The Advantage

Nothing else on the market exists to rival the Patented FR Thorax Welding Hoodie.

If you want to support welding apparel that’s made in the USA, then this product is for you. In fact, all Up in Smoke Welding Apparel is made using materials sourced from North America. We are deeply committed to ensuring that North American hands touch our products at every step along the way, from when we design our products to when we fulfil your order.

We know that once you try our products, you’ll never buy anything else. Why are we so confident? Because we test, test, test to ensure our products and the materials we use are the best for the jobs we know you do. In fact, the FR Thorax is one of our core products in the Up In Smoke Welding Apparel line and is designed specifically to keep you warm, protected, and looking good.

5 Reasons To Buy To The FR Thorax:

  • The FR Thorax is Innovative; we use CarbonX fleece made with a blend of fibers designed for strength, warmth, and comfort.
  • Our leather is as real as you; the leather may have imperfections on it because it comes from an animal. Imperfections can be a result of branding, scrapes, cuts, freckles and wrinkles. They are not on every hoodie and do not impede the integrity or performance of our gear.
  • We think like welders because we are welders; we place leather on the side of your hood, upper torso and arms to help protect you from burns and prolong the life of our products. Placing leather only where you need it cuts down weight and bulkiness while delivering the protection you need.
  • Welding apparel that’s stronger than steel; we use heavy Kevlar and Nomex 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 in Alaska, Minnesota or in Canada, or burning rod in a fab shop in Texas, California or overseas, or if you’re a welding hobbyist, artist or groupie, then Up in Smoke Welding Apparel has the best product for your welding job. Buy the FR Thorax Welding Hoodie now, and you’ll be happy and warm.

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.

    Leather holds up really nice, but not as warm as I thought. Fr fabric is thin and does not hold up very well. Have had hoodie for 1 month and looks like Swiss cheese

      Hi Logan thanks for the review. The fleece we use is actually a 14 oz weight which is very heavy. We try to put the leather in the high wear areas, to cut down on the weight. Our products are not indestructible and are not for everyone. We build our garments with the best materials available to us on the market. We are coming out with another product in August of 2022 that will replace the fleece with a new material we have been testing. So look out for that. Cheers

    It’s a great Hoodie for someone the does not do a lot of over head welding. If you are straight on with your weld or running up hill this is the Hoodie for you. It’s great for the cold weather. I stayed warm with just this all winter.
