The new Gen 2 Wildland Firefighting Jacket is a new product release for January 2020.
The new Gen 2 Wildland Firefighting Jacket is a new design for 2020 incorporating a new lighter material. Identical in looks to the previous wildland jacket, the properties within the new light weight fabric are inherently fire retardant and can't be "washed out".
The Gen2 Wildland Firefighting jacket has been independently fully certified to Australian Standard AS/NZ 4824: 2006 standard for protective clothing worn during wildland fire fighting activities. This jacket is approved and used by Australian emergency fire services and parks and wildlife.
Although suitable for use in such applications such as road accident rescue and light hazmat clearance, the Wildland Firefighting Jacket's main purpose is designed for wildland firefighting. The single greatest physical risk to an active wildland firefighter on the fire ground is physiological heat stress. That is, the firefighter’s core body temperature rises, leading to possible minor muscle cramps through to deteriorating mental function and ultimately to life threatening heat stroke. The premise for the design of the Wildland Firefighting Jacket is to assist in the minimisation and removal of heat from the firefighter rather than keeping the
heat out from the fire itself.
The primary design feature is the exaggerated full cut resulting in a loose fitting garment. This loose fit allows increased air circulation and the allowance for the human body's natural cooling mechanism to take place, being sweat evaporation. This loose fit likewise increases the radiant heat protection for the wearer. By incorporating fabric that is both absorbent and “breathable”, this cooling of the body is enhanced.

Fitting Tips: All measurements are in cm. If you are unsure of sizing please call us at the showroom on 07 5541 3569 or put your actual chest measurement (in cm) in the comments in your shopping cart. Fire Fighting Jackets are designed to fit loose to allow air flow and protection. It's better to have a slightly larger size than a tight fitting Jacket.
