EVOLUTION FLIGHT SUITS
Choosing Your Nomex Flight Suit
Fit & Comfort
Comfort may sound like a luxury but when you’re flying it’s an essential priority that’s integral to the safety of the plane.
Whether you’re a military pilot or a civilian aviator, the cabin can be a high-pressure environment that gets very cold. Being able to move quickly and freely is essential, with apparel that keeps you warm without being restrictive.
Nomex flight suits are designed with an inherent understanding of how the body moves. This ensures that they don’t restrict movement and allow the wearer complete freedom to stretch and move around as necessary. However, the flight suit simultaneously provides lightweight warmth, providing comfort which is essential to be able to fly the plane safely.
Nomex flight suits are able to be fitted snugly to your body shape, thanks to the array of adjustable components. To have proper freedom of movement, it’s essential that cuffs don’t dig in when you move, but you won’t want them flapping around either. Adjustable cuffs solve this problem for the best possible fit all over.
Size & Quality
If you’ve had low-quality flight suits in the past you may be more used to wearing suits which gape or are uncomfortably tight. Nomex flight suits are available in a number of different sizes, suitable for all body shapes, with cuts that are also designed for women.
Convenience: The original flight suit amounted to a bulky, overweight suit that lacked durability and made it hard for pilots to move in them. These days flight suits, specifically Nomex flight suits, are made with the Nomex material to ensure flexibility and allow wearers to move more easily. The Nomex flight suits are also conveniently equipped with six functional pockets and a two-way zipper which makes the process of taking the suit on and off, a simple task.
Safety: Because Nomex flight suits are most often used by military personnel, safety was a huge concern while it was in the design stages. One of the biggest safety features of this type of flight suits is its flame-resistant material. The interlock technology provided by the Nomex material, helps to keep users safe in case of a fire or minor explosion and greatly increases their chances of survival.
Comfort: As previously mentioned, outdated versions of flight suits were made of heavy materials that made the suits bulky and uncomfortable to wear. The purpose of the heavy material was to keep the suit wearers warm. However suits these days not only provide warmth, but comfort as well and without giving users the feeling of being weighed down. Nomex flight suits are made to provide a glove-like fit and are equipped with an adjustable waist belt as a means to fit various body shapes and sizes. In addition the suit has a breathable design that allows air to escape when the body is overheated but also provides warmth through insulation properties for when the atmosphere is a little cooler.
Quality: Nomex suits have superior quality in relation to virtually any other flight suit manufacturer. These suits are solution-dyed which helps resist fading and discoloration. In addition the Nomex material is sturdy, secure, and constructed with a rip-top fabric that decreases the likelihood of tears and snags.
