he 2002 Reed Hood is the newest and most up-to-date design from the legendary Captain Clifford Reed. It has 3 layers of protection: 7.5 Bronze PBI, CROSSTECH on Nomex facecloth moisture barrier and Navy Nomex fleece lining. The 2002 Reed Hood offers the very high traditional Reed Hood levels of insulation but with two important advancements: Improved patterning and constructioning for a better "lay" on the body and better helmet interface and the superior comfort and moisture management properties of fleece, but Nomex to deliver flame resistance and thermal stability as well.

    This hood is not for rookies. It provides you with so much more protection. It is a must for live burn instructors! I swear by mine! I use it it on all live burns (I do watch and listen to the less fortunate sock hood wearers) I was able to get a good deal from a friend....he bought it now and then never wore it so I got it for $25. I would recommend putting your coat over it...don't wear it on the outside or over your coat.

    I love this hood!! At first when I started using it I was a little apprehensive about using one, but i had no choice being that it was invented by Houston FD and I work for Houston. Its not for everybody and I will be the first to admit that you definately can take a lot more heat wearing it. Just my 2 cents!!
