In the past, to get flame resistance and protection, people had to sacrifice breathability and mobility. For public safety professionals and military personnel, this can be a deadly compromise. In 1999, the founders of Massif, who struggled with this very compromise, set out to find a solution. Massif clothing combines protection with superb fit, breathability and performance. Massif’s flame-resistant clothing features a fabric that does not support combustion, which at least won’t add to burn injuries and can protect from burns by creating a barrier between skin and flame. All Massif gear undergoes rigorous scrutiny. The Oregon-based facility is surrounded by mountains perfect for field-testing and military professionals advise the company on what military operations require. Every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces uses Massif, which should inspire confidence in the clothing’s safety and functionality.
