Time-Tested, Tri-Certified

Pioneer™ was the first outer shell from TenCate Protective Fabrics that featured ENFORCE™ Technology. A more economical option, Pioneer™ is an outer shell that delivers enhanced strength in a lightweight outer shell. A highly engineered, innovative twill weave ensures a good range and ease of motion that firefighters need on the job. Pioneer™ is designed to be 10 percent lighter than comparable outer shells while still delivering the strength and durability that firefighters have come to expect from TenCate.

 Pioneer weighs in at 6.6 osy. Pioneer™ with ENFORCE™ Technology has a distinctive appearance unlike any other outer shell fabric available on the market and is offered in a wide variety of colors including Light Gold, Dark Gold, Yellow, Spruce Green, Black and Khaki.
