Comfortable Flame Resistant Clothing Manufacturer DRIFIRE® Announces New Lightweight Relaxed Fit™ T-Shirt

Performance Clothing Manufacturer and Retailer DRIFIRE Has Added a New Design and Fit of Its 5.4 oz. Lightweight Moisture Wicking Shirt to Its Range of Flame Resistant Clothes

COLUMBUS, GA--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - Popular manufacturer and retailer of comfortable flame resistant clothes, DRIFIRE, is set to launch a newly designed fit to its classic patented fabric blend categorized as a lightweight t-shirt.

DRIFIRE's newly designed "relaxed technical fit" fits more like a traditional t-shirt with more room and movement in the torso area. Apart from its lightweight design, the new FR shirt has a number of excellent features for added protection and comfort. Its seamless structure makes it extremely comfortable for long hours of wear. The "relaxed cut" allows for more movement, bending, stretching and lifting and does not easily come un-tucked from pants.

DRIFIRE's traditional t-shirt design for the lightweight fabric is more of an athletic cut that tapers the torso, and fits snug to the body like traditional performance wear with off-point flat lock seams.

"Comfort is just as important as protection when it comes to FR clothes. The new DRIFIRE lightweight t-shirt has all the safety bonuses a DRIFIRE product guarantees, and its new relaxed technical fit and seamless finish will definitely be appreciated. Our customers find it very comfortable, especially when working long hours," says L. Gene Cone, president of DRIFIRE (

As one of the leading manufacturers and retailers of flame resistant and performance clothing, DRIFIRE is committed to ongoing product innovation and continually develops the best products in the market. The garments are designed to offer an optimal combination of flame resistance, comfort and moisture management.

The flame resistant, moisture wicking shirt is fast drying and manufactured from the patented DRIFIRE blend. The shirt fabric is extremely soft and has excellent color retention over the life of the garment. The 5.4 oz. shirt has an arc rating of 4.5 cal/cm2 (Ebt) and its flame resistance and arc protection are also permanent features of the garment. In addition to providing flame and arc protection, the shirt also offers antimicrobial protection to the wearer by preventing bacteria build up and reducing odor.

"We believe the perfect audience for the new and improved lightweight t-shirt is the military, special law enforcement teams such as SWAT and tactical response, as well as electric utilities professionals. These DRIFIRE garments are designed to be useful for several high-energy and high-risk occupations, who are simply seeking quality performance gear," says Cone.

The new t-shirt is available in both short and long sleeves and comes in desert sand, navy and black. It will be available for sale starting September 28, 2009.
