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.
Fits perfectly. My new favourite hat! Excellent service as well. Worth the wait.
Amazing quality, soft fabric and a very good fit! This chaperon will up your costume a notch for certain.
The hat in white color is really what I was looking and searching for since quite a bit. I’m glad Steel Mastery was offering this type of headwear - it’s difficult to get white felt. The quality is good and the size (custom made) fits perfectly. The customer service was fast, friendly, patient and very obliging! It wasn’t my first purchase and will definitely not be my last. Thanks for the uncomplicated and open communication
