Living in the country we are responsible to a great degree for our own fire protection and any initial wildfire response, as the closest Cal Fire station is at least a half-hour away. I bought this unit to use while doing brush pile burns and also to keep on hand "just in case". It is durable and well made and the hand pump will throw a stream out about 30 feet with ease. A shower nozzle is included for closer work. Best price on this I found was here at Amazon. Can't say how comfortable it will be wearing it for a few hours or more (and I hope I never have that experience) but it has good wide straps and adjusts easily.
I am replacing a WWII (1940s) vintage 4 gallon civil defense (CD) hand pump fire extinguisher. The Fedco FER501 is quite nice. It is lighter, holds more water & is set up as a back pack. I am using it for home/yard fire protection. We live on 5 acres in a rural area surrounded by woods and fields. We burn off parts of our small field every spring and burn brush from time to time as well as frequent campfires. I bought it a month ago and used it this spring when burning grass. It worked well as expected. Two cautions: 1 - since it is a poly tank it needs to be protected from fire - don't leave it next to the campfire. 2 - the pump is at the end of the hose in the handle mechanism - this will make it more susceptible to freezing compared to my old unit with the pump in the water tank itself. This is an issue in Wisconsin especially in the spring and fall. Overall I am pleased with this unit and plan to use it for at least a of couple decades.
Haven't used it yet for its intended purpose. I prefer it to the bag type because it sits up and is easy to fill. It seems to hold more water so is quite heavy. Very well built.
