Codet’s Big Bill brand, a manufacturer of work wear for the oil, gas, petrochemical, electrical utility, power generation, mining and industrial markets, has partnered with Polartec to produce a full layering system of high performance garments using Polartec’s flame resistant (FR) fabric technology. This layering system includes baselayer shirts made using Power Dry FR–which it claims to be the industry’s best moisture-managing next-to-skin fabric; midlayer jackets and hoodies use “highly breathable and lightweight” Thermal FR insulation; and outerwear and weather protection garments use Wind Pro FR.
