Multi-purpose gear that lets you switch from handling technical rescue/extrication or EMS tasks to fighting wildland fires simply by changing the lining.

Technical Rescue and Extrication

The VIKING SHIELD garment is a flexible solution that can be adjusted according to the work at hand. For extrication operations the GORE CROSSTECH SR-liner is in place to provide protection against water infiltration, bloodborne pathogens, and chemicals. Certified according to NFPA 1951.

Optional Bloodborne Pathogen Protection

First responders are particularly at risk for exposure to bloodborne pathogens and other bodily fluids at the scene. VIKING Shield is constructed to be waterproof, breathable and bloodborne pathogen-resistant to protect you from potential line-of-duty hazards.
