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 cross-contamination.
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.
