Selecting Your Gear: Selecting a Style, Features, & Options

Selecting a Style, Features, & Options

There’s a reason why Globe offers more styles of turnouts than anyone else. And with our thousands of options to choose from, you can be sure to get exactly what you need.

Globe is the largest supplier of NFPA-certified turnout gear in the world, and there is no one suit that is best for everyone. Which one is best for you depends on the hazards identified in your Risk Assessment, your evaluation of design and materials, and your budget. And with our thousands of options to choose from, you can be sure to get exactly what you need.

Firefighters are industrial athletes and are often called on to perform their jobs in the most challenging conditions. To perform your best, you need gear that delivers enhanced mobility, improved fit, and long-lasting durability. And don’t forget that it is personal equipment, so style and comfort, although more subjective, are also important. All of these characteristics are hallmarks of Globe gear.

Yes! We can customize any of our styles with thousands of options from our library developed in collaboration with our customers over 130 years. Together with our broad array of materials and colors, we can make over 1.5 million different combinations for you. And of course, we can put on your department’s identification and your name to make it truly personal. Click here to see some of our most popular options.

Size and fit are highly personal and it’s important to us that your gear fits you safely and the way you want it to fit. Taking measurements from your body may or may not get you a size that works for you, but there is nothing like trying on a range of sizes to choose the size that is just right. Globe distributors provide this critical sizing service when you place your order, using try-on sample sets in the style that you choose because you’ll only love our gear if it fits you just right.

Your Globe Distributor specializes in PPE and would be happy to arrange to come to your department to learn more about your needs and show you our most appropriate solutions. Contact your local Globe Distributor.
