    I don't think they're real Nomex....that would make them rather expensive. However, The Roberts Company has something available on-line at the following address:

    http://www.firecatalog.com/jackets/

    Or, you can call them at 1-800-729-1482

    Good luck!

    I too am looking for the same thing but I don't know the internet address to get them, but I do know that they are very very expensive!

    I purchased two sets of kids bunker gear for my 6 and 8 year old boys from Gall's Catalog out of Lexington, KY. They have various options from individual pants, coats, etc. to complete sets including a red "gear bag". Both my kids love the gear and I am thinking about having them report to our next recruit class the first day they recieve their gear so the boys can show the recruits how to bunker out under the stop watch!!!!!!!!

    SquadCapt, I wish I'da had some when I was little, I might be able to do it a little quicker now.
    Last night, I learned to check your suspenders before pulling the pants up. Racking yourself while getting dressed to go to a call when your riding front seat on the ladder truck doesn't exactly feel like the greatest thing in the world, and then all the while going down the road I'm trying to fix it and trying to work the Federal at the same time. I finally figured it out, and I got it fixed right after I marked us on location. Now I make sure the straps are set right every time I set it out by the truck!

    LOL, Jr. I've been in this business for 25 years and on more than one occassion have found myself singing soprano because of those blasted suspenders, usually while coming out of a dead sleep in the middle of the night. Something to be said for the old day boots we used to wear. My oldest son asked me to "time" him that Christmas afternoon, after he played with his new gear that morning. He's been wearing me out ever since! Don't woory about crossing the straps over, Jr. Anybody who tells you they've never had a similar experience is either tellin' a fib or their trucks have cobwebs on them from lack of runs.

    ROFLMAO! OH man, I hate it when that 0300 alarm activation comes in and you go running (ok, more like barely walking) into the bays, jump into the boots, pull the trousers up, and they just won't make it! Heh heh....been there, done that.

    The bad thing was, it was at about 6 PM! LOL! Now I take those 5 extra seconds to check those straps before each and every run!!!
