More about this product
FXR Proximity is fully customizable and is built to order. You can create your own custom set in FireWriter2 and choose from all of the features and options that are available for NFPA 1971 Proximity-rated turnouts.
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.
All of the FXR pattern features shown below are incorporated into the gear to achieve Active Posture Design™.
