Summer Release 2019: True North Gear® Decon™ Laundry Bag

Seattle, WA - True North Gear® to release the Decon™ Laundry Bag, designed to address a gap within current industry products by offering a simple-yet-effective solution to easily and safety isolating contaminated turnout gear.

DECON™ LAUNDRY BAG / 75L

The Decon™ Laundry Bag has a very important job; to protect the firefighter from cancer-causing carcinogens left on dirty turnout gear. With its airtight design and abrasion-resistant construction, this roomy bag reliably traps soiled gear and prevents contaminates on PPE from migrating to the apparatus’ cabin until items can be safely laundered. The Decon™ can be washed and line-dried after each use due to its rugged 210 Denier-coated Nylon material and watertight welded seams. Using a technique at the molecular level of the fabric, our welded seams are bonded together as one, providing dependable, waterproof protection with the ability to handle up to 2x more stress from use then sewn-and-taped seams. The Decon™ Laundry Bag; durable enough for the rear storage area, safe enough for the riding cabin or POVs, and functional enough to reliably isolate hazardous contaminants and create a safer environment for firefighters. Color: Bright Orange | Size: 24 x 36 x 105 cm
