    I just got my new set of bunkers, and i'm looking for some tips and tricks to help break them in and loosen them up. Any suggestions?

    Wear them..... As much as possible they'll break in fairly quickly.... Wash them with no soap

    And hang 'em up to dry - no heat.

    Just remember that you're supposed to log each washing...

    Wearing them will do you the most good.
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    Thanks...I figured wearing them was the best way, and i'll get plenty of time for that next month when I start the academy. Gonna be a long hot summer in that gear. They're a little stiff getting into, but once they're on, they're as comfortable as jeans and a T-shirt.

    Beans. Lots of beans. Curry if in a pinch.

    You want to do your own non-invasive testing of the fire retardance of the arse of the pants, just in-case... it works best if sitting, because then the fibres melt to the shape of your bottom...



    *Whilst I will not condemn your bean-preferences, this is not actual advice..*
