Why MSA SCBA: Buddy Lights

Air level indication using colored lights

When air is low, seconds matter. The MSA G1 has the ONLY SCBA on the market where you can see air levels instantly using colored lights on the unit! 4 buddy lights located on the backplate, 2 control modules and a regulator light to help firefighters be seen and providing 360 degree visibility.

Glow-in-the-dark markings and gauges compliment the pack’s LED lighting systems. Buddy lights and different status lights even allow for other members to quickly gauge your air supply simply based on the color of the LEDs displayed around your pack and mask.

Why MSA SCBA: One size fits all

One Size Fits All

Not only is the MSA G1 the only SCBA on the market that offers harness customization to ensure improved comfort and fit, but it is the ONLY unit that has a true swiveling, adjustable lumbar at the hip that manages SCBA weight! By providing an adjustable lumbar pad, you can have a tailored unit with up/down and pivot capabilities that can actually move with you.

Widened, adjustable shoulder straps enhance weight distribution and comfort. Through use of interlocking shoulder straps and strategically placed friction pads, the MSA G1 SCBA provides increased fit and stability while allowing for easy donning and doffing.

Why MSA SCBA: 15 Year GUARANTEED Warranty

Why you should choose MSA G1 SCBA

MSA believes so strongly in G1 SCBA durability that it offers a 15-year warranty on every unit. Not 5 years, or 10 years with the possibility of more; but a guaranteed 15 years of coverage! 15 yeas coverage against manufacturer’s defect or faulty workmanship, including electronics.

Below is an excerpt from warranty document:

Some of MSA G1 SCBA Safety Features

Be Heard

Every MSA G1 SCBA is equipped with electronic voice amplification because high quality fireground communications shouldn’t be optional. With patent-pending design, dual microphones integrated into the regulator eliminate the Darth Vader-like inhalation sound. This unique feature automatically activates and shuts down with the unit.

Shoulder strap-mounted speaker module provides loud and clear communications from the regulator microphone while maintaining low profile to aid in reducing snag points. Every MSA G1 SCBA is equipped with this cutting edge technology.

When Air is Low, Seconds Matter

When air is low and you must access the Universal Air Connection (UAC) for emergency purposes, seconds matter. That’s why MSA invented the patent-pending RIT light to shine a bright white LED on the UAC connection, making it easier to find and connect to a rescue air source. The primary UAC illuminates when End of Service Time Indicator (EOSTI) reaches 35%.
