Based off the original Forest Service style brush shirt, the Traditional Brush Shirt is designed for optimal functionality on the most high pressure fire lines. The Traditional Brush Shirt includes features such as; large spade-style pockets with hook and loop closures, as well as hook and loop closures around the cuff to ensure a tight fit around the glove. The Traditional Brush Shirt provides superior personal protection with dependable strength and is lightweight, breathable and inherently flame resistant.
Tried and true, Nomex has been the standard in FR fabrics for half a century. Garments made from Nomex are inherently flame-resistant and won’t melt, drip, or support combustion in the air. The thermal protection offered by Nomex is permanent, and cannot be washed out or worn away.
A key factor in the thermal protection Nomex provides is that it carbonizes and thickens when exposed to intense heat. This increases the protective barrier between the heat source and the skin, minimizing burn injuries. This tough protective barrier stays supple and flexible until it cools, which gives you valuable extra seconds of protection when you need it most.
