JACKET FEATURES

G-XCEL Jacket

 

 

Free Hanging Throat Tab (Patented)
4-layer throat tab hangs freely away from your neck and out of the way when not deployed. When deployed there is no exposed hook and loop on either the tab or collar. Tab is scooped out across the top with added coverage across the bottom for a precision SCBA mask interface, collar adjustment, and protection.

 

Contoured Collar
Shorter collar height for easy interface with helmets. Inner collar is black Advance™ for all outer shell choices to maintain appearance.

 

Contoured Sleeves
Ergonomically curved sleeves follow the natural shape of your arm to work with you – not against you. Contoured and graded for each jacket size so you always get the right fit.

 

AXTION™ Sleeve (Patented)
Pleats built into the shell and darts in the AXTION™ liner on the front and back of each sleeve provide extra length where you need it for reaching up. This system allows you to raise your arms without restriction and with minimal coat rise.

 

New Length
This new contemporary hip-length jacket is cut 4" longer in the back than the front to fit more like an everyday jacket but with even more overlap coverage on the sides and back. Available in your choice of men's standard 29/33, men's long 32/36, or women's 27/31 for just the right fit.

 

Cargo/Handwarmer Pockets
2" X 8" X 8" semi-bellows expansion pockets hold a lot but don't bulge out in the front. An extra layer of KEVLAR® fabric reinforces the lower half for longer wear. Integral handwarmer pockets lined with NOMEX® fleece are set behind. Pockets still function when used with SCBA. Angled pocket flaps for easy access.

 

Generous Liner Pocket
7" X 9" interior pocket is lined with moisture barrier to keep contents dry. Optional second pocket is available.

 

Telescoping Cuffs
The knit wrister is attached to a telescoping extension sewn to the outer shell which provides increased mobility when reaching with minimal bulk while blocking splash and debris. A layer of neoprene is sewn to the thermal barrier inside the liner behind the trim for added protection.

 

Liner Access Opening
An access opening in the liner hidden under the front facing allows you to check out the condition of the moisture barrier and thermal barrier when you need to.

 

Minimal Coat Rise
Coat rise is the consequence of any restriction when you raise your arms. G-XCEL™ has minimal coat rise as a result of our AXTION™ sleeve and liner.

 

AXTION™ Liner (Patented)
The liner has darts in both the thermal and moisture barriers corresponding to the added length in the shell provided by the AXTION™ sleeve. Snap tabs on the cuff of the liner attach to snap tabs on the shell so there are no metal snaps through the thermal liner and when you take off your jacket, the liner stays connected.

 

High-Temp Polymer Zipper
A strong and easy-to-zip polymer zipper that exceeds the standards and your expectations. Standard closure uses this zipper covered by a quadruple-stitched hook and loop storm flap for less bulk, lower weight, and to allow radio pocket options to be closer to the front of the jacket to avoid SCBA straps. Or choose from many closure options.

 

Reflective Trim and Lettering
We offer a wide choice of trim styles and materials to meet your visibility and identification requirements.

 

YOCCO™ Drag Rescue Device (DRD) (Patented)
The YOCCO™ Drag Rescue Device is designed to provide a quickly deployed system to help rescue a downed firefighter. The DRD strap is hidden between the inner and outer jacket and loops around the upper shoulders. One end of the loop exits through an opening in the outer jacket at the base of the collar covered by a flap. To deploy, open the flap and pull on the strap handle. This action tightens the loop around the victim's torso and gives you and others a more effective way of dragging a firefighter to safety.

 

TRIMTRAX™ Thread Protection System (Patented)
Our patented system of abrasion resistant KEVLAR® cording protects the thread securing our reflective trim from abrasion. Lasts longer than conventional trim stitching so maintenance costs are lower and your gear is in service more often.
