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.
FXR turnout gear comes standard with the following features:
Seamless Collar - NFPA approved without the use of a throat strap.
OmniDex Shoulder - Shoulder seams moved inward to natural bend point. Optimal SCBA strap interface eliminates material bunching. No more shoulder lifting your air pack.
Provides unmatched comfort and freedom, virtually eliminating coat rise and sleeve retraction.
DexFlex Knees and Elbows - Pre-bent design provides unrestricted movement.
Comfort Pant - Athletic cut, mid-rise design. Seamless gusset reduces bulk and wear/tear.
