Helly Hansen 06225 Braden Navy Fire Resistant Jacket
If you work in situations where fires are especially likely or hazardous, perhaps in or around aircraft, an offshore station, areas around molten metal, or in Emergency Services, you want every edge when it comes to safety. The Helly Hansen 06225 FR Jacket provides you protection against flame along with a good dose of healthy warmth. After all, you don't want to fight the weather in addition to any crisis conflagration.
The flame-resistant capacity of this jacket meets the standards of the American Society for Testing and Materials, and is due to the Zirpro-treated 80%wool/20%polyester fabric blend. First, wool itself is regarded as a naturally flame-resistant fiber. (How many flaming sheep have you seen?) But what is this Zirpro treatment, you say? Glad you asked. It uses molecular complexes made from zirconium to bond with the fabric. (Yes, that's related to that flashy cubic zirconia jewelry, but we don't advise giving this jacket as an anniversary present, or things will really get hot.) Now, should the wool burn, instead of forming a fine ash, it forms a thin layer of charcoal which greatly reduces thermal conductivity. This means two things-you've got more non-pain time to take emergency measures at the very least, or, the flame goes out anyway because not enough heat is transferred to the inner material.
Keeping warm in a chilly environment is achieved with Helly Hansen's patented W-Pile FibreLock construction system. The deal here is the way the wool fibers are anchored to the backing using a loose cut/loop knitting technique so the pile can be double-sided, providing even more volume and insulation without increasing weight. The FibreLock system creates elastic knits with extreme durability, making the Helly Hansen 06225 Jacket a long- lasting garment which is very comfortable to wear. Keeping out the chill continues with ribbed sleeve cuffs and waist, and a pile flap behind the zipper.
The Helly Hansen 06225 FR Navy Jacket can be a dependable ally in an undependable environment. Get a great price on one today!

Why Choose Working Person? Let Our Customers Explain!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the products and service I received from your company.
I had a short notice request to travel from New Orleans to the Northwest Territories in Canada to inspect an offshore facility out on the sea ice north of the arctic circle. You can't get clothes suitable for that area in New Orleans at any time, and certainly not in April. I called your order line on a Saturday, and your ordering department spent quite a bit of time with me making recommendations and checking to see if the gear was in stock. He made sure that the order was packed for a Monday overnight shipment and I had my clothing by Tuesday afternoon. I left New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
This was a very important project for our company and I want to thank you for your service. I also want to tell you that the great representative you had for your company. I've passed on your name to our organization for other folks that might have to make a trip up North.
Here are a couple of pictures of me in Canada out on the offshore ice. It was -22 C (-8 F) with a pretty good wind (wind chill -32 C / -26 F). The clothes I got from you all kept me warm throughout the 7 hours I spent outside doing my inspection. In fact, as you can see, I didn't even need to zip my jacket. It was a sunny day, which helped.
Finally, the gloves you see in the pictures are not the ones I ordered from you. Your gloves were fine, and I used them when I wasn't physically working, but the work I was doing required a leather glove for hand protection. I procured a pair of thinsulate leather work gloves in Inuvik that worked great and were a good balance between insulation, protection, and manual dexterity. I don't have them at work with me, but if you are interested I can look at the tag and send the brand information on to you.
