Flight coveralls made of an improved Nomex fire resistant material were evaluated by aviation units in Vietnam. If certain modifications are made, the fire resistant coverall tested is serviceable, maintainable, and acceptable for use by US Army aircrew members in Vietnam. Single layer Nomex has little better fire resistant qualities than chemically treated uniforms. Double-layer Nomex provides a significant increase in protection over other materials, treated or untreated.
