    nah i haven't been wearing one in jersey for over a month. gets a little chilly if you have to duck dive a couple times in a row but besides that its fine

    agreed, should be doable without the hood. depends on your tolerance for ice cream headaches - after duckdiving a couple in a row may get a bit cold, but again should be a go even without the hood

    Take the hood. Better to have it and NOT need it then realize your getting head freeze.
