CrewBoss™ Gen II Dual Compliant Uniform Pant
The DHS APPS (Advanced Personal Protection System) process was modified to develop the new WLFF PPE garment system. An Integrated Process Team (IPT) comprised of experienced wildland firefighters from the USFS and state, county, and city fire departments from California were selected to participate in the program. The IPT validated a risk assessment, defined operational requirements, and selected the materials for the PPE garment system.
Greater thermal protection, a reduction in heat stress, and improved form fit and function of the PPE garment system was the result of this assessment. The new APPS WLFF PPE not only can reduce heat injury rates, but should also increase the operational effectiveness of the wildland firefighter.
Designed to meet and exceed the requirements of DHS, Natick and IPT committees initiative to move forward with a single layer garment system, the Gen II Uniform and Tactical Pant allows you to go from the station to the fireline without changing or adding garments.

ABOUT THE GEN II PROGRAM
The Gen II system was created in conjunction with the US Department of Homeland Security, the Army’s Natick research center, and numerous other government agencies. The goal of the program was to develop garments that could offer optimal protection against the risks faced by modern wildland firefighters. Flame resistance was a priority, but a high emphasis was also placed on breathability to reduce the risk of heat stroke and exhaustion in warm environments.
The program set high standards, all of which are met or exceeded by the CrewBoss Gen II Garment System.
