Fire Dex Custom 32" FXR Turnout Gear Coat with DRD Device
FXR gear is the only gear in the industry utilizing Active Posture Design™ (APD). Designed together with the world’s best rock climbing and extreme sports clothing designers, APD is a collection of design elements that are specifically designed to minimize firefighter stress and fatigue.
APD focuses on achieving firefighter comfort and mobility through design rather than by oversizing the garment thereby reducing material and bulkiness. APD gets the firefighter in the ready position with design features targeting the center point of a typical firefighter’s full range of motion, thus eliminating the need to fight the gear.
Revolutionizes the way the coat moves and feels. The shoulder seam is moved inward to its natural bend point allowing unrestricted arm movement and virtually eliminates coat rise and sleeve retraction.
OmniDex™ Shoulder Interface with SCBA
Designed to work in conjunction with your SCBA - no material bunching under or around SCBA straps, preventing "shoulder-lifting" your air pack when reaching or crawling.
Less Fabric, Less Weight
A dramatic departure from industry’s usage of “oversizing” of the gear (where firefighters move inside of their gear), FXR utilizes less material resulting in a much lighter garment.
Shell fabric is pleated in for a secure-fitting collar without creating a seam in the liners, compromising the moisture barrier. NFPA compliant without a throat strap, allowing for better interface with the SCBA face mask.
Added pleats bend the sleeve to the natural shape of the arm, providing less restriction in movement.
Arms Forward Design
A combination of coat/sleeve interface and DexFlex Elbow - sleeve are out in front and slightly bent, mimicking the arm's natural ready position.
Allows for Shorter Coat Length
With the dramatic reduction in coat rise, wearers can safely opt for a shorter coat which eliminates the restriction on upper legs (30" coat shown). Reduced coat length also means less fabric and therefore less weight.
