Double-ply hood
The Cobra Ultimate is an extra long, double-ply hood. Its length covers the chest, shoulders and shoulder blades. It has flat stitched seams and a half-inch wide elasticized face opening. It is UL classified to NFPA 1971. It is made with Para-Tek FR, a tri-blend fabric that combines the benefits of three fibres: high strength para-aramid, lenzing FR and high tenacity nylon. It comes in black to hide dirt. The hood is lightweight and breathable, with exceptional flame and heat resistance. It has the highest arc rating — 32 (level 3) — of any hood on the market, says the manufacturer. It is inherently flame resistant, has low thermal shrinkage and an excellent thermal protective performance (TPP) rating — 34.8 after five washes. It resists wear from welding sparks and splatter. It is compliant with NFPA 70E and meets performance specifications of ASTM-F-1506. The hood is also comfortable — it has excellent moisture absorbency and wicks moisture off skin.
