Survitec manufacturers a large number of lightweight, sanitary and functional under garments for use in a range of aircrew clothing schedules. The material from which the underwear is constructed is lightweight. Whilst it has a similar feel and the same drape qualities as conventional cotton underwear, Survitec Functional Underwear has superior wicking capabilities and transports perspiration away from the skin to keep the body dry.
The material is inherently flame-retardant, providing greatly enhanced flame protection compared with conventional cotton. In addition, the fibre construction exhibits excellent resilience to laundering and requires no special cleaning processes. The Functional Underwear's seam construction is optimised to optimise comfort for wearers. Garments include Longie, Shortie, and Thermal Protective Layer. Male and female garments are available.
