The Advantage

We are proud of the FR Testudo welding jacket for so many reasons; firstly, this is the world’s first welding jacket with a hood. Read that again, the world’s first ever welding jacket with a hood! As one of our trailblazing welding products, this design is patented.

We know that once you try our products, you’ll never buy anything else. Why are we so confident?

In fact, the FR Testudo welding jacket is one of our core products in the Up In Smoke Welding Apparel line and is designed specifically to keep you cool, protected and looking good.

7 Reasons To Buy The FR Testudo:

  • The FR Testudo is double; and by double, what we mean is it has double the protection. We use CarbonX on the top part of the sleeve and line it with Mount Vernon Mills twill to help mitigate heat transfer.
  • Wash, wash, baby; you can machine wash the FR Testudo welding jacket.
  • We think like welders because we are welders; we place high-quality protective material on the side of your hood, upper torso and arms to help protect you from burns.
  • The best protection, please; Our materials shed molten metal, certain chemicals, flammable liquids and other molten substances to provide extraordinary protection against heat and direct flame.
  • Move it; this product has venting, left and right-hand models, extra length in the arms and back and uses protective materials that let you move and groove all day long.
  • Welding apparel that’s stronger than steel; we use FR and Kevlar stitching to ensure our products can tolerate almost anything your job throws at it.
  • A leader in welding wear; Up in Smoke Welding Apparel performs better than anything on the market, however, our garments are not indestructible. Our goal is to keep you protected and depending on the welding job that can be weeks, months or years.

Whether you’re pipelining, burning rod in a fab shop or welding as a hobbyist, artist or groupie, Up in Smoke Welding Apparel has the best product for your welding job. Buy the FR Testudo welding jacket now, and you’ll be happy you did.

We believe welding isn’t just a job or a career. It’s a brother and sisterhood, a family, a community of people who get it done. It’s our job to ensure you have the best welding apparel on the market so that you look good, stay protected and get home to what matters most.

    I love the versatility of this jacket. Its a great mid temp jacket and I usually use it in when inclement weather is pending. I like to think of it as my welding utility jacket. Its very easy to clean so if I’m in a lot of mud or a damp or wet area its my go to jacket. The breath ability makes it perfect for those really humid days or just when you could use some more airflow around your core

    We have 3 of these jackets for the guys and they were a great upgrade from the classic leather jackets. They are way cooler to wear and offer great protection. We often throw em’ over t-shirts in the summer and the protection is great. They are a good fit over work shirts and winter clothes if needed as well. Mine has the high collar which I really like, however the guys have the hoods and really dig them when they’re welding overhead or laying underneath a job.

    I’ve had my Testudo for about 2 years now. Man do I love it. What a great break from the traditional heavy leather. Working in a shop with heat in the winter the traditional warmth provided by your welding jacket isn’t necessary. The jacket breaths well, winter and summer. I love the hood! Keeps you covered when working over head on a vehicle on a lift. Couldn’t be happier!

    This jacket has been great. I’ve had a little more than 8 months now and I use it regularly I’m a union ironworker working industrial. Plant maintenance running stick and flux core daily and this jacket has held up to the rough environments I put it through. It is very versatile. Can wear it with a T-shirt underneath or layer it over top of some cold weather gear. I would definitely recommend

    Perfect for warm/summer heat. Hasn’t burned through and the hood helps stop winds

    I’ve now owned two of these, one hooded and one without. The first one lasted close to 3 years and I’m currently still using the second one. I do most of my welding in a shop in NC. During winter time I’ll wear this jacket nearly five days a week and maybe wash it once a month. As well as wear it during summer months too. These things just last and last. Great protection for what I’d call midweight thickness. I’ll continue to but shirts and jackets from up in smoke if they keep making quality stuff like these.
