Firefighter Turnout Bags

firefighter turnout bagsNiki and Matt Rasor hope to turn out an investment from a Shark when they pitch Firefighter Turnout Bags in Shark Tank episode 816, the American Heroes episode. Matt is a firefighter and one day back in 2008, he asked his wife to remove a big pocket from his turnout coat. She “started getting crafty” and made a little handbag out of the pocket and some old firefighter suspenders. When she brought the bag out in public, people kept asking where she got it, so she decided to start making more for sale.

Firefighters need to get new turnout gear (their outer coats) every ten years, so Niki started collecting the old garb and turning them into purses, packs, duffel bags, and more. She'll even do custom work if you supply her with the materials.

In late 2014, Niki had an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign to boost her business, but it turns out she didn't need it. She ships Firefighter Turnout Bags worldwide and even has a small warehouse. Niki was the first to make this type of bag and her success spawned several ‘knock-off” companies. Firefighter Turnout Bags sell from $30 to $150 depending on the style. The only limitation on sales is finding enough old gear for materials. She likely wants a Shark to help her get the business to the next level.

Will a Shark be fired up about this business?

Firefighter Turnout Bags Shark Tank Recap

Niki and Matt will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Firefighter Turnout Bags will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
