Great Bear Hood



The thing about hoods is . . .
They don’t muss your hair, they keep your ears warm and your head covered, but not too tightly, they’re easy to put up and take down and as such, much harder to lose. This hood is so versatile as it allows the wearer, to pull it back down around their neck when entering a warmer environment and it’s just as stylish as a cowl with a bit of fur around your neck.
