Winter-proof your ears
Howard Leight’s new Polar Hood is an earmuff accessory designed to provide optimal attenuation and hearing protection for workers exposed to cold climates, according to the company. The balaclava-style Polar Hood is compatible with all Howard Leight earmuffs, and features patented side panels that eliminate gaps between the ear cup and the ear, forming a tight acoustic seal around the ears without distorting sound or attenuation, the company says. Its weather-proof design makes it ideal for workers in the construction, oil/gas/petrochemical, food production, and other industries exposed to cold weather conditions. Other features of the Polar Hood includes a seal around the face to prevent further exposure, an adjustable design that includes a front zipper for ventilation, and a foldaway visor. Bright green trim enhances visibility and safety outdoors. The Polar Hood is available in two sizes, small/medium and large/extra large.
