i carry a lot of stuff, i guess i can handle it........ who wants to be running back and forth for things that are very easy to stick in your bunker gear pockets or on a rubberband on you lid. Makes no sense to me why people would complain about the weight. For example say you got called to a unknown type of call say a 911 hangup in a highrise say 10 stories and the call turned out to be a stabbing...........would you wana run back down to the rig for ems gloves or just pull them outa your pocket......think about it.

Less is more
I'm very big into the concept of less is more. Never carry anything in your gear that you don't have a definite practical application for.
Helmet: 1 Door chock...I used to carry a helmet light too but i thought to myself...if I have my hand light on me then why do i need that little thing.
All I carry in my jacket:
Fire Fighting Gloves
20' of webbing in a water knot
Bail out Rope
