    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a garment comprising a mobility-enhancing pleat positioned on the upper-arm portion of a sleeve. The pleat may be configured to move between a closed position, in which an outer layer lies substantially flat against the sleeve, and an open position, in which the outer layer is configured to provide the upper-arm portion of the sleeve with an increased surface area. Due to the increased surface area, the wearer is not restricted when reaching forward or upward and the sleeve is prevented from riding up so as to expose the wrists or lower arms of the wearer. Moreover, when the pleat is in an open position, the interior of the garment is not exposed. Accordingly, the pleat will not compromise a fire-resistant garment.

  • Publication number: 20140331375
    Abstract: A protective garment system fabricated from ballistic textiles having a V50 on 2 grain RCC of at least 300 fps as measured by Mil-Spec 662F provides good ballistic and fragmentary protection, and can be worn in lieu of conventional clothing without discomfort to the wearer. Embodiments overcome prior art ballistic fabric limitations by incorporating novel construction, such as plaiting and/or twill or satin weaving, as well as novel yarn selection, to enable comfortable skin contact, and by applying coatings to improve abrasion resistance, UV resistance, and color acceptance. Embodiments incorporate layers of ballistic fabric in critical areas, either by overlapping protective clothing articles, and/or by incorporating multiple layers of protective fabric into an individual protective garment. Embodiments provide good moisture transport for long term comfort.
