Ok, this past weekend the state of Missouri had our 25th annual Winter Fire School. I had the awesome pleasure of attending a class by retired Batt. Chief John Mittendorf. In his lecture he showed a picture of a UK firefighter wearing a nomex hood. The unique thing about this particular hood was over the ears, there was mesh or netting of some sort over it. He told us how he was talking to the firefighters there and they love them due to the fact they can still use their ears and thermometers while still being protected on the rest of their head.

I was just curious about who makes them and if the UK brothers on here had any working knowledge of them and their like/dislike. Of course other peoples opinions/experience is most appreciated.


p.s. I did a search and couldn't find anytihing about this.
