    Posted by Matt on 25th Apr 2016

    I put the hood to test several times and subjected it to a good bit of burn building work last week. I was very satisfied with the protection. The increased airspace between the hood and your head is a bonus to me. I do not like hoods that fit tightly because of the increase in compression. Working for long periods of time in a burn building allows you to really get a feel for the fit of the gear.
