Agree on the hood being flushy. The mutant lasts me most of the winter but that's why I got the rip curl. The last few sessions were freezing, it was $80 off, i wanted a Christmas gift, it smelled good= purchase. Again if it breaks down quickly il save for the next mutant or hooded pyro freak and get an O'Neil tattoo on my chest forearm and calf just like the suits.
