This high-quality SCBA provides comfortable, outstanding respiratory protection. Ruggedly reliable and flexible, it's a popular choice for a wide range of maintenance or rescue operations, including firefighting. Designed to reduce stress and fatigue. The ergonomically designed and optimally balanced AirMaXX backplate is adjustable to fit all body sizes.

Based on decades of experience, we also offer two SCBA presets: AirMaXX & eXXtreme – configured systems for the most common applications.

For high-frequency and extended SCBA wear, maximum user comfort translates directly into increased performance and good health. The AirMaXX SCBA preset combines premium ergonomic features with advanced technology to provide the best experience in SCBA wearability available today. If you are using your SCBA frequently, for long periods at a time or require absolute concentration in your work, the AirMaXX is the system of choice.

The continuous exposure to flames and heat from recurring hard training takes an especially hard toll on equipment. The eXXtreme preset utilizes special materials to reduce maintenance and cost of ownership of critical components that would otherwise require frequent replacement in such extreme applications. Trainers and others who work in repeated high-heat and flame circumstances choose eXXtreme.
