Allows for Shorter Coat Length

With 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.

Fire-Dex Construction

From pattern design and manufacturing to seam construction and inspections, Fire-Dex goes the extra mile to ensure you have gear that fits correctly and works well with other equipment. All custom turnouts come in custom coat lengths, inseams, and sleeve lengths to ensure the best fit.

Below are just a few examples of the attention to detail that is put into the design and manufacturing of Fire-Dex Turnout Gear.

Double Lock Stitching

Fire-Dex uses lock stitching on all major seams, cuffs, and reinforcements, with 4 rows of lock stitch on all reflective trim and hook & loop closure material.

Deep Water Well

Deep Water Wells

Deep sleeve water wells provide a natural glove/sleeve interface, keeping water out of the inside of sleeves.

Superior Pockets

All Bellows Pockets are reinforced with Kevlar® for the best cut resistance. All Radio Pockets are fully lined with moisture barrier, including the pocket flap. All pocket flaps are extra long to ensure complete closure, no matter the bulk inside.

Four Point Liner Tabs

Liner Tabs

Liner retention snap tabs come standard on all Fire-Dex coats to prevent "liner creep-up". Our standard liner tabs at the pant cuff are placed at the front and back to avoid wear between legs.

hydostatic tester

Detailed & Documented Moisture Barrier Seam Testing

We are partnered with both Moisture Barrier suppliers, W.L. Gore and Stedfast, and established a controlled environment for the most effective seam sealing. Every 10th garment is tested!

Is It Worth the Weight? Drop 4lbs with TECGEN71 to Help Reduce Your Risk of Heat Stress  

FXR Turnouts built with a TECGEN71 Outer Shell can contribute to a 4 pound reduction in overall composite weight since it is THE ONLY outer shell capable of providing enough thermal protection and pair with Glide Ice 1- layer or Prism 1-layer (the lightest themal liners on today's market) and pass NFPA 1851 requirements.

Harness Options


I2H Integrated Class II Harness

Designed with the industry’s top PPE equipment experts and renowned firefighter training educators, the I2H is uniquely equipped, easy to don, and features incredible mobility thanks to our FX-R pant design.

What makes the I2H harness the best in its class?
  • Dual-equipped for personal escape and ladder/rescue
  • Pre-installed Class II Kevlar® harness
  • External waist belt for easy adjustment
  • Multiple harness sizes to ensure proper fit
  • Options available for left or right opening
  • Floating D-ring makes it easy to connect to any descent device

The A-frame harness provides proper egress positioning and the best center of gravity while descending. The harness is designed to respond to the user when loaded, but is relaxed and doesn’t interfere with the regular function of the turnout pant when not in use.

Egress Pockets

All Egress Pockets come with a full bellow pocket and a 14” rope pocket tucked away behind the oustide pockets, eliminating the need for bulky external bags. The internal rope pocket design maintains a low profile for the firefighter which helps minimizes catch points and the opportunity for rips, tears and snagging.

Each Egress Pocket is specifically designed to securely hold the descent device specified along with a crosby hook and/or carabiner, keeping them easily accessible while preventing tangling.



The XPEG MULTI was designed with the assistance of one of the top training companies in the fire service. This pocket features a unique angled hook slot that can hold either a crosby or an aluminum hook securely and is angled to make access to the hook easier.

This pocket system also includes a descender cradle with rope slot, a 14”-deep Rope Pocket, and a 5.5”x8.5” bellow pocket.

Designed for use with any of the most popular descent devices, such as RIT, Sterling, Petzl, and CMC.
