This hood is a great addition to the already warm and comfortable arctic-lined coat. I purchased this for some employees that work for me and are sometimes required to go outside for their job. They love it.
Bought this for my sandstone ridge jacket with sherpa lining. I was having problems trying to find the style of hood I want that would match the color of my jacket (black). This was the closest. Color doesn't exactly match, but now that it's broken in, it's starting to look a little better. The fact that all the hoods are detachable is very handy. This one works well for the cold days. Can't feel any wind with the construction and fabric used. I'm considering getting an arctic hood for the REALLY cold days.
Hood is medium weight insulation so not too stiff which is good. I am in New Jersey and don't need the artic version. Uses Snap Buttons to attach it. A tan Zipper would have been much better keeping blowing snow and breezes out and making a solid connection so it look like its part of the jacket. Color does not match my jacket. It's darker. Both are new so they should match. All in all still much better than not having any hood so it gets 3 stars. I will wash the hood a few times to soften it up and color match better.
