REDUCE TURNOUT WATER GAIN
Thermal liners on conventional turnout pants have a tendency to absorb water from fire ground activities. Water absorbed at the bottom of the leg will migrate upward, sometimes even beyond the knees. This can make the garment heavy and uncomfortable, contributing to stress during firefighting activities and requiring more drying time between calls. The gravity of the excess weight can also pull down the hems of the pants, causing contact with ground surfaces.
LION has the solution – SemperDri.
Innovative Liner to Reduce Weight
SemperDri™ facecloth and non-woven thermal insulation BOTH molecularly bonded with non-fluoridated DWR used at the lower half of the legs and arms to reduce absorption, staying drier and lighter.
Less weight means more comfort and less stress on you and your gear.
Comparative Field Tests
In comparative field tests, garments using the SemperDri System were noticeably lighter in weight after structural firefighting activities and training exercises involving high volumes of water.
SemperDri material is also standard in the water wells of coat sleeves and in the shoulder/yoke area of coat liners.
