honest, I don't like the heat at all so I don't even leave the station (but I still have my leather pants on...)

Once at a fire I went in and could feel heat on my legs and I didn't like this. So now I wear two pairs of pants and I don't ever have to feel that heat again. I would never work for a department that wouldn't let me wear two pairs of pants because of their ignorant disregard for my safety and feelings. What about you guys?
                      Chicago,

                      You have inspired me to suggest that the guys here not only wear 2 pairs of pants but have the turn outs covered in Rhino Lining.

                        I can support this. Where do I find NFPA guidelines for ice cream?

                          Im not going to fight fire unless I get to use Proximity Gear. Hell we should just break a window and fill the house full of AFFF and the victim and find their own way out it might be to hot for us..
                          SO ChicagoFF what your saying is you dont like the 2 hood system.lol.
