Flame-Resistant Technology and Comfortable Fabric Provide Super Smart Protection
Radcliff, KY (October 17, 2006) - U.S. Cavalry, the world’s leading multi-channel merchant of military, law enforcement and homeland security equipment, is introducing a new line of flame-resistant clothing for the military, tactical or outdoor adventurer. XGO™, the newest brand from Longworth Industries, manufacturers of PolarMAX®, features clothing with Acclimate® F/R technology that helps protect the wearer against flash burn injuries in a combat situation. XGO™ flame-resistant garments increase the protection degree for a short duration by staying intact when exposed to short-duration flame. This protection stems from the modacrylic fiber in the fabric which, when ignited, releases a small amount of inert gas. This gas intercepts oxygen, depriving the flame of its source of energy. Thus, the fire is extinguished. The flame resistance cannot be washed out of the fabric. FR Rayon (20%) is added to the clothing providing a soft, comfortable fit.
Another performance advantage is the addition of Scent Prevent™ in the construction of the flame-resistant garments. The XGO™ Flame-Resistant clothing with antimicrobial properties is highly breathable, effectively wicking away moisture and perspiration from the body. Especially designed with soldiers and tactical operators in mind, the new line up of short and long sleeve t-shirts, pants with fly, boxers, and a balaclava all feature a flat, clean seam construction which eliminates chaffing from pack straps or body armor. Shirts and the balaclava are also constructed with 2 inches of extra length for that “stay-tucked” performance during high-stress situations. Available in Foliage Green, Desert Sand or Black, the new XGO™ t-shirts, pants, boxers and balaclava can be found online at www.uscav.com.
