    When a security guard,I carried extra ammunition for my sidearm and shotgun.I was always getting told to lose it,which I did.Until the field supervisor departed and then it went right back into the patrol unit.
    It's an attitude I got in the Navy.After the inspection,then break out the extra stuff that you KNOW you need to do the job.
    True, the same reason I carry 24 rifle mags and 4 pistol mags vise the "authorized" 6 and zero for my T/O weapon. As far as anyone is concerned.....I only have 6.

My Fire Chief is always making remarks about getting me gear without pockets so that I cant carry around all my Personal Tools. He States if it aint FD issue you cant have it. And I reply "then buy it" but of course he doesnt believe in bailout rope. Wire cutters etc. I will never get rid of my pocket tools. If anything I will add. and when I need them I will use them. The funny part is when on the FG who do the guys come to for a tool? Why do the Chief or Officers have such a for this subject. All of my equipment is NFPA or better. Except the home made stuff like door Chalks etc.

    Am I the only one with this problem here.

    Left bunker pocket 50 foot escape rope with beaner, loaded just like a rope
    bag. Right pocket leatherman tool, door wedge, and webbing loop. I like to keep it simple. I have a couple friends that have thier pockets loaded up with tools and all sorts of things. When it came to bailing out of a window head first onto a ladder I had no trouble at all, but my friend with the over abundance of tools in his bunket pockets got hung up on the top of the ladder and ended up dropping some of his tools. If there would have been someone who happened to be strolling around without a helmet on it could have been bad. I feel quite safe with a TNT tool in my hand, and a flashlight and nails in my helmet strap.

    How did you fit all of Lent into your pocket? You guys must use those oversized pants pockets!

    Seriously though, I carry my bailout bag, webbing, res-q-wrench, window punch, door wedges, safety glasses, and a multitool...

    MXZ Saw

    Has anyone tried one of those MXZ saws that's supposed to go through everything but cold rolled steel like it's butter?It looks like it'd be a handy item on TV but in real life...?

    Those large cargo pockets

    In an effort to keep the coat light and not fill the pockets. The bellows pockets on pants are great for everything: 1 pair of structure gloves, utility strap with a 500 kl/n rated carribener attached, some guys are now carrying a Sav-A-Jak, two wedges for sprinkler control or door wedges, a pair of utility gloves for when after the fire is out, and the primary gloves are wet, folding spanner wrench, a flashlight, and a multi-tool for cutting wires, carpet, sheet rock etc. etc.

    oaattx934,

    I like that pouch idea. Seems like a good way to keep stuff organized and stop the tools from ripping up your pockets.

    I have seen this topic discussed a million times too but this seems like a new twist on it.


    Thanks,

    FyredUp
