Toxin-resistant firefighter hood


The Life Guard Hood features an innovative design and fabrics that provide better blocking protection against hazardous particulates and toxins than traditional firefighter hoods. It has a lighter, roomier fit that integrates with a firefighter’s self-contained breathing apparatus and other turnout gear. The hood was developed by Honeywell First Responder, whose products are used by 80 percent of the top municipal fire departments in North America.
