  • Top grain leather is placed on the non-dominant side of the hood, across the upper torso, and arms. This provides exceptional protection from heat and burns. By placing leather only where you need it, it cuts down weight and bulk while delivering the protection you need.
  • Hood and sleeves are lined with a soft made in the USA twill to also help in reducing bulk and weight.
  • FR and Kevlar stitching to ensure the jacket can withstand the toughest welding conditions.
  • Left and right-handed models available for a customized fit.
  • Patented in both Canada and the USA for its innovative design.

Custom Design:

  • Patented Design (US & Canada): Innovative features for superior protection.
  • The Thorax offers right handed or left handed models. Whatever hand you hold your stinger in.

Wash & Care:

  • DO NOT PUT IN A WASHING MACHINE. It's not the material we are worried about. It's more the leather shrinking and becoming hard.
  • For a cheaper alternative, we recommend filling the sink with some mild detergent and cold to warm water. 
  • From there, you can dip the garment up to the leather and hand wash the fleece. Ring out the excess water. 
  • Hang dry.

  • 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.

    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.

    Bought for my husband and he absolutely loves it. Suggested he’d like some pockets on it but still his favorite hoodie now.
