    What do you wear under your fire-suit?

    I think the image that Danny posted is a message without words, survival. Hopefully some of the 4700+ people that have viewed this thread will upgrade or add to their race equipment for fire protection. Wear all the gear all the time.

    What do you wear under your fire-suit?
