New Capt. Jim Fire Hood



There's a new standard in town when it comes to hoods...and that's the New Capt. Jim Fire Hood from Response Protection Corp.

The Capt. Jim Hood offers firefighters tremendous durability and a high level of protection against flame and intense heat. This hood was created by Kevin F. O'Donoghue, the CEO of RPC. Drawing from his 38 years of experience in the fire service, he created a safer and more comfortable hood for firefighters.

The hood is made of a double-layered 60% 6oz Micro Carbon Fiber/40% Kevlar blend that wicks away moisture and steam while providing advanced thermal protection.

The Capt Jim measures 20" long and features an expandable face opening. Right in the center of the hood's crown sits a 3"x7" FR protected vent, which also helps to wick away moisture and keep the head cool while on duty.

This hood is a simple wash---just use plain soap and warm or cool water, then air dry it within 2 hours.
