The key to Pocket Smoke Hood’s protective powers lies in its versatile design and cutting edge material first utilized by NASA to protect space shuttles. A thin layer of high temperature resistant polyamide film allows for clear vision and hearing while protecting the user’s face from heat and flames up to 932°F.
Toxic air then travels through a seven layer carbon micro-particle removable filtration bringing users enough breathable air to avert a lethal crisis for up to twenty minutes.

Following are statements made from the FAA and NTSB regarding previous Smoke & Fire events:
“…delaying the aircraft’s descent by only two minutes is likely to make the difference between a successful landing and evacuation, and a complete loss of the aircraft and its occupants.”
“The reason for the loss of control of the aircraft immediately prior to impact and therefore the most immediate cause of the accident, was the inability of the pilots to maintain adequate control because of the denseness of the smoke within the crew compartment.”
“…the dense smoke in the cockpit seriously impaired the flight crew’s vision and ability to function effectively during the emergency.”
“Flight crews must be protected from toxic fumes to safely fly and land their airplane. Protecting the crew primarily consists of oxygen masks and smoke goggles. Providing an independent oxygen source and protection for the eyes of the crew is essential. In the past smoke goggles have been found to be ill-fitting and therefore unable to provide a complete seal around the face of some wearers.”
“Flight crews are considered incapacitated if their vision is impaired to a point where they can no longer see primary instruments, checklist, or outside in the direction of flight. Flight crews are also considered incapacitated if they do not have sufficient breathable air to sustain operation.”
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I buy the Pocket Smoke Hood over other smoke hoods?
Not only are we more reasonably priced than most of our competitors, within our price range we also offer the best heat resistance hood with a full range of 360° vision which allows effective speaking and listening ability. Most importantly, the PSH’s compact size allows easy storage and transportation, providing day to day protection for you, your family and staff.
What is the demand for the Pocket Smoke Hood?
Since 9/11, the demand for our PSH has increased dramatically.
Is the Pocket Smoke Hood easy to use?
The PSH is compatible with long hair, glasses and beards, and reduces some of the burdens traditionally associated with the use of respirators regarding the additional weight of the filter canisters or the need to bite onto a mouth piece. Our one size fits all design is suitable for adults, children, infants and pets.
How was the Pocket Smoke Hood tested?
The PSH is manufactured under strict specifications and intense certified examinations. The PSH has also passed the quality standards tests of UL, ASTM and IRI. The PSH achieved the Good Design Award and ranks as one of the world’s top three Industrial Design Awards in Asia. Tested by the Industrial Research Institute in the Personal Equipment category.
Can I travel with the Pocket Smoke Hood?
Two of the PSH’s main advantages is light weight and its portability. It is easy to pack in hand bags, suit cases, brief cases, cost pockets, and seat back pockets. It is invaluable to have on airliners, personal aircraft, cruise ships, RV’s, hotels, high rise apartments, and public buildings.
How efficient is the Pocket Smoke Hood?
The PSH is made of a high-tech material called Polyamide film resistant to fire and high heat up to 930°F with a 7 layer carbon filter. The Polyamide film is used in various capacities by NASA USA. The PSH is designed primarily as an escape tool to aid its user with 20 minutes of breathable air to safety without injury from inhalation of toxic smoke and fumes. Oxygen takes time to deplete in any fire. The ability of the PSH to filter toxic smoke is sufficient for people to escape from danger.
