    Um, No. Are you trying to say that you don't wear two SCBA's, two pairs of pants with 3/4 boots, 3 jackets, and 3-4 pairs of gloves?? My god man, safety first!!!

I would never work for a department that wouldn't let me wear two pairs of pants because of their ignorant disregard for my safety and feelings. What about you guys?
    I couldn't agree more......on a side note, my second pair of pants fits much better now, since I've removed my ball$.

    Noooooooo hehehe

    Some people might think the 2 Hoods thread and others of it's ilk are "a joke". So I guess it depends on what you mean by "a joke".


    hehehehe I'm such a little ***** disturber. Where's my halo?

    LMAO!! But seriously though, did anyone ever think that it might be a bit safer just to stay in the rig? Nice climate controlled atmosphere... unless you've got an open cab. Maybe a scarf to go around the 2 hoods in cold weather if that's the case?

    How about leather v plastic pants? Or is that a different discussion?

    My friends say that since I got engaged I don't even wear one pair of pants anymore. I guess I'll really feel the heat!

    Yes it is... the looks and the ribbing the brother gets are priceless!

    PS: Hot pink thong panties against black gear really stands out!

    I put my black pants on first. After that, I don my tan pants which are altered to show "peeks" of my black pants. My nickname is Sassy; can someone explain that

    The trouble with this sort of talk is, eventually, some (unedumacated) Chief will think..."Now that seems like a right good idea right there..."

    BTW has no one from Galls jumped on this? I look forward to the leap in sales for Nomex skivvies and of course more feminine attire for the ladies.

    I wear two helmets (leather), two sets of turnouts (both colors), two hoods, two sets of SCBA. All standard issue. But I won't wear it at my Dept. Tiki bar or over my Company issued $600.00 suit.

    Only one tiki bar? Suppose it is full and there is no more room? One $600 dollar suit? If you wore two suits, you probably would not feel the heat on your legs if you spilled a cup of coffee on yourself.
