Heavy, bulky, hot turnout gear that fits poorly and impedes movement is a recognized firefighter hazard. Securitex has tackled the problem where it begins, at the design stage, and created UltraMotion, a groundbreaking new turnout gear concept. Ergonomically engineered to be Action Ready, UltraMotion offers the firefighter a full range of motion for unprecedented mobility in all areas of the body. Mobility that shaves seconds off every movement helping to reduce firefighter fatigue and prevent injury.

UltraMotion’s Action Fit Design features include: a tapered athletic design, sidewinder coat pockets, ergonomic arm, leg and seat and lo-rise front/hi-rise back pant account for the firefighter’s full range of movements and provide unprecedented comfort and mobility.

UltraMotions Rapid Action and Rapid Protection features include: the exclusive Securitex single action T-Closer, the Securitex proprietary zip-in liner system, as well as durability reinforcements in the pockets, knee, cuff and other stress points.

The UltraMotion is available in six new pre-configured Action Ready PacksTM designed for specific firefighter applications including – The Urban Warrior, Suburban Tactical, MaxxLite Attack, Deep Assault, Special Ops Training and Command & Control. Each Pack is engineered for optimal performance in specific firefighter operational environments. Pre-selected features were chosen for each of the six Pack configurations based on thorough research and analysis of firefighter’s needs.
