The Kappler Zytron 500 Vapor Level A Chemical Suit provides top-level protection, superior performance and comfort. This Zytron 500 HazMat suit provides gas-tight level A protection against more than 250 chemical challenges including Chemical Warfare Agents (CWA). 

The Kappler Level A suit has an exclusive 2N1® glove system that eliminates annoying inner glove inversion while increasing dexterity and comfort. The expanded visor provides a large viewing angle area while the patent-pending AntiFog system dramatically improves visual clarity throughout a work session. The soft, pliable Zytron 500 fabric increases comfort in situations that require extended wear and a wide range of motion. Double layer material at the knees increases comfort and confidence when kneeling.

These fully encapsulated HazMat suits are available with front or rear entry versions and are in two colors to support situations that require discretion (Charcoal) or high visibility (Hi-Viz Orange). Kappler chemical suits have a ChemScan® label to quickly see if the garment is appropriate for the current response challenge. Suits for Level A HazMat suit training are available here.

Fully encapsulated suits are made-to-order by the manufacturer and require prepayment at the time of order.
