The level of comfort you get from the GORE Particulate Hood GEN2
has been improved for a more natural feel without compromising
protection. Its level of breathability helps reduce heat stress,
enabling you to wear the hood longer at the fireground.
While exceeding the thermal protection requirements of the NFPA
1971, 2018 Edition, the GORE Particulate Hood GEN2 also exceeds
the Standard’s particulate-blocking requirements with a protective
barrier that blocks more than 99.99 percent of potentially harmful
particulates*. This hood delivers reliable protection throughout the
entire hood — even blocking smoke at critical seams more effectively
than other particulate hoods currently available. At the same time,
its construction is optimized to reduce interference with sounds and
signals on the fireground.
This exceptionally reliable GEN2 hood retains its level of more than
99.99 percent particulate-blocking performance* even after
laundering. Its unique inspection opening enables you to inspect
the entire hood visually, inside and out.
The GEN2 hood has contrasting colors — white or black on the
outside and blue on the inside, helping you to prevent
I was really surprised how much crap my hood blocked from the fires I've been on. After each fire when you wash your hood you can see all the nasty stuff that the hood is blocking. It gives me a great peace of mind.
Great product, used in a few fires so far. Hold up well to heat. Easily cleaned. More breathable than I expected.
