Shell Hood

The Shell Hood has adjustable ratchet headgear attached to a sturdy fiberglass reinforced frame. Providing an excellent range of vision, the window is constructed of 40 mil vinyl permanently sealed to the hood with the use of a 17” X 8” cover window (20 mil thick) resting inside a snap-enclosed pocket for easy replacement. Underarm straps with plastic quick release fittings hold the front and rear bibs close to the body. A standard hang-up loop is included in the design for easy storage. Specially designed options include a perforated airline that provides airflow around the entire inside of the hood (some versions can accommodate a full-face airline respirator if needed) and the option to add headgear to accommodate a hard hat for additional protection. Available in chest length or waist length. The 077-4060 HiGlo Shell Hood design may be in stock and could ship within 2 business days. The remaining designs are manufactured to order.
