ErgodyneErgodyne announced today new additions to its line of Arsenal® Fire & Responder Gear Bags. These products were designed to give firefighters, first responders, and other workers a tougher and more convenient way to carry their gear.

“Most bags are either built cheaply or are overcomplicated and pricey,” said Nate Bohmbach, senior product manager, Ergodyne. “Arsenal® Fire & Responder Gear Bags provide durability without sacrificing style for those who demand more from their gear.”

The new bags in the Arsenal® Line include:

5008 Fire & Safety Gear Bag: Giant capacity makes it perfect for firefighters to store turnout gear, tower climbers to carry fall protection equipment, and others who need a bag that can haul a large load.

5080 SCBA Mask Bag (w/ updated drawstring opening): A new drawstring and hi-vis loop means this bag can be opened and closed with just one hand.

5082 SCBA Mask Bag (w/ drop down opening): A new hook and loop drop down provides easy access to your mask.

5216 Responder Gear Bag and 5244 Responder Backpack: Built for first responders in all industries with convenient medical supply storage and available in either a traditional over-the-shoulder or backpack design.

5875 and 5876 Buddy Carriers: Practical and cool, these clamshell carriers come in a variety of colors and were designed with first responders in mind to stand out inside of a larger vessel.

Ergodyne’s Fire and SCBA Mask Bags feature 360-degree grab handles, a fresh digital camo pattern, tarpaulin-reinforced bottoms, customizable straps, and wide openings for easy access to their storage space. Tough and attractive, these fire and safety bags offer firefighters a durable storage solution to securely transport their protective gear and equipment. They work together to help station jumpers, volunteers, and others on the move be organized and well prepared.

Overcomplicated storage can create confusion at the most inopportune times when responders are called to a scene and have to dig around for the right gear/medical supplies. With durable fabrics, smart transporting, and internal organization features, Arsenal® Responder bags are built to last and ideal for responders of all industries.

“Those who put their lives on the line to help others deserve only the best gear,” said Tom Votel, president and CEO, Ergodyne. “Arsenal® Fire & Responder Gear Bags offer durability, organization, simplicity, and comfort without busting budgets.”

Ideal for firefighters, responders, and workers in other tenacious trades who need to gear up and go, these new bags are available NOW at all authorized Ergodyne U.S. distributors.
