Carbon Shield

Considered the ultimate high‑tech fabric for thermal protection and comfort. The fabric simply won’t burn in air. Additionally fabric has excellent moisture regain and wicks moisture away from the skin to the outer shell enabling it to evaporate at a rapid rate. UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition.
