Will Not Absorb Water
When properly laundered, the Viking turnout gear will not absorb water, creating a huge weight savings. The shell has a moisture resistant coating that will cause water to bead up and run off the fabric, rather than to be absorbed. This coating is heat activated, so proper drying of your gear is important.
Anti-Static Fabric Design
The Titan outer shell is designed to be anti-static. That could make a huge difference in an IDLH atmosphere!
Multiple Fabric Options
As an industry leader in life safety equipment, Viking has a global reach. This allows Viking to hand select the best materials available for their gear. This also gives Viking color options that other manufacturers simply don’t have access to.
Lightweight, Breathable and Comfortable
Exclusive to Viking, the Titan outer shell material provides extraordinary weight savings while allowing better breathability and comfort for the user.
Tired of waiting for your gear to air dry? Wait no more. Not only is Viking turnout gear designed to be dried in the drier, that is their recommendation! The outer shell has a moisture barrier on it that is heat activated. Placing your gear in the drier helps to activate this coating, allowing your gear to repel water.
Freedom of Movement
Do you need to pull up on your pant legs a little bit to step up into the truck? Does your coat feel more like a tuxedo jacket that a t-shirt? There are better options available to you! Viking turnout gear is form fitted, allowing it to move with you and not fight against you, giving you freedom of movement that you probably didn’t realize was even possible.
