This is a collection of companies whose products and gear we have evaluated and trust.  If we post it here we are confident in your ultimate satisfaction with not only the products, but the service and reputation of each of these companies.

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.
