Does this outfit make me look fat?



Yeah, okay, so it does. But after all, firefighter clothing is built for protection, not for looks -- it's three layers, and pretty darn padded. I was trying on a new brand that a salesman dropped off for us to test -- just thought I'd throw a pic in for the heck of it.

Most people don't know this, but when actors play firefighters on movies or TV shows, the production people usually remove the inner lining from the gear -- which makes it lighter, and makes the actors look a lot leaner. I wouldn't run into a burning building that way, though!
