Turnouts with Flexible Elbows The Freedom® Elbow enables you to bend your arm freely and comfortably while keeping your wrists protected. It works in a similar fashion to the bellows underarm construction. A football-shaped insert is set at the back of the elbow. When your arm flexes, the insert expands to eliminate tugging at the sleeve or shoulder.
Radial Inseam and Banded Crotch
Comfortable, Mobile Turnout Pants The elimination of crotch seams reduces tension in the crotch area to give added comfort to your turnout gear. On LION Janesville® pants, a banded insert runs continuously from the top of the knee of one leg, through the crotch and to the top of the opposite knee. In addition to extending the useful life of your pants, it also provides a more comfortable fit. Increased leg circumference increases mobility.
Turnouts with Cushioned, Durable Knees The Freedom® Knee enables a natural flexing motion. It provides a gusset that the knee can fall into when crawling, climbing, bending, kneeling. For added thermal protection, an additional layer of Lite-N-Dri™ cushioning is sewn into the liner at the knee. The padding provided by Lite-N-Dri also adds comfort when kneeling or crawling
Bellows Underarm Construction
Eliminate Turnout Hem Rise Underarm bellows keep your protective envelope intact by reducing hem rise and sleeve travel. Football-shaped bellows are located in the armpits of the coat between the shoulder seam and torso on all three layers (outer shell, moisture barrier and thermal barrier). When you reach forward or overhead, the bellows expand. The expansion keeps other parts of the coat, such as the sleeve and body, from traveling and creating exposure.
