The soft comfortable inside liners (also CarbonX) absorb perspiration, adding to user comfort.

Twin layers of CarbonX mesh at the center ventilation orifice allowing easy air exchange and helps prevent build-up of CO2. The patented, user-friendly design allows the firefighter to insert an activated carbon, low cost disposable particle filter with exhalation valve.

CarbonX is the only inherently non-flammable fabric in the world. This fabric will not burn, ignite, char, shrink or decompose at temperatures up to and exceeding 2600°F, even for extended periods of time. (See FAQ for more info on this fabric)

The Hot Shield weighs 4.0 oz. (112 g), incorporates reflective trim for night time visibility and is classified as an interface component of Wildland PPE. Its performance under fire & smoke has led to acceptance in industries other than wildland firefighting where these hazards are common to the workplace.
