A synthetic hood designed to be used on cold nights when you use a quilt or hoodless sleeping bag.
Enlightened Equipment says:
For a good night's rest and a toasty warm head, the Torrid Hood is designed to be the perfect head insulation accessory for your Enlightened Equipment quilt or sleeping bag, or for extra warmth during the day. Built using our ultralight fabrics and CLIMASHIELD™ APEX synthetic insulation, the Torrid Hood keeps your head and neck warm in all conditions, wet or dry.
A lightweight shock cord runs over the forehead and around to the back of the Torrid Hood, allowing you to comfortably secure it to your head or close it over your eyes to sleep. The neck closure features three snaps to allow more or less airflow and lock out cold drafts. The Torrid Hood is also easy to wash, and dries quickly.
Quilts and hoodless sleeping bags are fantastic choices, especially if you are looking to lighten the load; however, in the colder months of the year, some people may miss the warmth of a sleeping bag hood. The Torrid Hood keeps your head and neck warm in all conditions, and as it is filled with synthetic insulation rather than down, moisture from your breath and condensation from your tent won’t affect its ability to loft and keep you warm.
