Review about items
The hood is comfortable. It's also very big, even with custom head and neck measurements, so you can either wear it normally or conceal your face if you wish. It's light enough so you don't notice it much when having it down. Make sure you wear it far enough forward so it doesn't begin to slip back as you move around in it.
Although I had to wait a while because of the hard work and the delivery 2000 km away, I was pleasantly surprised by the great quality of the hat. I would definitely recoomend this hat. I was able to choose my own colours and it looks perfect!
Fits perfectly. My new favourite hat! Excellent service as well. Worth the wait.
