Re-Claimed Fire Hose Iphone Covers

Using culled fire hose to protect your Iphone is a pretty cool idea.  I’d use aramid hose but don’t tell Tom.  I’d also use it over my Lifeproof case…just saying.  Check them out, lots of different colours to choose from.  Don’t you dare use weeping hose.  Re-claimed fire hose Iphone covers, check them out.

Agilite IPC Injured Personnel Carrier

Kind of hard to explain, thank goodness for videos!  Basically a ready made sling system that you can drape around the injured person and then carry said person on your back leaving hands free, to climb ladders or shoot your way to safety or medical aid.  I see this as a potential Crossfit WOD; choose your partner wisely.  Agilite’s website is down so check it out later, until then, here’s the video.

Absolutely life changeing apparently.

“Time spent being a lookout isn’t spent at all. Every day in a lookout is a day not subtracted from the sum of one’s life.” — Fire Season

Before they are all gone, take the time to see what a fire lookout’s life entailed.
