DALLAS, Nov. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bulwark, the world's largest flame-resistant (FR) apparel brand, today announced a new partnership with Realtree to offer FR shirts featuring Realtree Xtra Camo.
"Our customers continue to demand the world's most comfortable, reliable and protective FR apparel because they're in hazardous lines of work," said Chris Holcombe, Bulwark, vice president and general manager. "Our latest innovation couples our market-proven fabrics with a look our customers want to wear – even when they're not on the job."
The Xtra in Realtree Xtra stands for extra effectiveness in the field. This new camo pattern blends perfectly year round in a variety of habitats: from the leaf change of fall through winter, then again in early spring before green-out.
Using proprietary printing technology, Realtree layers sharp foreground elements over a progressively ghosted mid-ground and soft background. The versatile camo design includes tree trunks, large and small limbs, leaves of many types and colors, and large open areas.
Like every other Bulwark shirt, this one is designed for form and function.
With an 88 percent cotton and 12 percent nylon blend, it's comfortable and durable. It's category 2, NFPA® 2112 compliant. A gusset side seam provides ease of movement along with a banded topstitched collar. It's topped off with two chest pockets with button flap closers and a sewn-in pencil stall, a placket front with button closure and a tailored sleeve placket, topstitched cuff and straight back yoke. On the inside collar and cuff, you'll find Realtree Xtra Camo print.
The new Bulwark Realtree Xtra Camo FR shirts are available in grey and khaki.
All inquiries can be directed to Angie Wilson, Bulwark, market manager, at Angie_Wilson@vfc.com, 615-565-5358.
