  • Chicago bunkers

    Just saw some video from the big fire yesterday in Chicago and noticed they had their new bunker pants on. I know there was talk earlier that they were getting them, but have they all got them now? How do they like them so far?

    Who cares? They have no choice obviously now.

      Be cautious when you ask questions like that...sometimes you don't get the answer you want to hear. I'd think it would generate a much more interesting response in lets say the last week in July!

      Best of luck to the brothers in the windy city.

        Oh brother where art thou??

        He will tell you the exact story without beating around the bush. I believe they have a choice between the two but not sure.

        I agree, wait until mid-August before you ask that question.

            wow

            4 responses, and few had any answer to my question. I really dont care what happens in July or August, or last July. I cannot pick up the phone and call up a chicago firefighter and ask him how he/she likes his/her bunkers. This is how I communicate with other brothers and sisters around the USA. Dont like it? DOnt post here.

                  You're smart *** comment wasn't exactly the greatest.

                  This hasn't even been up for 24 hours. Be patient! Ever think that maybe our Chicago firefighters on this board are out...... FIGHTING FIRE? Woah, what an idea. Maybe their working, or spending time with their family....

                  FWIW: Around X-Mas they were mandated to wear bunkers. It was posted by one of the Chicago-area guys in another thread.

                    I bet I know how some guys like them. Yesterdays paper had a guy in his new short coat 3/4 boots and orange fireball gloves.
                    What is with the "Chicago Fire Department" spelled out on the back of the coats?

                      Yep, I sure did think they could be fighting fire. My point was I dont need pointless comments that dont answer my question, or degrade it. I dont care if someone responds 2 years from now on it. Your FWIW is exactly what Im looking for. Thanks

                        Here is a link w/photos from that fire w/lots of pics of CFD members showing off their new gear. (lots of good fire pics on the main page too).

                        Looks like the same stuff we wear.

                          i may be wrong but wan't it posted onhere that Morning Pride had gotten the contract for Chicago, yet in the pictures it looks like they have Janesville gear. I may be mistaken but it seems like in the thread a while back about this subject it was stated that morning pride was the winner. Chicagoff am I mistaken or did the city change vendors at the last moment?

                            I think it all came down to bids, MP is what I wear, it's what I trust..Janesville makes a good set of gear, but I don't think it's going to handle the abuse. MP is friggin expensive, and the lead times for new, custom fit stuff are long. So if Janesville says we can get you gear faster and cheaper..which way do you think they would go?

                              Exactly, we are not custom fit for our gear either. We have an entire room from floor to ceiling stocked w/different sized gear.

                              If we need something replaced, we go right down to HQ and get it.
