Protex Karvin Gen 2 Wildland Firefighting Trouser Pants
The new Gen 2 Wildland Firefighting Trouser Pants are a new design for 2020 incorporating a new lighter material with a full elastic waist band. Identical in looks to the Gen 1 Wildland Trouser Pants, the properties within the new light weight fabric are inherently fire retardant and can't be "washed out". Independently certified to Australian Standard AS/NZ 4824: 2006 standard for protective clothing worn during wildland fire fighting activities. These trousers are 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 Trousers 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 Trousers are 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 the new Nomex / Lenzing blend, the fabric is lightweight, absorbent and “breathable”, thus cooling of the body is enhanced.
