    Default Equipment bag

    I'm in search of an equipment bag to store a set of spanners, gated wye, and an automatic nozzle. It will be used for stand pipe operation. Currently we have 100' of hose double doughnut rolled with the above equipment hooked to it. It's just to sloppy. Any suggestions?

    "RipCord" Duffelbags, one model has wheels. We use a couple of these as our RIT air supply bag. The only modification we did was to add large ring carabiners to the zipper rings to allow for use with gloved hands. Much cheaper then in a fire supply shop because it isn't called a "Fire", "Rescue" or "EMS" bag.

    Default No wait...

    LA Rescue makes the best heavy duty fire service bags
    FOR Firefighters. I own 7 of them for years with no problems
    except for some minor work on the one I've owned for 14
    years. (Some velcro wore off)

    The best part is- THEY HAVE A LIFETIME GUARANTEE. Thats
    right. If it rips, tears or just plain comes apart, you
    send it back to them in Tucson, AZ it comes back to you
    good as new, FREE OF CHARGE.

    In fact, I have sent 4 bags down for minor repairs so
    far with NO problems. I've owned one of their bags for
    fourteen (14) years and it is still working for me. (Ask
    me for a picture, I bought it in 1990 for $50. Best money
    I ever spent) And I thrashed it every 24 hour shift since.
    If you dont believe me, ask UTFFEMT. He owns 3 of their
    bags. (all blue) He thrashed one all up, I sent it down
    and it came back all new.

    Check with local electrical supply company. Around here, they have very heavy canvas bags with 2 leather handles, reinforced leather bottoms, and closure is a flap on top that is secured with carabiner type clip. They come in several shapes and sizes. I have had a couple over the years that were given to me by people working in the electrical field, and have mostly been used to carry tools in, and the only problem I had with them was dry-rot from being stored out in the elements, and not being properly taken care of.

    TFDNICk, e-mail direct at Firescueguy@aol.com - I've got some bags that would work for your needs including a few samples that I'm clearing out at reduced prices. Look forward to hearing from you. Stay Safe.

    Austin Powers tried to kill him in Goldmember. It didn't work. Mini-me can't be killed.

    Well all I have to do is bundle him up in a LA Rescue gear
    bag and drop him in the Bay. POOF! No more Mini-Me. I hate
    Mini-Me, he is a freak and steals my food.

    Fem-bots? Why? So you can get murdered by their machine gun jubblies? Damn, I never knew you had a death wish. Why don't you crawl into bed with Fat Bastard like Felicity Shagwell (Shag very well by reputation) did?

    By the way, this is my 500th post.

    Go get a canvas tool bag from a local hardware store or Home Depot/Lowe's......... Can get one for less than $20 and it should fit. We just bought some to use for our hydrant bags.......

    Don't waste money on the "special" stuff that is tripled in price because it is "fire service" equipment. Go to the local masonary supplier and get a canvas masonary tool bag. They have a reinforced bottom. heavy canvas construction, leather straps to keep them closed and sturdy handles. They are designed to carry steel masonary tools, so they will do the job for you. My former department uses them for hydrant bags to keep ball valves, hydrant wrenches and an assortment of adapters in because they have a few "bastard" hydrants in the city. The usual practice was to toss them by the hydrant before you pulled the supply line. Never seen one come open or fall apart.

    Ummmmmmmm probably not, but I'll bet they last damn near as long as your bag, and cost less. Just because it has the "name" and is more expensive, doesn't mean it's better........ If that's the case, you would be wearing a leather helmet.........

    Ummm...No. Its not about the "name". Its just a good product
    thats lasted me for 14+ years and still going. And if you mess
    it up, send it back and they will replace it.

    As for the leather helmet, "F" no. What a waste of money
    and extra weight to drag around.

    So who's to say that one of these bags won't last as long????? You can't say that, so how are you going to try to put them down........ Besides, the bag you posted, isn't going to fit a set of spanners, a gated wye, and a nozzle in there......... Not without having to fight to get everything out of it........
