PBI® Peak 5

The Apex of Performance.

PBI® Peak 5 begins a new phase in the evolution of outer shell fabrics. Weighing in at 5.6 ounces per square yard (190 gsm), PBI® Peak 5 delivers the highest percentage of PBI® fiber currently available in the market. By including the unmatched thermal protection of PBI® combined with the time-tested strength of Kevlar® – it’s an outer shell that delivers a one-two punch of maximum performance.

Engineered with patent-pending ENFORCE™ Technology, PBI® Peak 5 offers firefighters a balanced fabric that is strong throughout the gear but is still lighter in weight to provide a better range of motion as well as reducing the risks of heat stress.

PBI® Peak 5 also provides outstanding thermal protection and is 20% stronger than comparable outer shell fabrics currently available. This revolutionary new outer shell fabric will stand up to abrasion, wear and tear, as well as the harsh working conditions that firefighters face on a daily basis.

  • GROUNDBREAKING DURABILITY. ENFORCE™ Technology harnesses increased levels of fabric strength and abrasion resistance
  • UNCOMPROMISED PROTECTION. PBI® Peak 5 boasts the highest blend percentage of PBI® on the market, giving unmatched thermal stability
  • LIGHTWEIGHT PERFORMANCE. The thermal protection of PBI® paired with the strength of Kevlar® in an ultra-light 5.6-ounce package
  • FEELS GREAT OUT OF THE BAG. A softer touch that’s more comfortable yet unmatched in durability and range-of-motion
