All our guys and girls get overalls (jumpsuits). I kick anyone in bunker gear off my fire ground, they tire too quick then make bad decisions that can get people hurt.

Overalls have reflective tape and are fire retardant ..... not cheap but what price is too much to send the fire fighter home to their family at the end of the incident.

does your department have a GSA acct if so that will be the cheapest place

we use the standard greens and yellow for any wildland fire just for the fact if you have to do some hiking you will kill your self wearing turnout gear. duty uniforms are ok if they meet the NFPA standards. we have to buy are own Wildland boots i currently have hawthorns i have had them for two seasons and they work good. just on a personal note i would stay away from redwing boots.
