Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology
Since it offers the lowest resistance to the transfer of sweat vapor through it, the GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® PARALLON® liner system offers the most breathable performance.
When laminated to a flame-resistant material, the technology has been proven to withstand high heat exposures and still deliver excellent breathability and reliable protective performance.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® PARALLON® product technology is engineered for penetration resistance to pathogens found in blood and body fluids.
The durably waterproof GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® PARALLON® liner system resists liquids and water from entering from the outside.
The performance of traditional turnout gear usually requires a tradeoff between thermal protection and breathability. Increasing one typically means giving up some aspect of the other. Now it’s possible to achieve unparalleled levels of breathability, while also preventing serious drops in thermal protection that can occur as your gear gets wet, particularly from sweat. This new level of breathability and enhanced thermal protection is only achievable with the GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® PARALLON® liner system — a unique multi-barrier liner system that replaces the moisture barrier and thermal liner in convention gear.
A new level of breathability beyond what is available today, and thermal protection is maintained better when firefighters' gear gets wet.
