Lightweight, 100% polyester woven jacket construction designed for ease of handling. Fabric construction features a very fine weave for improved abrasion resistance and to resist snagging in wildland fire fighting situations. The Dura-Bond vulcanized adhesion system, which creates both a mechanical and chemical bond between the EPDM lining and the jacket, reduces the probability of delamination as is experienced with competitive adhesive bonded rubber lined constructions. Immune to the effects of mildew and rot, requiring less maintenance after use. The perfect lightweight choice for wildland booster reels. Both the hose and couplings are made in the USA.
