A protective hood is provided for wearers of gas masks in emergency situations. The hood is formed to provide a "synthetic skin" for the wearer's head, with openings for the eyes, nose and mouth, and neck. A smooth surface around such openings provides for a sealing contact with the gas mask which is donned over the hood. Various means are provided for constricting the hood about the neck to ensure a gas-tight contact. Circulation means within the hood, and a pouched ice gel pack on the exterior of the hood, is provided to cool the wearer's head.
