Lightweight Breathable Comfort
The breathable performance of GORE CHEMPAK selectively permeable fabric helps minimise thermal impact by allowing perspiration vapour (sweat) to escape. The stretch construction of the close-fitting Commando Undergarment provides additional comfort by eliminating the thermal insulating layer that surrounds your body. When compared to traditional carbon suits, the Commando improved heat loss to the environment by more than 20%.
Versatile Design Allowing for Easy Integration
The undergarment’s stretch fabric and unique design maximise its range of motion and comfortable fit, enabling increased mobility and operational effectiveness in traditional and catastrophic environments. Its versatile design enables the undergarment to be easily integrated with other equipment in a variety of ensembles for CBRN response missions such as:
- Technical search and rescue
- Special operations
- Tactical force protection operations
- CBRN identification and detection
- VIP security
- Counter-terrorism at public events
- Consequence management
- Technical decontamination
The Commando allows professionals to operate discretely, while maintaining a ready posture in the event of a terrorist incident. With this new technology federal, state, and local professionals can wear a garment that protects them without alarming the public.
The Commando undergarment worn under a NOMEX flight suit meets the requirements of NFPA 1994, Class 3 Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRN Terrorism incidents. This ensemble is ideal for operations that potentially include toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents below levels not immediately dangerous to life and health as identified in the NFPA standard.
