    Default Inno-tex turnouts

    My department is looking at purchasing new gear and one of the local dealers, who is a career guy from another town, recommended the Inno-tex. It looks like pretty good gear. The stuff we're lookin at has an outer shell made of PBI/Kevlar, thermal liner is Xtra-lite 7.5, and moisture barrier is RT1700. They are manufactured in Canada. Anybody had any experience with this stuff? Any inputs appreciated. Thanks guys and/or gals.

    Somehow we ended up with 2 or 3 suits of Inno-Tex. Really can't say anything bad about it.

    My main set of gear is Inno-Tex (somehow I ended up as a guinea pig). I cannot say anything bad about it other than it takes longer to break in than any other set of gear i've ever used. Other than that, I have not had a bit of problem out of it, no steam burns, no rips, tears, fades or fraying after 3 years of thorough "testing."

    The dealer told us that this stuff is has been around for a while, but not many people know about it. I know nobody around here(NC Iowa) has it. The chief is stuck on Morning Pride but the rest of want to try something new, O the joys of trying to change the chiefs mind.

    Thumbs up

    We recently purchased 25 sets of the Inno-Tex gear and so far we absolutely love it. Granted we donít see a lot of fires, but I use it while instructing and have been in some pretty hot burn building fires. We were told that an engineer for Securitex started Inno-Tex, but Iím not sure if thatís true or not.
