TenCate KOMBAT FLEX Ushers in the Next Level of Ergonomic Outer Shell Fabrics. Firefighters can’t afford to choose between comfort and protection. Now, they don’t have to. Fire ground conditions can be more than dangerous and demanding, they can be wildly unpredictable. For firefighters, protection always comes first but sometimes they need to move fast and easily. Engineered to offer an effective blend of solid, flame-resistant protection and ease of movement, KOMBAT FLEX uses proven technology and innovative design to create an outer shell that stands out among the rest. KOMBAT FLEX weighs in at 6.9 osy (235 gsm) making a light yet tough alternative as an outer shell.

Less Weight…Less Stress
