Alright folks, i know it proably does not belong in this forum but i figuar its the most appropriate forum.
Cold weather is comming and the jackets are being broken out. My department put me in charge of picking a jacket for our members for those calls such as medicals that dontt require bunker jacket.
What jacket do you like? Is it the game sports wear " bravest" jacket or another type and if its another can you please post a link for it?

Dan, we wear and love our Globe Lifeline EMS gear. Zip out coat liner makes for 4 season use. We do the short coat and matching pants. Besides weather protection the crosstec barrier keeps us safe from all the bloodborne crap and meets compliance issues.
That was not a sales hit, I don't sell it, I just love it!

Game Sportswear and 5.11 Tactical are 2 great companies with excellent jackets. If you are looking to keep the price down a bit, Game is the way to go. Their 3-Season is nice but they also have a 3 in 1 jacket with a zip out liner which can be used for a longer period of time. They also have the jackets with reflective striping that meet ANSI standards. As for 5.11, all of their jackets come with the reflective vest and are nice jackets...but are definitely more expensive.... I think it will depend on what your company is willing to spend and what the purpose is? Just to identify yourselves? Or to protect yourselves from body fluids? This will make a big difference in what you choose....

Now that I see the above, we also run the Gerber Parka and 911 pants They do hit nfpa and ansi requirments at a very reasonable price. Our EMS crews run the globe in navy blue, our fire police / road safety guys wear the GERBER 911 pants and lime and black response parka. Decent garments at a very reasonable price we have had them over a year with regular use, they seem to be holding up well. We also had retro-reflective badges and lettering applied at the Gerber factory.
