When I started out years ago,we still had a couple of demand model MSA packs.We had Survivair Sigmas for the past 14 years and just upgraded last week to Sperian Warriors.Just curious as to who uses what brands and likes and dislikes of any of them.

My dept has the Scott Air Pack 50 with 45 minute carbon fiber bottles. We also have buddy vreathing, trans fill, integrated PASS, and HUD. This is the same exact specs that the other 20 agencies in Jackson County use. We're working on getting our other cooperating county to follow suit, slow process. There is a trend to install Pak Trackers on all the SCBAs within Jackson County. Right now that's in the testing process. We also use the same exact RIT pack, I think in both couties in the regional cooperative. We've been happy with them. Biggest bonus is we have a local service center in Medford, OR. Don't have to send them off somewhere.
Our Dept uses the Dragger SCBAs, and we all like them. Only complaints is all the batteries they need replacing offten, but other wise to us are a good choice. We used to use the old Scotts, surviveair and still have a couple on one engine as back up.
I am on two departments so I have the oppertunity to use two different types of air packs. At Scottsburg we use the Scott NXG2 it is a great pack. At Johnson we use the MSA and it is also a good pack. The only problem with that pack is the way that u put the resperator on the mask and with a little guide down the nose of the mask. Its hard to get it on. If i had to pick one it would be the Scott. It is a much better pack.
At the city department we use Drager air packs, and I don't really like them at all, but at my Volunteer station we use MSA packs and that is the best pack ever made hands down.
YOu won't be disappointed with the MSA Air packs.
We use MSA's
MSA's, but I've always preferred Scott's.
We use Scott SCBAs the latest version, I have used MSA as well.
ISI, but I prefer Scott any day over anything else...
I've used them all, survivair, Msa, Scott all of them are good. just as long as your still breathing when you get done with them that what matters! it,s personally up to you which one you like
Our department is split. some Scott 2.2 and some NXG2 packs.
Draeger PSS 100, with digital manometer/bodyguard, 6.8 litre/300 bar CFK botlle, connector for rescue mask

MSA Auer BD 96, connector for additional rescue mask, 6.8. litre/300 bar CFK botlle.
