RaceQuip SFI 3.3 Fire Retardant Head Sock / Balaclava
Balaclava protects your head from fire, and your helmet from excess sweat!
Fire resistant Balaclavas / Head Socks should be worn with every type of driver suit, especially single layer suits because it will double the minimum protection time (+3 seconds). It is certified through SFI Spec 3.3 for Driver Accessories and undergoes the same TPP and flammability tests as the driver suit outerwear.
This RaceQuip SFI 3.3 rated single layer underwear hood, also called a balaclava or head sock, is knit from a blend of aramid and FRC fabrics to achieve a comfortable fire retardant garment. The properties of this unique fabric structure create a lightweight fabric that performs like Nomex® yet is much more cost effective.
The Fire Retardant Cotton (FRC) component of the fabric promotes a soft and supple lightweight feel. Since it's hypoallergenic, it won't irritate your skin like some other materials tend to do. This proprietary fabric blend is also superior at wicking away mositure from the skin and dries quickly. Seams are flat sewn and strategically placed to avoid pressure points and promote comfort.
All RaceQuip fire retardant underwear garments are machine washable and retain their shape well. This hood is a one layer, one eyeport design with a long bib in the front. Exceeds SFI 3.3 rating and is available in black, one size fits all.
