    I've never heard of it. My suspicion is it could be some re-labeling of another brand, most likely imported. They know that marketing it as "Pride of Bangladesh" won't help it sell in the states, so they gave it a nice American name. Kind of like World War 2, when sauerkraut became "victory cabbage".

    Lion Products uses the name for other items. Maybe they used to have turnouts with the same name.

    If it's Lion, that's good. They have a plant about 30 miles from me.

    Yep the Tag says lion. This gear was only used in 2 real fires during training and looks and feels brand new. He kept good care of it. However, the date is 2000. I cant find any NFPA stuff about actual time limits. Its more or less just conditions. I want to use it. Can anyone help out or give me their opinion??? Thanks guys!

    Ten years from the original date of manufacturing. I'll try to find the link or at least the NFPA page.
