Globe ATHLETIX™ Turnout Gear
Globe Mfg. Co. Pittsfield, NH Award of Excellence, Best in Category
Firefighter turnout gear, like outerwear in general, is cut larger than the body to accommodate movement and layers under the gear. Typically we add about 10 inches in oversize to a jacket. In addition, we add length and fullness where the body bends so that firefighters won’t be restricted when they move. But this approach makes turnout gear bulky.
