Well, I just got done posting about how I'd cleared out stuff, was down to the bare bones essentials and only had my old tired ass turnouts and blankets left. and I just got done going out to check on the monsters, and Chester and Al have ripped the straps off and put big gigantic holes in their turnouts. Chester's was around his neck : So, looks like I'm going to be buying some more stuff What is the absolute toughest turnout anyone can think of? Al's was a Rambo -- it had a long and distinguished career, so fairly tough (it still might be salvageable). The one he had previously was a Baker, again, fairly tough. Chester's was a Schneider's -- only lasted 2 seasons, and now destroyed beyond all hope of redemption (and we'd had such hopes for it when we got it) So, has to be tougher than a Schneider's and at least as tough as a Rambo or Baker (bonus brownie points if someone knows of anything tougher -- body armor perhaps). I should rent these two idgits to a blanket company as test subjects.
