More about this product

Product Features

Fire-Dex® USAR Gear provides the durability and protection needed for the rigors of technical rescue.

Dual certified to both NFPA 1999 (Emergency Medical) and NFPA 1951 (Technical Rescue, (2) Rescue & Recovery), our USAR gear is lightweight, breathable, unrestrictive, and features the same quality and durability found in all Fire-Dex® products.

Fire-Dex USAR Gear features a sewn-in, Crosstech® S/R Fabric liner. Crosstech® S/R Fabric is a durable, 2-layer, aramid-based laminate with exceptional abrasion resistance and flame resistance. This liner provides protection from water, blood, bodily fluids and common chemicals. It is also breathable and lightweight, allowing sweat vapor to escape and preventing heat stress.
