KOMBAT™ FLEX balances protection with comfort and flexibility. Using a blend of PBI® and KEVLAR® fibers, it provides exceptional performance and durability.
AGILITY™ material sample
This new KEVLAR®/NOMEX®/PBO blend outer shell from TenCate provides a step up in performance from their ULTRA™ outer shell due to the innovative ENFORCE™ Technology, while being lighter and more flexible.
PIONEER™ material sample
This new KEVLAR®/NOMEX® blend outer shell is even lighter and more flexible but still delivers the strength and durability you need due to TenCate’s innovative ENFORCE™ Technology. If you’re in ADVANCE™ or similar outer shells, you owe it to yourself to check out PIONEER™.
PBI® MAX® material sample
PBI® MAX® is remarkably flexible, lighter weight, and strong. With the proven protection of PBI® and the strength of KEVLAR® Filament Technology, this shell fabric provides incredible flexibility.
ARMOR™ AP material sample
This lightweight shell fabric uses KEVLAR® Filament Technology for added strength and flexibility.
BRIGADE™ 750 (formerly DEFENDER™ 750) material sample
With decades of proven performance, BRIGADE™ 750 still provides basic protection at an affordable price.
ALUMINIZED PBI® material sample
For proximity firefighting environments where radiant heat is encountered, this fabric utilizes a reflective aluminized film laminated to a knit Para-aramid/PBI® blend fabric for thermal stability.

Thermal Liners

CALDURA® NOMEX® NANO material sample
New NOMEX® NANO dramatically reduces the weight and bulk of current turnout gear systems, helping to give firefighters increased mobility and better range of motion. What’s more, NOMEX® NANO features improved total heat loss (THL) compared to typical thermal liners with similar thermal protective performance (TPP), which helps reduce heat stress. Quilted to CALDURA® for remarkable flexibility and light weight.
QUANTUM4i® material sample
PBI® blend apertured batting provides improved thermal protection and lighter weight. COOLDERM™ Technology face cloth provides active moisture wicking, evaporative cooling effect, and flexibility. (Only available with PBI Lightweight Gold Systems)
QUANTUM3D® SL2i material sample
A special waffle design is built into one of the batting layers to trap more air without adding weight, and the new face cloth weave is inherently wicking.
CALDURA® SL2i material sample
This thermal liner has been our most popular when used in combination with many of our high-performance outer shells and our latest designs. The new face cloth helps you slide easily in and out of your turnout gear and the quilted liner is remarkably light and flexible.
DEFENDER® M SL2 material sample
Using the same fiber blend as uniforms worn by the military, DEFENDER® M SL2 provides superior moisture management and comfort.
DEFENDER® M NP material sample
Combining the superior moisture management and comfort of DEFENDER® M with the proven protection and value of a single layer KEVLAR®/NOMEX® needlepunch blend, this new offering makes older technology thermal liners like ARALITE® series obsolete.
GLIDE ICE™ NOMEX® NANO material sample
New NOMEX® NANO dramatically reduces the weight and bulk of current turnout gear systems, helping to give firefighters increased mobility and better range of motion. What’s more, NOMEX® NANO features improved total heat loss (THL) compared to typical thermal liners with similar thermal protective performance (TPP), which helps reduce heat stress. Quilted to the latest low-friction GLIDE ICE™ face cloth for optimum comfort.
GLIDE ICE™ PBI® G2 material sample
GLIDE ICE™ PBI® G2 offers a slicker, more flexible face cloth with an FR® rayon blend for improved hand. Quilted to two apertured batting layers blended with PBI® fiber to reduce weight at equivalent thermal protection. (Only available with PBI® Lightweight Gold™ System.)
GLIDE ICE™ material sample
Low friction, flexibility, and comfort all rolled up in one.
