Hey there, this is Matt with ORR Safety, and we've partnered with Under Armour® to bring you products, that keep you focused and productive. So let's talk about the Under Armour® ColdGear Infrared® Balaclava. This product is perfect for workers who are exposed to cold weather, including people who work in the trucking, airline, construction and railroad industries.
This garment's form-fitting. It's got a very seamless feel. It's got some perforations upfront here that enhanced the breathing. One neat feature about this is not only is it moisture wicking, but it's also got built-in odor control. So you can wear it for several days in a row, and you don't have to worry about it getting stinky on you.
But another really cool feature is the fact that it's very, very modular so you can wear it completely covered up. Dropped down if you need a little bit more breathability or need to speak to someone close to you. You can bring it all the way back, make yourself a neck gator. Or if you just want to cover the top of your head, you've got that option, as well.
So one neat thing about this garment is what Under Armour®'s calling their CGI ColdGear Infrared® Ridges on the inside of the garment that actually trap your body's heat and radiate it back inside your skin.
One note regarding safety is that this garment is made of polyester. So you're not going to want to wear this in any application or environment where you need to have flame-resistant or arc flash clothing.
This garment is ideal for workers who need to stay focused on the task at-hand and not get distracted by the cold. It's very versatile for different job functions and weather conditions.
