Standard or Fitted Turnout Gear?
Are you measured for your turnout gear or issued standard (S M L XL etc.) gear? Also, there are many female firefighters. Are the females wearing smaller size "men's or standard" gear or are they issued or purchasing proportionate fitting turnouts?
My first set of turnout gear, that I purchased, was a quick measure and a standard set of gear. The gear I have been issued in my department was measured to fit properly.
Our department's policy is you get issued what's on the rack until completeing your basic and probation, then they will have you fitted for your gear.
