Ricochet, a Philadelphia-based company has been around for more than 20 years, primarily making EMS and rescue gear, having made a name for its self in New Jersey and long island.
This year, the company moved into structural firefighting gear using fabrics made by Nomex, Crosstech, Scotchlite PBI Performance Products and TenCate.
The company also uses Nor-Fab called OMNI-Elite that the manufacturers claim has a unique twill weave that makes the external shell more comfortable and, more importantly, more flexible.
Ricochet says their gear is cut and sown for ‘maximum mobility” with anatomical patterning. Additionally, all the gear is made in a shop in Philadelphia means they can have quick turnaround times on any order.
