The Honeywell Life Guard Hood features a patent-pending design and proven fabrics that provide blocking protection against hazardous particulates. Replacing the traditional “sock hood,” the Life Guard Hood delivers new laboratory-proven levels of particulate-blocking protection with a lighter, more roomy fit that integrates with SCBA and turnout gear to ensure a high level of comfort and safety.

Features of the new Honeywell Life Guard Hood include the ability to block carcinogenic particulates in both air and water; highly-breathable multilayer composite material, coupled with a roomier design that promotes the safe flow of air around a user’s head and neck; balanced thermal protective performance (TPP) and total heat loss (THL) design that supports a drier, breathable, and comfortable wear; and a patented Mask Mate™ face opening that better fits the shape of face pieces and provides a wider field of vision. www.honeywellfirstresponder.com, 800-688-6148
