  • Hoods

    hey this sort of off duty but sort of not. What hood do you prefer. Ventilated vs. Non Ventilated. What materials, pbi vs. nomex?

    I don't think the ventilated hoods really make a difference. Simply because you have a helmet on your head anyway keeping heat in. Therefore I just prefer to wear the "non ventilated" hood, if I wear one at all.

      One of those new befangled carbon hoods and sometimes a Reed Hood, it just depends on what info is given by dispatch weather or not the Reed goes on.

          Preferences for materials:

          1) Carbon

          2) Nomex

          3) PBI

          Have used and still own non-ventilated hoods of those three types.

                I use the P84 Hood. It is a combination of Nomex and Kevlar, non vented and is the only hood I have found in 33 years that retains it's elasticity around the face for more than a year. It is an awesome hood.
