Doing Hot Work is never a breeze (pun intended), so Magid has stepped to the plate. The new Magid flame resistant breathable welding jacket is here to help cool things down a bit. This innovative jacket allows body heat to escape while still offering protection to the welder. Magid’s jacket (Item 1837GRTW) is ideal for, but not limited to welding operations, assembly and metal fabrication.

Magid Flame Resistant Breathable Welding Jacket
Magid expands their clothing line to include the innovative flame resistant and breathable welding jacket. This flame resistant welding jacket features ANSI cut level 4 sleeves and a breathable mesh back to help prevent heat exhaustion. Even the mesh back panel is flame resistant. While the Magid jacket offers flame resistance, they don’t recommend for overhead welding or any operation where sparks or slag could become trapped in the mesh material.
“Welding environments expose workers to high temperatures,” says Jennifer Walrich, Product Manager at Magid. “Our new welding jacket, manufactured in our Chicagoland facility, has caught the attention of safety professionals because it solves the problem of protecting workers while keeping them comfortable so their work is not compromised or interrupted.”
Creating a high performance jacket that increases comfort and safety is the product of multiple features coming together. The front placket consists of leather reinforced enclosed metal closures for enhanced durability. The sleeves are made from Aramax fabric and offers ANSI Cut Level 4 protection for heat resistance. To prevent the sleeves from riding up the arm, the Para-aramid knit cuffs provide a snug fit and thumb holes. Finally, the flame resistant mesh back panel cools the welder by allowing body heat to escape.
This Magid flame resistant breathable welding jacket allows welders to stay cool and comfortable without sacrificing protection. Whether a welder, fitter, or even a fabricator, having the Magid 1837GRTW (Item #) beats the heat of the normal welder’s jacket. For a price of less than $60, this is a great value for any hot worker.
