This hoodie arrived in the post just as the weather took a cold turn. I immediately tried it on for size and the bottom line is, it is not coming off any time soon. It is really comfortable and warm. You would hardly credit that these are made from recycled plastic bottles! The hood has an almost wrap around feel. To assist with peripheral vision I will probably wear a baseball cap when the hood is up, but this will probably be a case for experimentation once I head off into the hills. This is my first ever Hunters Element purchase and it is definitely worth the money paid.
