Patroller Gear

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to find the following gear, any help is appreciated:
  1. First Aid Belt (prefer the 3 segement type) with NSP oval patch.
  2. Good source for First Aid Belt contents.
  3. 5 Patroller Parkas (long body style) Red with Black and White Cross.
Any other suggestions on what type of gear you carry, and find useful, is welcomed (other than the obvious pants, under clothing, etc...).

Eastern Division clothing-equipment web site has a number of links that may help you.

Go to the patrol supplies section and look at the patrol belts. They don't have the NSP logo on them but they are good belts. You are either going to want the Minturn or Modified Minturn belt.

First aid belt contents are on pg. 862 in the OEC textbook.

For the parkas you might want to scratch that idea and just get a vest. You can buy a black softshell to wear underneath. The vest will be more versitile especially on warm days where you can either wear a black fleece or t-shirt underneath. Plus the vests have a lot of storage space so you don't need to pack your patrol vest to the gills, or can you carry more of your personal items with you like extra gloves or bottles of water.

My Mtn. supplies jackets, but when I went to buy a vest, I found this...

the Rescue Jacket is a vest with zip off sleeves. I don't think I'd wear it in a downpour, but it adds versatility to the vest. great for those springtime cold mornings that get warm, or those warm days that get cold on sweep, when you can just zip on the sleeves. Winter, I sometimes wear the vest over a cloudveil Zero G...
As for supplies, We just raid the first aid room and only have to buy a pack.
