Comfort Plus™ was developed in the early 1980’s by PGI to offer a more comfortable and affordable option to 100% Nomex hoods. Due to its price and exceptional comfort it became an instant success easily becoming the most demanded hood blend on the market. Comfort Plus™ is made of two proven flame resistant fiber work horses - Nomex® and Lenzing FR®. Together they create an exceptionally durable and comfortable flame resistant fabric that wicks moisture away from the skin more effectively than other flame resistant fabrics. The end result is an FR hood that feels cooler in hot environments and warmer in cold environments.
