Pusser said:CHEMOX never bothered me. As a young Reservist, I once spent an entire summer at the DC School wearing one for several hours, virtually everyday. I became so adept at using it that I could put it on and have air flowing faster by myself than if someone was trying to "help" me. I also usually did this without using the quick start candle. One of the big advantages I felt was that with everything in front, one could move around much easier in a shipboard environment. I even managed to get through an escape hatch without collapsing the lungs - and I'm a big boy. The only real advantage I saw in the Scott Pack was that the air tended to be cooler and "taste" better.
Your arms must be longer than mine. I constantly collapsed my lungs. I doubt if I ever fought a fire with the chemox working.
