Volcano workers kitted out
23 January 2013
Members of Iceland's voluntary rescue service â€“ Ice- Sar - have been issued with new operational PPE manufactured with GORETEX fabric to protect them as they conduct operations in response to the recent volcanic erupt
The new garments have been supplied by specialist Swedish workwear manufacturer, Taiga and are specially designed to protect rescue service volunteers in one of the world's most challenging environments.
Taiga worked closely with Ice-Sar to develop a suit comprising shell jacket and trousers made of GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric and a jacket and hat made of WINDSTOPPER soft-shell material. The suit is breathable and provides maximum protection against wind and rain with a high degree of comfort.
