The chemical protective hood is an authentic United States Military surplus item designed for enhanced protection from chemical and biological hazards presented to the face, head and neck of the wearer.
Chemical Protective Hood
The chemical protective hood boasts a durable vinyl construction that is designed for use in concert with a full-sized gas mask. To provide a fit that is both comfortable and snug, the chemical protective hood also features a cinch cord in the neck as well as Velcro® adjustable straps that are designed to anchor the hood underneath the arms of the wearer. The hood itself features two eye and two air inlets as well as a speech diaphragm outlet valve. When used alongside the M17 protective mask or the Czech M10 gas mask, the chemical protective hood provides enhanced protection from chemical and biological hazards that a gas mask will not provide on its own.
