I bought this Crestone hood for my wife, as she feels the cold and currently in S Korea it is forecast-3.2F / -16C for the next two days. She wears her hood with a synthetic black jacket. She likes how you can cinch down the front to minimise the opening in front of the face. If her neck gets too cold she gets a stiff neck. This hood has kept her head and neck warm when venturing out. Very pleased with the quality of the product and speed and efficiency of the delivery from Katabatic Gear. Purchased 2 sleeping bags, 2 hoods - Crestone and Windom and a Tin cup jacket - all very well made and warm products. What next down booties / gloves?
I have a big hear (7-5/8 fitted) and a full beard, it is a little snug but once it's in place fits well. Plan on using this thing this summer above 10,000 feet
This hood is going to be awesome, fits and functions perfectly...all I need now is some sub freezing temperature
I camped at Mt. Rainier National Park in March 2022 in the snow at Paradise (over 5200 feet elevation) and this hood kept me warm and cozy at camp. Temperatures were in the high teens/low 20s and I even slept wearing the hood. My fellow campers were jealous and now they want their own hoods! I highly recommend.
Everyone I know is jealous of my hood and has also made fun of me for my new style. No lie, it makes me kinda look like an idiot, but DAMN is this thing warm. I was just ski camping in some ~ negative 30 F overnight temps and my neck was so sweaty. Incredible piece of kit to pair with a quilt. I thought jacket hoods would do the job, but this thing is really another level. If you’re on the fence thinking of how it will augment a belay parka etc, it 100% will. So so so so so much warmer. And the face hole is really small which also makes you look like a total dweeb. A toasty dweeb.
