Great jacket but hood too large

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Patricia from NJ on Saturday, October 13, 2012
This is an update of a review I already wrote. Unfortunately I have to return it. For all it's positive qualities, I could not actually wear it because the huge hood is just unmanageable. The pull-cord adjustments work well to make it fit around my face, but there is so much excess fabric (and the stiff bill) in the hood, that when the hood is down, the weight of it actually tugs the neckline back. The hood can roll into a velcro cinch strap, but then it felt like a heavy log at the back of my neck, still pulling on the front. If you don't mind a huge hood, it's otherwise a great jacket.
