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.
OmniDex™ ShoulderRevolutionizes the way the coat moves and feels. 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 SCBADesigned 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 WeightDramatic 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.
Seamless CollarShell 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.
DexFlex™ ElbowsAdded pleats bend the sleeve to the natural shape of the arm, providing less restriction in movement.
Arms Forward DesignA 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 LengthWith the dramatic reduction in coat rise, wearers can safely opt for a shorter coat which eliminates restriction on upper legs (30" coat shown). Reduced coat length also means less fabric and therefore less weight.
Athletic Cut PantMid-rise pant with angled leg design to fit in a forward firefighting position, allowing freedom of movement that extends beyond the knee. This ergonomic design is pattered to fit and move with the wearer, rather than adding extra fabric (and weight) for the wearer to move around inside the garment.
Comfort InseamReplaces the standard 4-way seam in the crotch with a seamless gusset to reduce bulk and wear & tear. Having a gusset rather than seams where the legs meet decreases the likelihood of split pants and reduces stress, abrasion and wear on the liners.
DexFlex™ KneesIn addition to the Athletic Cut pattern of the pant, pleats are added to the seams on either side of the knee to bend the pant in to the natural shape of the leg, reducing resistance when bending the knee. Combined, these pattern features allow the wearer to move freely and the ability to step up without having to lift the pant leg first.
