The internal draw cord on the Crestone Hood is comfortable against your face and allows for adjustable warmth. The removable underarm straps keep it in place on your head no matter what your sleeping position. The versatile design is great for sleeping, and can be worn as a hood with your jacket or vest. For typical use between 0° - 40°F.
Crazy warm- used it at -3*F over a thin possum down beanie. Word to the wise; do not cinch the drawstring smaller than your face or it’s a soggy frozen mess where your breath freezes. You want your face exposed just like Monte Python and the holy grail. If it’s so cold you need even more insulation wear a neoprene ski mask at night.
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.
