Fire-Dex has redesigned their FX™ gear to be unlike anything else on the market. The new FX-R coat has less fabric, weighs less, and allows for a better range of motion.
The new, patent-pending OmniDex Cut has moved the shoulder-sleeve interface inward to the natural bend-point of the shoulder. Moving the shoulder inward has revolutionized the way the coat moves with the body. The weight of the coat is no longer lifted when the wearer lifts their arms. Because the coat is no longer being lifted by the wearer, the air pack is also able to stay in its proper place and not be shoulder-pressed when reaching upward. The OmniDex Cut has also dramatically reduced the rise of the coat when reaching as well. This revolutionary cut has created a coat that moves like the human body does, eliminating the need for a back pleat and reducing the size of the sleeve pipe; this has reduced bulk, the amount of fabric, and therefore weight of the coat too.
The FX-R collar now includes a pleat in the shell fabric for a more secure fit while still allowing for an uncompromised, seamless moisture barrier. The FX-R collar is NFPA compliant without a throat strap, allowing for better interface with the SCBA face mask.
FX-R gear still includes some tried-and-true design features such as the DexFlex Elbow, DexFlex Knee, and the seamless crotch gusset and is fully customizable with a wide variety of fabrics, pockets, and other features and options.
