FDNY 6012 said:As said in previous posts the lime is 10+ years old and no longer serviceable and the grey is the next color up. Also some of the silver labeled pantshad those Arashield covers over the pads to prevent the pads from becoming sponges. The orange is for the coats with the DRD's and the bunker pants with the orange have button harness loops instead of the velcro loops and the pants also have a "seam saver". Also the grey labeled coats that do not have the DRD have the DRD installed when the gear goes out for cleaning.
squarewheels said:the drd is put in your old coat if you do not have one in there? i would have never put mine out for cleaning then.
anyone know if you can wash your turnout coat yourself in a regular washer and use regular detergent ?
