Did not work as advertised
February 1, 2020
This is my second weld x jacket. The first one held up ok although I ordered a medium and I really needed a large. No biggie. My initial purchase was to do 6010 6g. Wishing a day I could no longer securely close the storm flap as the Velcro Loops all seared away. I was doing open root and a fireball landed on my arm. I cut off my weld and looked down at my arm and there was a hole a little smaller then 1/4. I was disappointed that such a hole was created after I watched them pour molten metal on the jacket and peel it off with no holes or burn throughs. But 3 sec of a little fireball and I get a hole. To say I was disappointed was an understatement. Now I know its not impervious to holes or burn through but really?? 3 sec and a get a hole? Not satisfied with my purchase.
ProsGreat heat resistance
ConsThe wrist snaps are so close to the seam that it makes it uncomfortable once secured.
Did not work as advertised.
I do not like the zipper and Velcro I would have preferred snaps
Price is high for a product that doesn't do what it says
