I'm a rig welder from California and Up in smoke welding apparel is hands down the best purchase I have made. Their gear last longer than anything else I've used without sacrificing the comfort. Top notch quality and top notch company.
I have been loving all my Up In Smoke gear! I really like how durable and tough my jackets and pants are while still being thin and flexible enough to move! They hold up great even while using an arc gouger and oxygen lance!
