Turnout Gear

When it comes to firefighting, safety is a top concern – but it’s not the only consideration. You also need to make sure that your responders stay comfortable. You need a turnout that offers exceptional thermal protection without limiting your mobility. LION answers that call.

All standard LION turnouts have innovative, ergonomic design through every layer of the protective ensemble so that your gear moves when you do. Our SemperDri™ System reduces water absorption in pants legs, coat cuffs and yoke to keep your working weight lighter. While the Ever-Dry™ Reach System reduces your vulnerability to water, steam, and flame. Plus, our knees are padded with water-resistant FR closed-cell cushioning, Lite-N-Dri™ for thermal protection in this high-compression area. LION turnouts can be customized with additional innovative features to deliver the features, protection and mobility options that are right for you.

STRUCTURAL PROTECTIVE GLOVES

As a first responder, yours are the hands that rescue and protect. You need to retain your dexterity while staying safe so you can do things like operate a hose, hold an axe or save someone’s life. It may just be a pair of gloves, but the stakes can be high. You need to know your hands can meet those needs securely.

Keep them covered with LION Structural Protective Gloves. They are available in a wide range of sizes and are designed to interface with your turnout for better comfort and protection. We offer a full line of head-to-toe protection and have several models of NFPA 1971-certified structural firefighting gloves, as well as extrication and wildlands glove offerings, and we stand behind our products. Each of our structural protective glove models is field-tested with real firefighters and emergency responders.

LION Structural Protective Gloves feature smart details like innovative knuckle padding Lite-N-Dri™ to increase thermal and impact protection in high-heat and high-abrasion areas on the back of hand plus a combination of CROSSTECH® insert and Kovenex® lining for lightweight, flexible and comfortable liquid and thermal protection.
