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.
Amazing quality, soft fabric and a very good fit! This chaperon will up your costume a notch for certain.
Such a nice hat! I ordered it to accompany a custom gambeson, but I ended up wearing the hat when I'd go out in the rain. Keeps you warm and fits perfectly! A unique piece of craftsmanship.
