Over the years, turnout gear has improved, becoming lighter and more efficient at shielding radiant heat. Though, an often-overlooked improvement in turnout gear is the increased pocket space.
Not willing to let a good thing go to waste, firefighters have taken to stuffing every pocket they can find with a tool or item they can use.
Firefighters are a sentimental bunch but also a group defined by experience. Every tool chosen comes with a story. Whether they’ve chosen to always carry a shove knife, because of that one time a door wouldn’t budge, or a spanner wrench because they needed to shut a gas valve; every firefighter has a tool or tools they keep on hand.
At Darley, we’re constantly striving to bring you the practical, reliable equipment you deserve. We want to be your source for every piece of firefighting equipment you carry with you, and we’d really appreciate your feedback.
