TheFireStore.com, the leading online source for firefighting equipment and supplies, provides a way to stay warm AND safe with True North’s DragonWear FR Clothing. The True North Transformer Series delivers maximum flexibility with quick adaptation for changing conditions. And True North’s wide range of Chest Harnesses keeps you in communication without getting in the way.
Coatesville, PA – TheFireStore.com continues equipping firefighters with innovative True North apparel, vest systems and radio harnesses that perform their job without getting in your way.
Now there's a way to stay warm AND safe - the FR DragonFur Fleece 1/4 Zip Job Shirt that combines style with safety. Constructed of no-fade, 12 oz. FR Wind Resist Fleece and features ¼ YKK zip front, 4 pen holders inside the dual-depth chest pocket with Velcro closure, and microphone tabs on both shoulders. Made in USA, this job shirt will continue to look good wash after wash and shift after shift.
The Power Grid 1/4 Zip, Long Sleeve Baselayer Shirt and Baselayer Bottoms provide maximum warmth to help you cope with the most extreme cold. Both the shirt and bottoms are constructed of Power Grid 4-way stretch fabric that offers enhanced comfort and range of motion. The smooth jersey face allows these garments to slide easily under top layers. The fabric also offers excellent warmth, wicking and breathability. The high/low interior grid structure enhances airflow and dry time.
The Aero-Vest is the heart of True North’s Transformer Series. Designed in collaboration with Search & Rescue as well as Incident Command professionals, this system adapts as conditions and needs change. The modular design allows for quick addition or removal of a tool belt, a 3L hydration unit, a Fire Shelter Case or conversion of the Aero from a vest to a set of thigh packs.
The Modular Urban Aero-Vest is constructed of 3-D cooling mesh and features 12 zippered pockets for organization and quick access (includes two pockets with 8 ½” zippered openings) a Universal radio pocket that fits most radios, a detachable F.O.G. case with page protectors and book marks, and two flagging tape dispenser pockets. Converts from vest to two thigh packs in seconds.
The Modular Wildland Aero-Vest was designed by Wildland professionals. In addition to incorporating most of the same features found in the Urban Aero-Vest, this configuration is also Hydration ready (hydration unit sold separately), has a radio pocket with adjustable keeper strap and a single flagging tape dispenser as well as two 2”x4” Velcro patches for ID and a grab/drag handle.
Best of all the foot-print of both Aero-Vest versions minimize heat-trapping, maximize air flow, and provide a greater range of motion than conventional vest designs. All that without sacrificing the functionality of easily accessible pockets, gear loops and clip points that keep gear secure and close at hand.
True North’s Single Universal Radio Harness fits all makes and models of radios and the elastic straps keep radios in place. The zippered front pocket can hold a Kestrel unit, cell phone, GPS or other essentials. A Velcro closure front pocket is ideal for storage of spare batteries or other small items. A half-moon zippered opening allows easy access to main pocket which features an internal organizer pocket. The ergonomic design combines a rounded shape with True North’s proprietary internal suspension so the harness sits comfortably on the chest, without sagging or swinging. The harness can also be mounted directly to True North’s web gear shoulder harness with optional radio chest integration straps.
The Stealth Radio Harness is the coolest radio harness on the planet - literally. With the smallest foot-print of any harness it’s guaranteed to trap the least heat and keep you the most comfortable. The Stealth also converts from a chest harness to a belt harness, or attaches to your pack’s shoulder harness.
