BOISE, Idaho — Buck's Bags in Boise is known internationally for their wide range of products that are sold to firefighters, hunters, cowboys and many more. Now, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have switched their manufacturing line to produce gowns and maks for healthcare providers on the front lines.

"Once we're one hundred percent up and running we can provide up to we figure three thousand gowns a week, and masks we could probably do five thousand a week," said Todd Godfrey, general manager of Buck's Bags. "We are looking for more seamstresses to help."

The gowns and masks will be sent to many hospitals in the Pacific Northwest and other companies for their safety.
