In addition to the jacket and trouser, a firefighter’s personal protection also depends on the careful selection of head, hand and foot protection. MSA Bristol supplies a range of flash hoods which have been carefully selected and tested for compatibility with the other garments to be used. A special compatibility area within our technical and design department allows firefighters to check the all-round suitability of the complete ensembles being selected for use. MSA Bristol offers a wide selection of hoods for structural, wilderness and USAR operations.
