      Which Ski is this? 1 2 or 3 :-) One of the covering chiefs has a pair of the pants that have the liner integrated into the boots, but its not connected. The liner creates a bootie. Its a pilot program, word was that if the guys at the 3rd alarm in the Bx that killed Howie and Mike had those setups we could have added 3 more guys to the list. 3 guys fell through the floor and were pulled out with out boots, walked out in socks. Id take them, but you know how it goes, we get things 10 years late!

            Rest of the USA maybe. The world is a pretty big palate,and I don't think everybody in the world has bought into the pants thing yet. T.C.

              old thread, i know, but did you ever find out where to get those pant leg keepers you mentioned? i've been searching all over for them and had no luck. i went to a gear manufacturer nearby me to see if they could custom make some and they said they probably could but i'd rather just buy them outright if possible.

              thanks,
              chris

                A company has come out with a product that puts a device that goes around the bottom of your boots and keeps your pants down. Check out ARC911.com its called the ARC Strap. I believe that it is only $20.00

                  First, way to bring back the dead. Second, I'd be a bit skeptical of a strap that holds the pants tight to the boot while crawling, my first though is that it would impede free movement. Bunker gear is restrictive enough, even a marginal decrease in mobility could be a problem. Last, I'm wondering what would give first when you foot (carrying 200+ lbs) goes through the floor/roof: the building materials or the snaps? If it's the building material, one my question your sounding technique?
