NEW Cosmas: 13" Java Bunker Boot with Nomex Lining

Let's start this off with a recent review from a wearer of these boots, shall we? 

"We just got these boots in our volunteer department. Although we would have preferred leather boots, our budget is way too tight. So our chief bought us these boots. They are surprisingly nice for rubber boots. Lighter and more comfortable than other boots. A nice change from all the other brands we have tried over the years."

The new Cosmas 13" Java Bunker Boot prides itself on combining the protective qualities of a structural firefighting boot with the comfortable feel of a regular shoe. They designed it to fit just like a regular shoe, with minimal heal slippage when you're running or walking-because who has time for that when on the scene?

The Java Bunker Boot is handmade from 100% vulcanized waterproof rubber. The boot features a high visibility yellow trim with 3M reflective piping around the outsole for awesome visibility. The Nomex lining provides extra insulation and safety. With the vulcanized pull-on loops you're able to easily get those boots on and off with no fuss at all.

If you want to reduce foot, leg and back fatigue that comes along with long days on your feet, the boot's 100% polyurethane insole helps that. You can rest assured that with the protective midsole features and ASTM and CSA certified puncture resistant steel plate as well as ladder shank you will be climbing ladders in comfort with support you need. Your lug outsole is non-slip, abrasion resistant, self-cleaning and resistant to hydrocarbons. The steel toe cap will protect those toes from puncturing hazards that may try to come your way. 

The boots come with a great warranty. So if you're looking for an awesome pair of pull-on's--let the New Cosmas 13" Java's be your pick.

Warranty: 100% “Top-To-Bottom” 3-Year Warranty. Everything on the boot is guaranteed for 3 years, including the outsole. Novation S.p.A. warrants its Cosmas® footwear to be free from defects in workmanship and materials. This warranty does not cover normal wear and tear or unusual exposures, as conditions of use are outside the control of the manufacturer. This limited warranty is granted to the original buyer and shall extend for a period of three (3) years from the date of purchase. Except as set forth above, Cosmas® makes no other warranties, express or implied, including, but not limited to, any warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular use. Repair, replacement, or dealer credit, at the manufacturer’s sole discretion, shall be the exclusive remedy available for breach of this warranty. The manufacturer shall not be liable for incidental or consequential damages.

There's a new standard in town when it comes to hoods...and that's the New Capt. Jim's Fire Hood from Response Protection Corp.

Don't even bother reading any further until you check out this video.

Crazy, right?

The Capt. Jim Hood offers firefighters tremendous durability and a high level of protection against flame and intense heat. This hood was created by Kevin F. O'Donoghue, the CEO of RPC. Drawing from his 38 years of experience in the fire service, he created a safer and more comfortable hood for firefighters.

The hood is made of a double-layered 60% 6oz Micro Carbon Fiber/40% Kevlar blend that wicks away moisture and steam while providing advanced thermal protection.

The Capt Jim measures 20" long and features an expandable face opening. Right in the center of the hood's crown sits a 3"x7" FR protected vent, which also helps to wick away moisture and keep the head cool while on duty.

This hood is a simple wash---just use plain soap and warm or cool water, then air dry it within 2 hours.

  • Fire hood is made of a double-layered 60% 6 oz. Micro Carbon Fiber / 40% Kevlar blend
  • 20” long hood features an expandable face opening
  • 3” x 7” FR protected vent sits in the center of the fire hood’s crown
