The WeatherWool Double Hood is back in stock in the Lynx Pattern! We will also be making Double Hoods in Drab and Duff Colors very shortly, hopefully beginning of April 2021. Not sure when we will have the Double Hoods in Black. The website will accept payment for Double Hoods in Drab, Duff and Lynx. Double Hoods in Black can be backordered at a price of 0. Of course, you can also phone us.
The Double Hood is secured to any of several of our Jackets by means of three Slot Buttons on the collar of the Jacket.
We have reworked some aspects of the Double Hood. The most important feature, two layers of our FullWeight Fabric, has not changed. But we have added two more adjustments to the chin strap, the cinch cords are double-anchored and the cord clips are held more securely and closer to the Hood. The new chin strap can snug the Hood to three different head sizes.
Our jackets and outer vests have 5 buttons under the fold of the collar. The Double Hoods have corresponding buttonholes.
The Hood is large and the flaps fasten in the front, just under the chin. There are draw cords at the sides than can pull the Hood down and in closer to the head.
The first couple of hoods we made used only one layer of our Fabric. But then we decided that when you want a hood, you want a HOOD. Adding the second layer of Fabric makes the Double Hood pretty well bulletproof. Anything short of really insane weather really doesn't get through it. Also, most people will wear it over our Ball Cap or something similar, which further protects the head.
