Fire-retardant head socks (balaclavas) offer a significant increase in protection against critical burns to the face and scalp. Many racing organizations require a head sock for drivers with facial hair, or long hair that can be exposed under the helmet.
This head sock (balaclava) is made of 2 layers of soft-knit flame-resistant knit Nomex® fabric. A single-layer extension flares out over the shoulders to help keep the hood firmly tucked into the collar of your driver's suit. The single large eye opening offers unobstructed visibility. This style also allows you to wear glasses. Natural off-white only.
