Bulletin Subject: 
Part #825-070 MOD-1 Hood with Bib Kit S/M & Part #825-075 MOD-1 Hood with Bib Kit L/XL
Products Affected: 
805-175 M-48 MOD-1

An attachable hood kit is now available for the M-48 MOD-1 modular full face mask. The hood is attached to the mask with brackets and screws. A short rear zipper and earphone pockets are standard. The hood is made out of 5 mm YAMAMOTO neoprene. Their patented Super Composite skin has nylon fabric on the outside and Yamamoto’s proprietary smooth coating on the inside. This feels like baby powder when dry, and is slippery when wet, the hood is easy to get on and doesn’t trap body oils like nylon fabric. This material also has outstanding heat retention while retaining its superior flexibility and comfort.

The kit is available in two sizes: small/medium and large/extra large. The kit is sold separately and will not be installed by Kirby Morgan®.

The new hood is only for the M-48 MOD-1 and will not fit the M-48 SuperMask®.
