Propper MCPS Gore-tex Nomex Jacket

Propper MCPS









Still available on some retailer sites, but honestly go to eBay and get it cheaper.  At $700 not too many will buy this great piece of gear, but if you do you’re in Helicopters a lot. (this type 1 version is for non ejectable aircraft only…i.e. helicopters) This jacket developed for the military’s Multi Climate Protective System of outer wear program by Propper will definitely get the job done.  Available in Green and Khaki Nomex FR fabric as the bread and waterproof breathable Gore-tex as the meat laminate. Pants also available for those cool doors-off Autumn flights.  Roomy enough to layer underneath but not so bulky to be cumbersome.  Popping the collar…not mandatory but recommended.

Re-Claimed Fire Hose Iphone Covers

reclaimed fire hose iphone covers red black









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

agilite ipc














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.

Encountering Space The Fire Lookouts of Montana

Thoma Lookout Night shot















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.
