    Well I'm not an explorer but I have new gear. All of the juniors have old gear or hand me downs.But they ordered some new gear and the only person it would fit quit so I was the only other on who could wear it.

    The only time my explorers get new gear is when the paid FF's get new gear so they get the hand me downs

    Usually the cadets and probationary members are issued the older, hand-me-down sets of gear, but I was issued newer gear because it was the only stuff they had in my size. Lucky Me!!
