Honeywell Introduces Turnout Gear that Helps Firefighters Move Around Easier, More Productively During a Fire Incident

Honeywell Pro Fit

Honeywell introduces Pro Fit, the newest iteration of its popular Morning Pride® by Honeywell pant for firefighters. Engineered with an innovative blend of ergonomic features that add flexibility and lightweight strength to the garment, Pro Fit makes it easier for the firefighter to move about the fireground, helping reduce joint stress and fatigue.

The Pro Fit pant was designed to sit just above the hips instead of at the waist, while still providing adequate coverage in the back. The pant maintains quality features from Morning Pride by Honeywell TAILS® including the full range of motion crotch, and adds new features including a knee position that eliminates knee roll and reduced cuff retraction.  Pleated knees and horizontal seaming add flexibility, and the Kevlar®-lined bellows pockets provide cut-resistant strength.

Premium options include lightweight thermal liner using DuPont™ Nano technology and a telescoping water dam offering ease of movement and superior particulate blocking.

“Fire chiefs are always looking for gear that helps to increase the mobility and safety of their firefighters, and this new addition to the Morning Pride by Honeywell lineup does just that,” says Deana Stankowski, product manager, Honeywell First Responder. “With Pro Fit, they’ll find a contemporary, stress-free pant that creates a new standard of performance on the fireground, true to the legacy of Morning Pride’s high-quality tailoring and customization but taken to another level with Honeywell’s innovative product focus and deep engineering resources.”

Morning Pride by Honeywell turnout gear has served thousands of firefighters across the world during its 50-plus years manufacturing legacy in Dayton, Ohio.
