NAVAIR Approves Massif’s 2-Piece Flight Suit-Military

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Based on a recent compelling need from the fleet, NAVAIR pulled out all of the stops to quickly approve the Sage Green version of Massif’s 2-Piece Flight Suit-Military, for use within the US Navy and Marine Corps.

Manufactured from Burlington’s Sigma 4-Star fabric*, Massif developed a patented (U.S. Patent 9,015,864) attachment system which unites the two components together, allowing them to protect just like a flight coverall, leaving no exposed areas at the waist. This two-part system combines elastic loops found inside the Jacket with Velcro belt loops on the Pant which are passed through the loops.

In addition to using a great fabric, Massif worked with the user community to incorporate features across multiple branches and multiple platforms. There are lots of little details. For starters, it’s a good looking uniform, offering an athletic cut. They’ve also moved seams away from high wear areas at the shoulders, seat and down the front of the legs; areas that can irritate during a long crew day, particularly in hot environments.

There are different Velcro configurations for different user groups. All of the pocket zippers feature pull tabs and the left upper arm pocket incorporates a pen slot.

Another common feature for both jacket and pant are the mesh-lined pockets for heat mitigation. This also speeds up drying.

Finally, the lower legs feature longer donning and doffing zippers than I’ve seen on other suits.

Massif – Caldera Windshirt

Friday, November 4th, 2016

The Caldera Windshirt from Massif is an FR performance garment unlike anything else on the market. I’ve had one for several months. While it was a bit much for me during Virginia’s humid summers, now that Fall has arrived, it is an excellent garment. Don’t get me wrong, it’s surprisingly breathable, but this isn’t the kind of thing I’d wear during oppressive humidity. This is a studio shot of the Caldera Windshirt, but it shows how it is cut. It can be worn as an outer layer, or by itself.

The Caldera Wind Shirt is constructed from two different Massif fabrics.

The Battleskin fabric is used for the torso. It is durable, yet breathable and FR. Their SABA fabric used for the sleeves and upper chest, is a revolutionary new two-layer laminate system that combines proprietary FR processes with unique knit structures. Massif’s SABA fabric is lightweight, has extremely high breathability, and an advanced Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment, making it perfect for under armor applications and advanced layering systems. The proprietary knitted nylon face has an extremely smooth hand, adding to its next-to-skin comfort and enabling quiet operation.

The Caldera Windshirt has a similar construction to the Army Combat Shirt and can be worn with lightweight base layers, mid-weight base layers, or as a stand-alone garment for year round use.

It has a 1/4 Zip neck allows for easy donning and doffing, along with easy ventilation.

I like the flat seams used on the shoulders which cut down on chaffing.

In addition to internal mesh elbow pad pockets, the Caldera features shoulder pockets with mesh backers for ventilation, a pen pocket on the left forearm and adjustable wrist cuffs.

Finally, there are elastic thumb loops inside the cuffs. These stay out of the way, if you’re not using them.

Offered in MultiCam, sizes XS-XXXL.
