PGI Barriaire™ Gold Elite Pro Particulate Hood Comprehensive Coverage

With Nomex® Nano Flex SureFit Panel and Face Opening

Elite Pro hoods are specifically designed to improve comfort and provide greater freedom of movement while significantly reducing tugging or pulling away from the SCBA facepiece. Tapered back, notched shoulder drape, and patterned bib perfectly interface with turnout collars and SCBA strapping. Designed to comfortably integrate with SCBA facepiece head harness and maintain a proper seal with the mask.


Particulate coverage throughout the entire head including the SureFit panel at crown. Front and back bib extends particulate barrier coverage beyond critical areas as identified by NFPA – Maximum Protection. UL Classified to NFPA 1971 Standard on Protective Ensembles for Structural Fire Fighting and Proximity Fire Fighting – Current Edition. Certification to the NFPA 1971, 2018 Edition Option for Particulate Protection – Current Edition.

New Elite Pro Design with longer throat area ensures continuous seal of face opening with face piece throughout rapid head motions.   A narrower bib prevents lockdown & restrictive movement caused by the weight of SCBA straps.   

Critical Coverage DuPont™ Nomex® Nano Flex particulate barrier from the base of the neck and around the entire head except for SureFit panel at the crown. All critical areas of particulate penetration as identified by NFPA have particulate barrier.  

BarriAire™ Gold Hoods from PGI offer protection from harmful particles and contaminants in the areas that pose the greatest risk of exposure by combining outer layers of PGI’s proprietary gold FR fabric, and a middle layer of ultra-lightweight, DuPont™ Nomex® nano Flex fabric. 

BarriAire Gold hoods combine superior comfort, increased protection, and maximum durability. Your fire hood is an investment in your health and safety…choose BarriAire Gold hoods from PGI.


  • Proprietary PGI gold FR fabric for excellent heat, flame, and thermal resistance with superior tensile and tear strength for longer wear life.
  • Lightweight with exceptional breathability, weight similar to hoods without a particulate barrier.
  • BarriAire™ Gold Hoods are quiet and allow excellent hearing for ultimate situational awareness. 
  • Uniquely quilted with 100% heavy-duty meta-aramid thread to stabilize and enhance particulate barrier durability.
  • Exceeds industry standards of blocking 90 percent of particles between 0.1 and 1.0 microns in size
  • Inner fabric engineered to wick moisture from skin, through the fabric, to outer shell where it evaporates.
  • Outer shell fabric features a proprietary non-PFAS DWR finish which allows the hood to dry 2x–3x faster than non-treated fabrics, reduces the build-up of toxic residue that is easily absorbed by non-treated fabrics and enhances the release of contaminates during washing.
  • Built-in stretch and recovery, to better conform to the head and neck.
  • Extra-long (23") length ensures the hood stays tucked-in, even after laundry shrinkage
