Fabric Selector - High Heat Coats and Jackets for High Risk Jobs

To help you get the optimal heat resistant coats/jackets, start by understanding the materials that we offer. Once you figure out what fabrics will work for you based on material comfort and protection that you require, you can easily select the actual garments. 

If you want to shop for garments made of multiple materials - select all your desired fabrics on the product selection page once you get there.

We color-coded some of our fabric comparison criteria. Most color-coded cells have 3 possible levels to make comparisons easier.

  • Orange color = lowest rating in the specific comparison criteria (protection, comfort or durability)

  • Yellow color = middle rating in the specific comparison criteria

  • Green color = highest rating in the specific comparison criteria
