Southern Pines, NC (December, 30 2014) – Made in the USA brand, XGO®, will be adding a new FR Hybrid shirt to their 2015 Flame Retardant collection. This shirt combines the XGO® FR Phase 1 material with Flame Retardant Mesh panels in order to increase breathability, comfort, and stretch.

“Since our Flame Retardant Mesh debuted in 2012, we have had requests from various military branches to combine our two bestselling FR fabrics in order to create a shirt that provides a more breathable FR alternative with the same level of protection, “said Sherry Lyons, XGO® Director of Global Sales.

All XGO® Flame Retardant products, including the new Hybrid, are moisture-wicking and contain an AG-47 silver anti-microbial to help control odor causing bacteria. It will be available for Spring 2015 in Desert Sand through select retailers and online at proxgo.com. MSRP $60.00.

    Love my XGO shirts, we’ll see how much they like RIT dye when I try to make them brown to wear with OCP.

    Why do most FR shirt makers neglect Marine OD?

    • Eddie says:

      Marines are inherently fireproof as they are Devil Dogs.

    • SSD says:

      Becuase the Marines are pretty strict about FR and generally don’t want guys wearing stuff outside of program buys. Having said that, XGO has several Marine issue items.

    $60 for a t shirt. FR technology needs to be affordable as well as athletic. This one is going the wrong way.

    • SSD says:

      FR fabrics are expensive. There are several reasons for this but I think you know what those are. Additionally, MSRP is not what agencies pay.

      • Martinez says:

        Despite cost of fabrics and pricing to the public (MSRP) a t shirt at $60 is a luxury few can afford. The market demand for No Melt No Drip. High Performance. And for full FR base layers currently offers t shirts from. $18 to $ 30. Per unit. There is plenty for those who need protection with limited budgets. A good resource is wild land fire fighting PPE related sites.

          I think XGO offers an FR shirt just for wild land fire fighting. I don’t know if it is the same material as this hybrid but I’m sure it is no melt no drip and high performance. I’ve had nothing but success with my XGO FR shirts.

        • SSD says:

          No melt no drip and FR are not the same thing at all. Additionally, companies that have attempted to market a performance FR base layer aka T-shirt have come to the realization that individuals will not pay the price for them as a private purchase. Not when they are issued. Performance FR fabrics are expansive. No melt no drip are much less costly but the military continues to insist on full FR for the programs of record.
