Bulwark, Realtree tie up for flame-resistant apparel


Bulwark, the world’s largest flame-resistant (FR) apparel brand, entered a new partnership with Realtree, the world’s leading camouflage designer, marketer, and licensor to offer flame resistant shirts called ‘Realtree Xtra Camo’.

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, Bulwark said in a press release said.

“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.

The new Bulwark Realtree Xtra Camo FR shirts are available in grey and khaki, he said, adding like every other Bulwark shirt, this one is designed for form and function.

“Our latest innovation couples our market-proven fabrics with a look our customers want to wear – even when they’re not on the job,” Holcombe said.

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.

With an 88 per cent cotton and 12 per cent nylon blend, it’s comfortable and durable. 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.
