Single Jacket Hose

A single jacket fire hose has one woven polyester jacket glued to the outside of the rubber liner. A single jacket can protect the rubber liner only if the hose is being used for occasionally light use, a temporary job or on a non-abrasive surface such as grass. Single jacket hose can save cost in the right situation. It can also save weight which can be important in applications such as fighting forestry fires. It is a misconception that forestry or wildland fire hose is extremely durable, if you want a durable hose you need double jacket hose.
