    Down Hoods

    Ok, I guess this is top insulation. I usually use my MH Dome Perignon or Golite fleece when sleeping down to mid 30's, I am looking at getting a down hood. My questions are, at what tempature are you using the hood, Which down hood do you prefer, and how low can you take it? Thanks-Lance

    This is toasty but everyone has a different tolerance.
    Can be combined with balaclava and beanie as needed.

    Just picked this one up from ZPacks but I have not had a chance to try it out in the field. Very comfortable though.

    +1 JRB. Not as fitted, but I overheat in one w/more neck coverage, so this works well

    Looks like both have advantages and disadvantages. Thanks for the input.
