Howdy,

:tab We all remember what it was like trying to cover the cost of the MSF course, getting a bike, a helmet, gloves, blah blah blah... All too often I see or hear riders saying that they will get gear later when they can afford it. In an effort to help keep these people in one piece and to help you clear out your closet, this thread is where you can post up any gear or equipment that you would be willing to donate to new riders. They will of course still be expected to pay for shipping if necessary.

:tab So what do you have?

I'll post ua donation in a few days. What a great idea. BTW what are the qualifications to receive the gear? How do you pre-screen requests for items?

Rhino Gloves Sz SM

These gloves are a little too small for me. They were my first pair, and I got a knock-off brand (Rino? Rhino?) online to try to save money. They fit, but they make my knuckles all red if I wear them.

Blue and black, looks like kevlar on the knuckles.

Free to new a rider who needs them to gear up (and whose hands will fit them). Local pick up (Houston) or just pay actual shipping.

I'll try to come up with a pic later if I can.

Yeah, Sr. District Commander (Shift Commander) on A-Shift

I'll send them out to Medic 27 with the District 2 Commander. They cohabitate with AFD on Lake Creek Parkway (Engine 38?). If you swing by Thursday morning and pop in the EMS side, they should be there. I'll tell them to let B-Shift know you are coming since they get off at 0700.

How do you measure your head? I got a cloth measure and went a round my head like in the middle of the forehead and did a loose measurement. I keep getting 59, 60cm around there do you think any of your helmets would fit me?

Measure right above your eyebrows and occiput (the protrusion in the middle of the back of your skull. They would probably be a size too big.
