The U.S. Army has selected five garments from Massif Mountain Gear Company's flame-resistant product line for inclusion in the Fire Resistant Environmental Ensemble (FREE). Recognized for quality and performance, the Massif garments will be part of a multi-layering system of cold weather garments designed specifically for aircraft and combat vehicle crew. FREE addresses the need for technically advanced clothing that protects from cold weather and flame hazards without affecting the soldier's performance.

The five Massif garments included in the FREE program are Massif's next generation Elements softshell jacket, pants, and vest, and the all new Massif Elements Lite jacket and pants. These innovative softshell garments provide flame-resistant weather protection for a wide variety of cold and wet weather scenarios without sacrificing comfort or performance.

Massif's Executive Vice President Chris Wasgatt said, "The selection of garments for the FREE cold weather layering system is the culmination of a competitive two-year testing and evaluation process designed to outfit soldiers with the best flame-resistant garments available today. We are extremely proud that five of the core garments chosen for this program are Massif products and will serve our soldiers who operate in some of the world's toughest environments."

Massif works closely with the Armed Services to develop new fabrics and garments specific to the needs of those serving in the military. Massif garments and fabrics are made in the U.S.A. and are currently worn by ground troops, Special Forces, aviators and other military personnel based in Iraq, Afghanistan and other parts of the world. In addition to supplying FREE garments, Massif is also the designer and fabric supplier of the Army's flame-resistant Army Combat Shirt (ACS).

Massif Mountain Gear Company is a world leader in supplying flame-resistant, high performance outdoor apparel to the military, law enforcement, search and rescue professionals, and the wildland firefighting community. Over the past decade Massif has revolutionized the look and feel of flame-resistant clothing with innovative fabrics and forward-thinking designs, offering a new generation of high-end gear that provides protection without sacrificing comfort or performance. Massif is a Tactical Holdings Operations Company.
