Expanded authorization signals growing acceptance of DRIFIRE

DRIFIRE LLC President and Chief Executive Officer L. Gene Cone announced that the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) has significantly expanded its authorization for Naval Aviation Commands, including Marine Aviation Commands, to procure a greater variety of DRIFIRE garments through open purchase or through GSA.

The DRIFIRE Performance and Flame Resistant (FR) Garments that have received approval to date include the Company's silkweight T-shirts and silkweight boxer shorts, both of which were previously authorized for purchase last August, as well as the addition now of silkweight long sleeve T-shirts, silkweight long pants, midweight T-shirts, midweight long sleeve T-shirts, and midweight long pants.

NAVAIR is that part of the United States Navy which provides materiel support for naval aircraft and airborne weapon systems. NAVAIR was established in 1966 as the successor to the Navy's Bureau of Naval Weapons. The organization estimates some 24,000 pilots and support personnel such as re-fuelers, gunmen, and navigators, will be the primary potential adopters of the approved and authorized-for-purchase DRIFIRE Performance FR garments.

Since the initial authorization, DRIFIRE has received countless testimonials from military men and women who have tested the Company's line of Performance FR garments. Among these endorsements are the following:

“… I'm a cobra pilot and so have to fly with fire resistant clothing, and your product is much more comfortable than cotton, especially on the long days.” - LtCol J. Jenkins - CO, HML/A-269
