Blend was developed in the early 1980’s by PGI to offer a more comfortable and affordable option to 100% Nomex hoods. Due to its price and exceptional comfort it became an instant success easily becoming the most demanded hood blend on the market. Comfort Plus is made of two proven flame resistant fiber work horses- Nomex® and Lenzing FR™. Together they create an exceptionally durable and comfortable flame resistant fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin more effectively than other flame resistant fabrics. The end result is an FR hood that feels cooler in hot environments and warmer in cold environments.  In addition to improved comfort, Comfort Plus hoods offer 18% better thermal resistance than their 100% Nomex counter- part with a TPP of 33.6 vs. 28.5 for 100% Nomex after five washings.  Other properties of the fabric include:

  • Inherently flame resistant
  • Excellent thermal resistance – 33.6 TPP rating after five washings
  • Excellent comfort. Lightweight and soft, no itch or irritation
  • Excellent moisture management – wicks moisture away from skin keeping you drier and more comfortable
