Just as advertised. I have the warmer one already but its just too warm for most of the year. And the absolute best part is the cordage to go under the arms. Makes it the best out there.
The windom hood is amazing. Just used it on a 3 day backpacking trip where nightime temperatures got down close to single digits. The hood kept my head really warm and its really comfy to wear. I must say the quality of katabatic gear products seems to surpass many big name companies. Looking forward to have more products from this awesome company.
Warm, light, pack-very small!! What a difference this hoody make, I am impressed! I dont prefer wearing beanie while Im sleeping because most of them I have get itchy, but this hoody doesnt and keeps my head and neck warm. I think the bang cords are helpful to keep the hoody in place. Love it, 100%!
I use this down to about freezing temps with my quilts. Love it. I also use it for lounging around camp on winter whitewater kayaking trips with a hoodless jacket. I do wish it had a drawcord around the face (like the Crestone hood and most sleeping bag hoods) though will pick up the Crestone hood soon for colder temps where that is more useful. Its also nice to supplement other hooded jackets as well. I dont find the bungee cord particularly useful or comfortable, and removed mine.
Bought a few months ago, but just got to use it up at Baxter State Park in Maine. First, it weighs nothing. I used it with Katabaltic quilt. Great addition for cold temps. Warm and comfy. Highly recommend.
