6-in-1 Fleece Hood
Great, with Tweaking
I have wanted this for years, and my SO bought one for me for the holidays (upon my behest--act surprised!).
I finally used it this evening when walking to the store, as I noticed it was sprinkling with a wintry breeze--perfect test run!
The fabric is soft and fairly wind resistant in the balaclava formation (I also tested the scarf and hood forms indoors), but I got a slight draft up the bottom, so I was not as warm as I had hoped, but I was by no means cold or cool. I only had about 20 drops to the face, both ways (1.5 miles totaled, in NW Oregon), so it has good coverage, and light rain does not soak through.
My only actual issue is that it takes quite a bit of tweaking to get it comfortably in position, especially when pulling it up over your head after pulling it into a sloppy scarf (so I didn't look like I was robbing the store with it in the balaclava, or even hood, forms). My hair was a bit messy after redoing the balaclava over my ponytail 3 times (I also walked to Wendy's).
This is warm and soft and quite user-friendly (practice a bit first, as it comes with an instruction card), but it takes a notable amount of tweaking to make it comfortable, so it is not the best for quick exits and entrances during errands, unless you're comfy letting it be, looking like a robber inside because it is cold, rainy, and windy outside. Also, the drawstrings need to be on the outside to manipulate them properly, so it looks a little sloppy, so black might be the best color, since it's all likelier to blend together in color.

I love it! It is very warm, stays in place and doesn't make my head itch after I've worn it awhile. I have told my sisters to get one and gave them your web site. Also got it on same day/date delivery was expected; very pleased. Thank you!

Can be used in any windy city.
The head scarf was purchased as a gift. The recipient loves it. On those windy days downtown, the scarf is warm, stays in place and protects the face real well.

This product was just what I was looking for.
The 6 in 1 fleece hood was a gift for my daughter who runs every day, no matter what the weather! She had been complaining how cold her face gets. When I saw this product in your catalog at such a reasonable price I was skeptical as to whether it would work. She was quite pleased with the hood - says it solves her problem. Thanks!

Perfect for So. California to Canada
I use this fleece hood/ neck covering for cool winter golf mornings in So. CA. My daughter used it in Calgary, Canada in Jan.! Warm and cozy but easily folded away to a small size for packing in a golf bag or purse.

This all in one hood/scarf is the best!
I walk my two dogs regardless of the weather and this is the perfect solution for cold, windy days. Protects my face! Also, makes a warm hat when it's cool but sunny.
