Black Stallion® Introduces Lightweight Welding Jacket with FR Cotton Stretch Knit Back Panel for Comfort and Breathability

Staying cool, comfortable and protected while welding is now easier with the new Stretch-Back FR Cotton Welding Jacket (JF1625-NG) from Black Stallion®.

The lightweight Stretch-Back welding jacket offers all the protection of a Black Stallion standard welding jacket, with the added comfort of a flame-resistant cotton stretch knit back panel.

The looped knit yarns of the back panel are extremely flexible, offering comfortable stretch.  This horizontal stretch provides just the right amount of “give” as a welder moves his shoulders and arms.  These looped knit yarns also allow more air to flow through the fabric. This increased airflow provides more breathable comfort and can create a cooling effect as the job heats up.

And, the seven ounce cotton stretch knit back panel includes ASTM F1506 compliant flame resistance. Welders get the added benefit of comfort and breathability without sacrificing protection.

The front, shoulders, arms and neck of the JF1625-NG are constructed of 9oz flame-resistant cotton. The jacket offers protection for most light welding applications and includes all the high-quality, innovative features you expect from Black Stallion. The stand-up welder’s collar, with snap closure that helps keep sparks off the neck. And, the extended 32” length offers enhanced torso protection.

Six powder-coated stainless steel front snaps secure the jacket with less gapping. Other welding jackets use as little as four buttons, leaving wide gaps for sparks to potentially penetrate. The six front snaps are reinforced with leather backing to reduce the risk of tearing.

The new Stretch-Back FR Cotton Welding Jacket (JF1625-NG) from Black Stallion is available through independent welding and safety distributors nationwide.
