Overall this SCBA is very different from past models. My first impression was that the SCBA was a little heavy but after analyzing the systems you see where the weight has been shifted as an advantage. The G1 harness weighs 15.5 pounds with the battery, 25.5 pounds with a 30 minute 4,500 psi cylinder and the mask weighs just under 1.5 pounds. So, when you lift the harness for the first time it feels a little heavy until you actually strap it on and wear it. The reason it feels like this is because the weight you are used to carrying on your mask shoulder strap (for a PASS, HUD and Voice Amplifier) have all been moved to the harness. You also get a little added weight for the comfort feature of the new adjustable lumbar pad. This SCBA wears nicely and feels very balanced and the features give you a lot of advantages on the fire ground.

BOTTOM LINE: If you get a chance to see this pack do not just look at it and the features. Strap it on and wear it. You need to feel the pack to really understand it’s design.”

About FACE.

The G1 Facepiece eliminates electronic components from the facepiece. By removing added weight that results from housing electronics within the facepiece, the G1 Facepiece reduces stress and fatigue and improves your overall endurance level. This design also means that there are no electronic components on the outside of the facepiece thatmay result in snag and entanglement hazards.What’s more, by eliminating costly electronic components, the price is reduced substantially, allowing personal-issue facepieces to be a cost effective measure. As an added bonus, the facepiece is equipped with cross-contamination prevention to reduce the spread of illness when facepieces are shared. But MSA didn’t stop there. The G1 Facepiece is equipped with input capabilities for our speaker module to provide clear communication, outfitted on every G1 SCBA we manufacture.

The new G1 Facepiece is not only lightweight and compactwith overall low profile design, it’s comfortable and easy to use. Taking the preferred design features of the Ultra Elite Facepiece, including wide field of view and comfortable, robust seal geometry, we’ve taken the G1 SCBA to the next level with an open port to provide low breathing resistance, both on and off air. The G1 Facepiece can help you to conserve energy for when you need it most.

Be HEARD.

Electronic Voice Amplification Shouldn’t Be Optional. Every G1 SCBA is equipped with electronic voice amplification from the factory, becausehigh quality fireground communications shouldn't be optional. With patent-pending design, dual microphones are integrated into the regulator to eradicate amplified inhalation breath. This unique feature automatically activates and shuts down with the unit. Shoulder-mountedspeaker module provides loud and clear communications from the regulator microphone while maintaining low profile to aid in reducing snag points. Every G1 SCBA is equipped with this cutting edge technology, as MSA firmly believes that clear communication should not be optional.

Turn Up the Heat.

Heat Immersion Testing. When it comes to a rugged design that surpasses durability testing, there is nothing more stringent than the Heat Immersion Test that is required for all PASS devices. Not only does the G1 SCBA PASS device make the grade, but it is the ONLY SCBA on the market that also tests the speaker module. The G1 SCBA’s complete electronic system surpassed the Heat Immersion Testing requirements; that means the G1 SCBA will continue to perform or continue to answer the call even when they turn up the heat.

Designed to fit YOUR needs.

Cutting edge technology. The G1 SCBA isan air mask that finallymeets your demands, providing more functionality than ever before.The G1 Control Module has both dual analog and color digital LCD displays, making certain that your status is available at at all times. Auto-start motion control mechanism built into the control module intuitively provides the information you need when you need it. And, thanks to audio and tactile buttons, no matter which button is pressed, your information is displayed. Highly configurable and customizable. The G1 SCBA’s user selectable configurations are an industry first: pressure; time remaining calculation; breathing time; temperature (the ability to set your own temperature alarm); and pressure drop (to alert you to leaks, either primary or secondary.)

What’s more, the control moduleand HUD can be programmed to project information required by your particular specification. But best of all, electronics can be adjusted to the way YOU want. The G1 SCBA provides the ability to configure this device to follow any standard operating procedure, with alarm settings, lights and information provided on the control module. The G1 SCBA … designed for the flexibility you need!

HEADS UP.

Internal HUD display. No electronics? It’s not only possible, it’s true. By placing the headsup display within the regulator, we removed facepiece electronics, resulting in lighter weight, reduced profile, eliminated pairing, no cross talk, and no external contaminates that can often block the HUD view. This new design means that you no longer have to buy HUDs for each facepiece, reducing costs and maintenance. By using revolutionary light pipes, the G1 SCBA heads up display is clear and simple to understand; it’s a HUD system made easy!

Always in Demand.

G1 Mask-Mounted Regulator. The G1 Regulator houses easy-tooperate heads up display and communications, yet is the smallest and lightest regulator available. Easily configured to meet firefighters’ needs, this game-changing G1 Regulator can shut off air flow and start air flow without taking a breath, and release the regulator from the facepiece in one simple move! With no exposed wires and purge cover designed to keep the valve clean, the G1 Regulator is always in DEMAND.

Ergonomics. The G1 SCBA is the only SCBA on the market that offers harness customization to ensure improved comfort, balance and fit. 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. By interlocking localized shoulder strap friction pads, the G1 SCBA helps to provide fit and stability. With localized shoulder strap friction pads, the unit becomes stable on the shoulder while providing ease of donning and doffing. Wires/hoses can be routed to fit YOUR specific needs and easily integrate into standard operating procedures.

The Power of One.

Central Power System. With only one centralized power source, you can use either an alkaline or an industry first rechargeable battery. As the ONLY manufacturer to offer rechargeable batteries, we’ve taken SCBA protection to a whole new level — finally, an SCBA that doesn’t require multiple battery sizes! No need to manage battery types, compartments and change-outs, resulting in lower cost of ownership.

Make a Connection.

Pressure Reducer. Designed to work with quick connect or CGA threaded equipped cylinders, there’s a connection to meet your need. Adding to flexibility are available direct and remote quick connect attachment options. This flexibility makes cylinder change-outs effortless. Pressure reducer accessory ports allow for future upgradeability, including the high pressure Quick Fill® System. And with quick-connect and threaded-connection options and easy upgrades from threaded to quick-connect option, there are few replacement parts. All in all, this unit provides each user with many choices, all of which result in lower cost of ownership.

When Air is Low, Seconds Matter.

Universal Air Connection (UAC).When air is low and you must access the 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. Because when air is low, seconds matter. The primary UAC illuminates when End of Service Time Indicator (EOSTI) reaches 35%. The patent-pending Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) light makes it easy to connect to supplement a fallen firefighter’s air supply. No more fumbling in the dark!

Light where you need it.

Improved visibility. The G1 SCBA is equipped with 360 degrees of three-stage buddy lights, providing increased visibility of your status to those around you. Highly reflective shoulder straps and photoluminescent cylinder provides another visibility level within any environment.

When seconds matter.

Make the connection. Patent-pending RIT light designed to illuminate the Universal Air Connection (UAC) for Quick-Fill System operations, means no more fumbling in the dark when seconds matter!

No Thinking Required.

Buddy light system. Red light, green light, yellow light too, the G1 SCBA is equipped with a resourceful buddy light system that allows the unit’s condition to be viewed from any orientation. The user’s unit status can be determined from any direction and from great distance.
