Wildland Fire Fighting Gear

Casio G-Shock

I bought my first Casio in the 1990s, exasperated with other watches failing with professional use. To this day, I still own the same watch. Through the years, I’ve evaluated other watches, but none of them have stood up to the standards and quality of the G-Shock from Casio.

The Casio G-Shock line of watches is hands-down the best choice for the professional. In our opinion, Casio G-Shock digital and analog watches are the ultimate timepiece.

They provide durable, shock resistant, 200 meter water-resistant watches for various activities, and the PRg cadre has found them to be reliable not only for years, but for decades.
