Outer Shells

The main purpose of the outer shell is to protect the firefighter from direct flame. It also contributes to abrasion and cut protection as well as some thermal protection. Different mills that manufacture outer shell fabric also engineer into their fabric additional attributes, like strength, flexibility, and abrasion resistance.
