Growing up in frigid Wisconsin, my Mom always made us get winter coats with hoods. This upset me, I always thought the hoodless coats were cooler. Turns out, indeed they are, Mom insisted on hoods because they keep you soooooo much warmer. Here is my solution- elastic bands attached to reversible faux fur/ silk brocade "Disco Hood" so you can add to any coat or wear without a coat.
Great to wear to a concert or festival when you don't want to deal with a ton of bulky warm items. When you cover your head you can warm up your whole body and vice versa. Been tested during Wisconsin 20 below zero winter weather and been worn to many concert mosh pits of love.
