Designed To Adapt

Defender®M is a solid foundation for any military garment in any theatre around the world. TenCate Defender®M was developed to serve as the ideal component to the TenCate family of highly effective, protective fabrics for the military. Combining flame resistance, durability and breathability, Defender®M sets the standard for military fabrics today.

As an everyday performance fabric, Defender®M is lightweight, breathable and uses COOLDERM™ technology to wick moisture and perspiration away from the skin, minimizing discomfort in high-heat environments. 

Inherently FR, this proprietary blend, including Lenzing® FR fiber, was created to give troops an extra margin of protection. Once the heat source is removed, Defender®M extinguishes itself quickly. No matter how many times the uniform is laundered or how long it is worn, the patented FR qualities of TenCate Defender®M will not wash away or wear out
