Jumbo FireFighter Gear Bag

"Love the product! It goes with me everywhere! I take it in and out of my truck all the time and it never stops working. I just the strap had better placement or better padding, cause after awhile, it sucks to have on your shoulder when its fully packed.

The Most Popular Pull-On Structural Boot

These boots are amazing. They fit like tennis shoes that you can wear into a fire. You'll never buy another pair of boots. -Marsh, FL


There's a reason that the Globe Supreme 14" Structural Pull-On Fire boots continue to remain a popular, sought-after choice for the firefighter. They're ranked a 4.8 out of 5 by our reviewers and 96% of wearers would recommend them to a friend. They're not deemed, "The most comfortable boots you will ever wear" for no reason.

They boast the sneaker-like feel that make them a popular choice. The highly flexible material can endure up to 1,000,000 flexes with zero compromise in performance.

The included Snug-Fit inserts give that extra boost to customize your comfort level. The special CROSSTECH moisture barrier provides unmatched protection, and the composite-safety toe keeps you protected if heavy objects fall.

The Pro-Tech 8 Fusion Gloves


The popular Pro-Tech 8 Fusion Structural/Wildland Firefighting and Extrication gloves truly maximize your "gloves-on capability" in all your fire ground tasks.

Wearers rave about the versatility. Check out these reviews:

These gloves actually allow for good dexterity. I could actually tie complex knots with these gloves on. This makes them great for training and passing of skills testing as well as improved safety during fire scenes because you can feel what you are doing. - Logan, UT

I was debating buying gloves because I had gloves prior but, they sucked and were hard to move my hand in. Once I bought these gloves I was able to get ready faster and can do everything in these gloves. Super comfortable and when wet your hand stays dry. LIFE WITHOUT THESE GLOVES IS UNTHINKABLE. -Silvercola, New Jersey

--

Some of the features of the Fusion gloves include: Fire Retardant Pathogen/Moisture barrier which provides improved tactility, varied layering schemes that avoid bulking, mesh knit inner liner to reduce friction when taking off/putting on, and a flexible 7-layer knuckle guard system that provides the best protection of any gloves out there. 

The insides of the gloves are fully lined with two layers of a highly breathable, completely sealed polymer membrane, which prevents liquid and blood borne pathogen penetration.  The reflective tape is strategically placed on the glove's backside near the wrist area to help keep you seen and safe.

This glove is offered in a long cuff or short cuff option and in sizes XS-3XL.

The Better-Than-Ever Glo Fat Ivan

It's hard to forget a name like Fat Ivan.

The Glo Fat Ivan was created purely out of necessity to aid firefighters in keeping doors open behind them, and to keep hose lines from getting pinched under doors.

The Fat Ivan is a small, foldable door chock that fits in your pocket (or in your helmet band) and can be used on any door hinge.


This short video will show you how the Fat Ivan works.




The GLO Fat Ivan features a Glo-in-the-dark TheFireStore logo helping it to remain visible. It is made in the U.S.A. and has all of the great features Fat Ivan users love: a compact, lightweight design, a strong and durable build, and a 100% guarantee.




Available in four colors (red, white, yellow, black), and a 100% warranty coverage if it breaks, you simply can't go wrong with a Fat Ivan.
