Seattle, WA (December 10, 2018) – Available now, DragonWear® launches our first pull-over hooded garment, the Cyclone™, in two colors for the utilities, industrial safety and petrochemical markets.
Ride out hazardous weather in comfort and style wearing our new Elements™ Cyclone Pull-Over Hoodie. Constructed from DragonWear® Inherent Tri-Blend Elements™ FR Fabric, a wind-repelling outer surface and durable water-resistant finish guards against fierce weather. Developed to provide superior comfort and freedom of movement in non-stop work environments, this 4-way-stretch hoodie with stylish contrast stitching and modern fit is an ideal mid-layer or outerwear garment for the demands of any season. Functionality and useful design stay at the top of the list with a 3-panel, hard-hat friendly hood design that can be adjusted to ensure unobstructed peripheral vision, a hidden cell phone pocket inside the front Kangaroo pocket, and extra-long sleeves with knit cuffs that prevent wind gusts up the arm. This powerhouse hoodie levels up with advanced air permeability technology for a true comfort experience in the windiest of environments. Air permeability is measured using ASTM D737; a test that measures the amount of air that flows through a fabric in cubic feet per minute (cfm). The lower the number, the better the wind protection. Typically, fleece that is widely used across the market in traditional or hooded sweatshirt designs are only at their most comfortable and functional when worn in windless environments or as part of a layering system. At best, these garments offer only 100-150 cfm specification of wind protection performance; acceptable but not necessarily optimal. The Elements™ Cyclone gives 2X greater wind protection than other fleece-style garments with a cfm air permeability specification of 60 cfm, allowing the wearer to be exposed to high winds all while staying warm and comfortable. When the wind blows, you won’t be afraid to howl back in our Elements™ Cyclone Pull-Over Hoodie. Offered in navy and gray. CAT 3, Arc Rating 28 cal/cm2, NFPA 70E, NFPA 2112.
