Flight Suits! Best Place To Buy One?

Recommended Posts

I'm all good with where to get standard suits, I've had one from Guardian clothing that lasted so long it's probably fire-promoting by now rather than redardant. Wore it summer & winter. I've had a few company suits from Flight Line as well which did the job but were nothing to write home about.

I was just curious specifically about what you get from Stephan H for the added cost. But anyway I came into some unexpected disposable cash, so I treated myself. Apparently there's quite the lead time though, so I guess fingers crossed my 2-piece arrives in time for fire season?

The Stephan/h website lists these flight suits as mostly made from nylon & polyester, not very fire retardant. My advice would be to read about the British navy personnel who had nylon underwear when their ship caught fire during the falklands war, then buy a fire retardant or cotton flight suit.

They have nomex ones too, but you have to call for pricing. I have a 2 piece in my locker right now

Well, I haven't worn it other than around the house, as it's a lightweight one. And I ordered the pants too long, so I need to get them hemmed. But so far, I think it'll be good! It's very comfy, and the new-style collar isn't nearly as nerdy as I worried it might be. I think I may miss rolling up the sleeves like on my onesie, and it could do with more of a variety of pocket sizes (all the flashlight/pen pockets are identical sizes). I also didn't spring for any "options". I'll check back in once I wear it for a shift or two.
