Lightweight Performance Hood
The Lightweight Performance Hood (LPH) is a fire-resistant, no-melt, no-drip head and face covering that provides the Soldier with protection from thermal threats and minimizes heat stress in hot-dry climates while providing limited heat retention in cool climates.
It is a one-size-fits-all item featuring a ventilated mesh top to minimize heat stress beneath the Advanced Combat Helmet. It is anti-microbial, anti-odor, and moisture wicking. It weighs approximately 3 ounces, fits easily in a Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) grenade pouch or uniform pocket.
