Idea better than product

The vest doesn’t fit the average sized adult. There’s no stretch in the vest and the hood is not generous enough for people with a lot of hair. The hood has a pointed peak in the top that looks cartoonish.


Hood to go

5/14/2017 by Rachel

I loved the idea of this but the hood shape is odd-more like a sock and not big enough (and i have a small head). I love a good size hood that covers my head and doesn't slide back. This one did not meet my standards so i returned.


Too Small for Use

The hood fits fine, but the vest is too small for my comfort especially if I wear bulky clothes! I'm a 2x and this doesn't fit me well. I see a return in the future.


needs a fastener!

It was raining lightly this morning, so I tried it out. Zipped my light jacket all the way up (no, not tight enough); played with a long fleece scarf and decided against tying it around my neck in a knot just to hold the hood in place.

Although it was almost windless outside, the lightest breeze from walking was enough to push it up and back. I had to hold it in place as I walked the 2 blocks to buy a Sunday paper.

Sorry, but it didn't work for me under practically ideal conditions. I'll sew a snap on the hood and it'll probably be fine.


Nice idea, hood's too large, not returnable

3/23/2014 by ellen

I like the idea of the hood, but it hangs down in back much more than it shows in the picture on right-- and does not look very good hanging over a jacket. And, the restocking fee to return was exactly the price of the hood. So, I could pay $20.00 to return, or $20.00 to keep and not use. Not a reasonable choice, I'm afraid. And my first Grommet purchase.


does not work

Does not work as described.


This hood will not stay on!

3/27/2017 by Jane

I love the idea of this hood so much. Unfortunately it will not stay on at all. Though the hood looks alright when it is not on my head (if a bit pointed and witch-like), it WILL NOT stay on my head when I walk. It doesn't matter if there is no wind. Just the gentle wind caused by walking blows it off every time. I wore it yesterday and literally needed to keep my hand on it to keep it from falling off. Sadly, it is not really very usable. I am not particularly large or small and I am certain I am wearing it correctly (as pictured and under a jacket).


Sent back.

Didn't work for me.

This is a brilliant product. Just got back from a week in Amsterdam. Weather can be iffy there, sudden spurts of rain when not predicted. Didn't have to carry a bulky umbrella but had quick coverage when needed!


Nice idea, not functional

4/7/2015 by Priti

I really wanted to like this hood - it's a great idea for salvaging coats. But, sadly, when it arrived, it was too large. Not in the body, but around the head. The maker lives in Portland, OR, so knows that hoods don't stay on unless there is some sort of drawstring to tighten them. So while the hood looks fashionable - as fashionable as a hood can! - it's not especially functional. Even at home when I tried it on, it easily slipped off my head as I walked from one room to the next. I didn't try it in rain or wind, but I suspect it'd do poorly in the elements.

This water-resistant rain hood is attached to a small, lightweight vest designed to fit under any jacket to protect you from passing showers.

Growing up in Portland, Oregon, Hood To Go founder, Susan Hammel, was no stranger to unexpected changes in the weather. If she had worn a raincoat every time the forecast called for a chance of showers, her mood would have been as gloomy as the weather. Now when it starts to sprinkle, Susan reaches for her Hood To Go and her hair (not to mention her outfit) is no worse for the wear.
