Our story – from decommissioned firefighter hoses to bags & accessories

Jake Starr was a firefighter, and the intimate knowledge of the strength and the rigidity of the fire hoses is what led him to create Recycled Firefighters and start using decommissioned hoses in a range of products. Now, we make tough and long-lasting firefighter bags and accessories for sale that look great, protect your belongings, and guarantee many years of dependable use. From fighting fire to sewing fire hoses, we’ve succeeded in making USA-handcrafted products available to everyone. Read more
