The Advantage

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.

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.

    Love the thorax. Great gear. Fyi please improve how to wash. It’s a *****! Hand washing just the sweater part really don’t get it clean. Sweating in it. The leather starts to stink.

    I would love a pocket in the front of the sweater. Otherwise this thing is a f***ing amazing sweater.

    I give this welding hoodie 4 stars and here’s why.. I have had this hoodie for a week now and it’s awesome! I have been welding full time for 3 years now and Iv wanted one ever since day one.. trust me, it’s worth the money! I love the appearance, the weight is evenly distributed and the leather is genuine.. Up in Smoke reinforced the leather in the arms which is nice so your arms/shoulders aren’t rubbing directly on the leather, gives it that extra comfort. Now, here’s what I think could make it a 5 star welding hoodie (minor details).. I bought the right hand dominant so the hoodie has a section of leather on the back right shoulder blade but does not have any leather protection on the left back shoulder. I wish it did. Welders are always leaning every which way to get there right weld angle so I believe the equal coverage protection would be helpful regardless of which hand you’re dominant. The only other thing I wish it had is a pocket. All in all.. I would 100% buy it again and would recommend it to any other fellow welders.
