VIKING Life-Saving Equipment triple-layered, lightweight firefighting hoods are constructed with a paper-thin layer of DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex between layers of viscose. DuPont’s material acts as a barrier that filters out particles more than 100 times smaller than the human eye can see while simultaneously providing high breathability for comfort.

At the same time, the hoods reportedly provide a 25 percent improvement in thermal protection performance (TPP) compared with conventional FR knit materials. This means greater protection of the face and neck region, where a hood is usually the single line of defense. At the same time, the hood is designed to fit comfortably under the helmet. www.VIKING-fire.com, 757-855-2233
