Thread: Hoods

    Hoods

    So winter is here, and I hate wearing a hood because I feel like it strangles me around my neck. Any of you guys out there have any suggestions on a good hood or cap? I havnt tried one yet that fastens under your chin..so that's an option, and also Hyperflex has a hood, but it looks like a wetsuit beanie. Any ideas, suggestions?

    detached hoods bring 1/3rd the results

    I wear a Quicksilver hooded vest under my suit. Very comfy in the neck area and if you don't need it you just push it back off your head.

    I live in Southern NC, I agree with you mostly on the hoods. I don't usually wear one but maybe 4 or 5 times in a season, but those 4 or 5 times I always wish I had one that was good

    20 mph North wind and a bald head and you'd wish you had a hood.

    I like mine but it doesn't cover my chin, which is preferred

    this. not to mention the damage not wearing a hood can do to your hearing. if it's windy & even semi-cold, i'll be wearing a hood.
