It took hundreds of hours of interviews with the nation's toughest firefighters, breakthroughs in ergonomic design from a renowned university professor, and the engineering skills of the nation's most experienced manufacturer to develop G-XTREME™ - the most advanced turnout gear ever.
Built not only to provide maximum protection and durability, but also designed to move the way the human body moves - without restriction - enabling you to push the limits of performance, with less stress and less fatigue.
Step up or kneel down without restriction. The revolutionary G-XTREME™ pants allow for the added length you need in the knee and seat. Move your arms forward freely. Our AXTION™ back provides added length across your back for you to work in front of you without restriction. Reach up with no constraint. G-XTREME™ adds length under the sleeve and attaches the wrister to the liner so that you move freely. The list of design enhancements goes on and on.
4-layer throat tab hangs freely away from your neck and out of the way when not deployed. When deployed there is no exposed VELCRO® on either the tab or collar. Tab is scooped out across the top with added coverage across the bottom for a precision SCBA mask interface, collar adjustment, and protection.
Unmatched for comfort and protection, the tailored 2-piece construction is used in all 4 layers of the collar with 4 rows of stitching on the underside shell layer maintaining the ergonomic shape when the collar is flipped up or laying down.
Ergonomically curved sleeves follow the natural shape of your arm to work with you – not against you. Contoured and graded for each jacket size so you always get the right fit.
Pleats built into the shell and darts in the AXTION™ Liner on the front and back of each sleeve provide extra length where you need it for reaching up. Together with the AXTION™ Back and Liner, this system allows you to raise your arms without restriction and with minimal coat rise.
8" X 8" X 2" expansion pockets have an extra layer of shell material to reinforce the lower half for longer wear. Integral handwarmer pockets lined with NOMEX® fleece are set behind. Pockets still function when used with SCBA.
Finally, a strong and easy-to-zip polymer zipper that exceeds the standards and your expectations. Standard closure uses this new zipper covered by a quadruple-stitched VELCRO® storm flap for less bulk, lower weight, and to allow radio pocket options to be closer to the front of the jacket to avoid SCBA straps. Or choose from many closure options.
Storm flap and inside facings are lined with breathable moisture barrier material for improved ventilation of critical body core.
The liner has darts in the moisture barrier and pleats in the thermal barrier corresponding to the added length in the shell provided by the AXTION™ back and sleeves. Liner is tailored to fit at the waist for less bulk when the SCBA belt is cinched up. Wristers are attached to the liner so that there is less restriction when reaching. When you take off the jacket, the liner stays connected to the cuff with 4 hidden snaps.
The moisture barrier and the thermal barrier separate inside the collar to allow you to check out the condition of the layers when you need to. The moisture barrier extends high up into the collar for enhanced waterproof integrity. VELCRO® secures the moisture barrier to the outer collar and the thermal barrier to the inner collar for independent movement without restriction. When removed for laundering, the layers fasten together to protect the liner for contamination and damage.
Full-length expansion pleats on the shell work with the AXTION™ Liner to provide unrestricted movement with or without an SCBA.
High compression areas get added layers of your specified thermal liner material for greater conductive compressive heat esistance (CCHR). Extra-large enhancements extend 7" down the back and 5" down the front of the jacket.
Extra-deep 5" telescoping sleeve wells keep water out, interface with all glove styles, and add additional thermal protection. The knit wrister is attached to the liner for increased mobility when reaching. And the inner cuff adjusts with elastic and VELCRO® for a "just right" fit.
Men's sizes are available in either 32" or 35" back lengths. Women's sizes come with a standard 29" back length.
7" X 9" interior pocket is lined with moisture barrier to keep contents dry. Optional second pocket is available.
The YOCCO™ Drag Rescue Device is designed to provide a quickly deployed system to help rescue a downed firefighter. The DRD strap is hidden between the inner and outer jacket and loops around the upper shoulders. One end of the loop exits through an opening in the outer jacket at the base of the collar covered by a flap. to deploy, open the flap and pull on the strap handle. This action tightens the loop around the victim's torso and gives you and others a more effective way of dragging a firefighter to safety
