Cobra Ultimate Kermel® and Lenzing® FR Firefighting Hood

30400-00-185084

Cobra Ultimate hoods are double ply and feature extra-long length that covers head, chest, shoulders and shoulder blades for enhanced protection. Flat-stitched seams eliminate bunching and won’t dig into skin. A half inch wide elastic face opening stretches to full 16" to ensure a snug fit around most SCBA masks. UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition.

Fabric Description:

Inherently flame-resistant blend of two exceptionally soft and comfortable fibers. Fabric blend offers excellent thermal insulation, providing efficient protection from heat, even in lighter weights. Interlock knit gives the fabric the finest hand and smoothest surfaces of all knits. Due to its low modulus, Kermel® fiber is silk-soft to the touch, making hoods or base layers made from it extremely comfortable. Both the Kermel® and Lenzing FR® fibers are solution-dyed navy blue during the manufacturing process, making the color an inherent part of the yarn itself, eliminating fading due to UV exposure or through repeated washing and drying. Additionally, the fabric has excellent pill and abrasion resistance, keeping the hoods or base layers looking new, even after prolonged use and repeated launderings.
