Gen 2 Flame Resistant Advanced Air Crew Ensemble (AACE)

Jacket Part# 1024-AACEJ
Pant Part# 1025-AACEP

The next generation Advanced Air-Crew Ensemble (AACE) shares all fundamental appearance and fit characteristics with existing DOD utility uniforms, while incorporating design features essential to operation on non-ejection aviation platforms — such as zippered pocket closures and the elimination of close quarter snag hazards.

The AACE is constructed from the latest state-of-the-art flame-resistant fabrics chosen for their exceptional protection, light weight, durability, colorfastness and comfort. These fabrics represent the latest advancements in protective textile technology and meet or exceed all DOD standards for flame resistance and no melt/drip.

The AACE’s unique top-to-bottom attachment feature protects the wearer from flame and thermal threats. Its revolutionary detachable design allows for improved dexterity and increased air-flow, as well as removal of the jacket while not in operation.
