    Default Question for Chicago, Denver, & Austin FFs

    I know there are many posts about carbon hoods. But, according to thefirestore.com Chicago, Denver, and Austin firefighters are issued these PBI carbon hoods. I have just acquired one.

    How do you guys like them? Any problems out of the ordinary? I'm looking for input from Brothers that have used them in the field in real fires, does not have to be extrordinary circumstances, just working fires where you were inside "working".

    Thank you,

    PBI Carbon? Is it a blend?


    Brass does not equal brains.

    Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the ability to control it.
