Welding jackets are an important part of everyday personal protection gear that most people use. These clothing items are designed to ensure that they keep out most of the heat that is generated during the welding activity. Additionally they tend to keep out any sparks and flying hot breakaway shards that are usually a common occurrence in any welding process.
To achieve this; these items must be made from the right material normally different types of animal leather such as the cow hide and deer skin. Other materials used in the making of these highly effective protective gears include the Kevlar stitching which ensures that no heat gets in at the seams. To further enhance their protective nature most manufacturers have taken to designing these items in a very unique way. For examples most jackets come with extra heavy arms also called the welding sleeves that can be fitted onto the jacket for extra protection.
The arms are usually much more sensitive to heat than say the hands and as such should be afforded the best care possible.
