Fire Technology

Wet turnout gear is heavy & makes moving difficult

We engineered IsoDri to reduce water intake, helping your turnout gear stay lighter and less vulnerable to heat. Optimum moisture management comes from a thermal liner that both wicks and sheds water. IsoDri® features a facecloth that wicks perspiration which disperses the moisture for faster drying. The layer(s) of DuPont™ Nomex® E-89™ treated with Teflon® F refuse to draw in the moisture and resist absorption, allowing the thermal barrier to function as designed. DuPont Nomex E-89 based thermal liners are made from lightweight and durable nonwoven fabrics and fibers available only from DuPont™.

In addition, IsoDri® thermal liners using apertured AraFlo® promote higher air permeability than other systems and complement state-of-the-art moisture barriers such as CROSSTECH® Moisture Barriers.


LION’S exclusive CenterCut PLUS with GORE-TEX Barrier Technology provides turnout safety, comfort and flexibility in a lightweight package. ​

With a new level of thermal protection never seen before, CenterCut PLUS reduces heat stress and provides up to 30% more sustained thermal protection (when wet) than a conventional liner system in a working fire, while keeping your turnout drier. 

Meets NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition standard.

"Why LION? I have interacted with firefighter survival equipment manufacturers for over four decades, but I haven't met any that come close to LION with their sincere and proven interest in understanding (aka LISTENING) to what we, firefighters, genuinely need. Their endless pursuit to listen to the "voices of firefighters" and then utilizing the latest proven firefighting research results in bunker gear that supports us in best taking care of those who need us, as well as each other. From their demonstrated commitment in providing us with what we genuinely need to do the job, to their full and hands on involvement (in research and fiscal support) with the battle to reduce firefighter cancer, LION isn't just words- they are proven action with impressive results."

Billy Goldfeder | Deputy Fire Chief Loveland-Symmes Fire Department

"Recently, the Baton Rouge Fire Department accepted delivery of the ITS Xtreme fire extinguisher training prop and we have hit the ground running. We have trained over 200 people in the proper use of a fire extinguisher in approximately 6 weeks. This new technology is leaps and bounds better and more efficient than the old training method of the burn pan and carbon dioxide extinguishers. We are able to take full advantage of the ability to recharge the extinguishers onsite, thereby allowing us to reach more people effectively. This unit is exponentially easier to setup, use and maintain than previous methods."

Clint L. Sanchez | Baton Rouge Fire Department

"When you combine ease of use, quick set up and tear down time, actual training time, and SAFETY of this training system, there is nothing out there comparable."

George Ostrom | Safety Asst, AMRI Global

"The customer service has been awesome! I did have a problem with one of the fire extinguishers when it was first delivered. I made one phone call and spoke with a technician who immediately sent out a brand new extinguisher. They have contacted me often to make sure that I was completely satisfied and wasn’t having any further problems. It’s not too often that you can not only get a great product, but also great service. I would highly recommend it to others."

Denita Lynch | High Point Fire Department

"I have trained about 125 employees for one company, with great success. The system is very easy to set up, as well as to operate."

Pat Patterson | President LAAP, Inc.

"Thanks to [LION], we have directly cut over $1,000 annually from our contracted fire training and since we have been able to easily train staff, the system has paid for itself; given the cost of contracting out this training to the number of staff we trained ourselves."

Dylan Hayes | Disaster Response Manager, Seattle Children’s Hospital
