    A NOMEX lllA fiber and at 98% Aramid and 2% carbon fiber this is the best combo pants I own. I stumbled across these a few years back after the last wildfire in my area. My US Dept of the Interior clothes were pretty wasted and they did not hold up. This design has the needs and construction of a front line Smoke Jumpers Gear a more advanced model than the hourly wage brush chopper receives.

    Being rip stop and Nomex and Kevlar they are a great pant for any rough service enviroment.

    Price? Well if you want to live through a Wildfire then put the money where your ass is.

    BE AWARE fire pants and other fire gear are only washed with Nomex clothing, no cotton in the wash, unless you want to be a flash prepper!!!

    Shop around on ebay and you may find them for a better price.

    If you have never worn Nomex, Kevlar, or other flame resistance treated fabrics, I can say from first hand experience they are hot.

    I have a box full of issued (free) flame resistant uniforms that I won't ever wear. There is a noticeable difference in hot weather between them and a regular 50/50 NYCO blend.

    If you reside in a northern, cool climate, maybe.

    Then you need to give this type a try.

    I have worn the typical non breathing, stiff and prickly clothes of which you speak. Good only in 60 degree weather.

    In fact I have some "issue" gear still in the wrap.

    This stuff if soft and just about as neutral as you can hope for. Summer its like a pair of old levis that just seems to "be there" but is not hot.

    Winter it is more like a warm pair of thin leather driving gloves, not wind proof but also not the chill factor of other stiff treated materials.

    Yup I was happy and surprised.

    I'll grab these to do dangerous work any time, fixing fence, walking in tall grass (snakes) or just working around the place.

    Had them since 08 (clothing tag is date stamped) and they look as good as the day I unboxed them. "Cept they are even softer now.
