The Same Technology That Protects U.S. Troops Around The World

No matter where the line is drawn, Defender® M SL2 can take the heat. There’s always action on the front line. Sometimes, the front lines are closer than you think. Making use of the FR technology and engineering that goes into textiles that protect American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, TenCate Protective Fabrics offers firefighters the same protection in an advanced thermal liner. Defender® M SL2 with COOLDERM™ Technology delivers a thermal liner that firefighters can be proud to wear. A combination of two layers of spun-lace batting make this thermal liner lightweight and easy to wear.

Providing a better range of movement and an excellent balance of TPP and THL performance, Defender® M SL2 features a facecloth with COOLDERM™ Technology that pulls moisture away from the skin for quick drying. Available in Brass and Camouflage facecloths, Defender® M SL2 can give an ensemble a unique appearance as well as long-lasting thermal protection.
