Most Frequently Asked Questions
- What is the average turnaround time for your products?
Answer – Six to Eight weeks from when all supporting documents are submitted and approved.
- What is the difference in materials your suits are constructed of?
Answer – Hazardous suits have many options for suit construction materials ranging from 1.1 mm CE Certified Kangaroo to 1.4mm CE Certified Cowhide for extra protection.

Kangaroo which is the lightest leather on the market which is about 40% lighter than a suit of the same size in cowhide. Our Hybrid models offer the best of both worlds by offering a kangaroo torso and cowhide limbs offering maximum durability combined with comfort and a lightweight alternative.
Our suits have many options for armor ranging from CE Certified products to meet and exceed the upcoming new standards for 2018. Currently we use brands like Knox Armor among a few others.
