Cobra BarriAire™ Gold™ Hoods Critical

BarriAire Gold – Critical Particulate Coverage to the base of the neck, around entire hood. All critical areas of particulate penetration as identified by NFPA have particulate barrier.

Blocks more than 90% of particulates 1 micron in size

Superior Comfort – Increased Protection – Maximum Durability

• Outer layer: PGI proprietary gold FR fabric
• Inner layer: ultra-lightweight, DuPont™ Nomex® Nano-Flex fabric

• Inhibits penetration of harmful particles from asbestos, drywall and soot
• Won’t compromise the firefighter’s ability to communicate within their surroundings

Product Features

  • PGI’s Proprietary Fabric
  • Where you see quilting is where the Particulate Barrier is enclosed
  • Blocks 90% or more of particulate 1 micron or smaller
  • Excellent flame and thermal resistance.
  • Exceptional breathability
  • Inside of fabric wicks moisture from skin through fabric to outer shell where it can evaporate keeping the wearer dry and comfortable.
  • Outer shell has DWR finish which reduces the build-up of toxic residue that can easily be absorbed by non-treated fabric and enhances the release of contaminates in the wash cycle.  Additionally, the DWR finish enables the hood to dry 2 to 3 times faster than non-treated fabric
  • Lightweight – weighs about the same as hoods without a Particulate Barrier.
  • Fabric has a soft hand and is hypoallergenic making it comfortable against the skin.
  • Unlike some Particulate Barrier hoods, PGI’s BarriAire™ Gold hoods have just enough stretch and recovery to allow it to conform well to the head and neck and allow us to make one size fits all sizing
  • Attractive gold color allows you to see when the hood’s soiled and in need of cleaning.
  • Fabric has excellent tensile and tear strength for long wear life
  • Generous cut with a little “ease” built into the design so the hood doesn’t fit skin tight.  This creates a layer of air between the hood and head which improves thermal resistance from flame and heat
  • All sewing and quilting done with CRAQ SPUN AR Meta Aramid thread
  • Extra-long length (23”) front and back makes sure hood stays tucked-in even after laundering shrinkage

More Information

SUGGESTED ORDER – 2 hoods per FF, one to use and one that may be in the wash.

They always need a clean back up hood on hand!
