    Default Wearing Two Pairs Of Pants

    I find that if I wear two pairs of pants I can work longer in a hot enviroment. Oh sure, it slows me down a bit, but I feel safer. Once at a fire I went in and could feel heat on my legs and I didn't like this. So now I wear two pairs of pants and I don't ever have to feel that heat again. 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?

    Me I wear an aluminum foil jumpsuit under my gear. I find it reflects the heat well and I can always throw popcorn in my pocket to pop it if it gets to hot.

    I agree that two pairs of pants work well. I also wear a pair of 3/4 boots OVER the two pairs of pants. Try it, you will like it. If you don't do it this way, your ways sucks.

    I got tired of the whole leather vs. plastic helmet debate so now I wear both. I soon realized thay this offers a huge improvment in cranium protection. Looks a little different but I have noticed it is catching on with the brothers. We just our ISO rating reduced to a four and I contribute this directly to my double helmet policy.

    My job has got all of your loser jobs beat. We run our water through a smooth bore nozzle screwed together with a fog, so there! We also run on trucks that are red with a lime green pearl base coat, that has both electronic and mechanical sirens, and all of our lights are combinations of flashers, rotating strobes, with redbluecleargreen lenses, for maximum optical abilty, all for your safety, comfort, enjoyment, pleasure, self-esteem and non-hurt feelings for total socio-political correctness. It's no wonder that when any other fire department in our state has anything more than a wastebasket fire that we haffta get special-called on mutual aid.

    If I was working in Chicago I would be wearing 2 pants too, but I would also wear regular Structural Boots inside the 3/4 ones.

    Dude, if you think two pairs of pants helps keep the heat off, you ought to try wearing BUNKER PANTS over them!






































    Oh, sorry...

    Me, I've started wearing two hoods and three pairs of gloves. I've recently read that there are many advantages to doing this.

    Ah yes the good old 2 pair of pants debate. I find that if you read Whacker Warrior Weekly, you will find that you will indeed gain confidence while entering a warm environment. This added protection along with 3/4 boots pulled up under your bunker pants will completely make you a super hero during super heated situations. Of course we all know that fires burn hotter in the bigger cities. And now, with this new technological advance, we can really go deep.

    Chicago, thanks for a great laugh!!

    HOLD IT HOLD IT HOLD IT What about wearing 2 coats. I mean really you wouldn't want to dump into something and get your elbow too hot would ya. 3 hoods, 2 coats, 1 pant, plus 3/4 boats, and 700 yards of tin foil, is the why to go. Oh ya and exterior fire attack only.

    Correct me if I'M wrong but, I though I was suppossed to use the tin foil under my helmet so the micro chip the CIA planted a few years ago can't transmitt! If you have to wear a jumpsuit does that mean your transmitter is attached to something other than your brain?

    I think your confusing the "transmitter" in your brain with the "emitter" that is about 3 feet lower.

    On a side not, always a great prank. Get a nice pair of womens underwear (preferably a thong), and put it over the prankee's pants, and pull them back down so they are ready to wear. The next run he gets, he pulls up his pants, with the underwear outside. Kinda hard to explain to a chief with no sense of humor, however.

    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".
