Drawbacks

It’s warm like any other fire PPE. We don’t recommend wearing it in hot environments unless to protect from fire.

If you need something lighter for high intensity work in the heat that is still fire resistant, we recommend the Modacryl FR Buff®. It’s “no melt – no drip”. Just not rated for fire fighting.
