Firefighter Challenge Competition teams to wear DRIFIRE shirts

May '09
DRIFIRE, a leading developer and manufacturer of fire resistant clothing, recently announced that its flame resistant shirts helped teams in the National Firefighter Challenge Competition stay cool and comfortable, allowing them to compete as effectively as possible. DRIFIRE's long-sleeve, silk-weight t-shirts and men's boxer briefs worn in the competition not only protect against flames, but also help keep away sweat, allowing the body to maintain a comfortable temperature.

As one of the premier manufacturers of flame resistant apparel, DRIFIRE is committed to ongoing product innovation to continually develop the best FR garments available. Designed to offer an optimal combination of flame resistance, comfort, and moisture management, DRIFIRE garments offer multi-weight performance with dri-release technology, creating a new era in fabric design. Ideal for users in professions requiring a performance garment for exposure to flames, such as military personnel and firefighters, DRIFIRE garments are available in silk-weight, mid-weight, heavy-weight and fleece weight styles.

"The Firefighter Challenge Competition is one of the toughest in the world, and it is a true test of the functionality and resilience of DRIFIRE's flame resistant garments. We are proud that our fire resistant clothing helped keep competitors comfortable and cool, allowing them to focus on the challenge at hand," says L. Gene Cone, Chief Executive Officer of DRIFIRE.

Because of the intensity and physical requirements of the challenge, competitors often sweat profusely, which can be very uncomfortable if they are not wearing DRIFIRE garments under their heavy gear. Competitors outfitted with DRIFIRE moisture wicking shirts in the Firefighter Challenge Competition state that the shirt's fast drying capability is one of its best features.

In fact, the patented dri-release moisture management technology in DRIFIRE garments is the result of more than three years of intense research on how to make wicking clothing as comfortable as possible. Dri-release garments offer ideal levels of fast-drying and wicking fibers to effectively remove the moisture from the wearer's skin by swiftly moving it through the fabric and releasing it into the air.

In 2009, select Firefighter Challenge Competition teams will be wearing some of DRIFIRE's most innovative fire resistant products. Along with the silk-screened, silk-weight and mid-weight t-shirts and boxers, competitors will also be testing never before released DRIFIRE boxer brief style undergarments.

"The Firefighter Challenge Competition simulates the physical demands that firefighters face every day. I can't think of a better way to test new DRIFIRE products than in literally one of the hottest challenges in the world," says Cone.
