Reflective illumiNITE Synergy Cold Weather Hood. The cold weather hood provides full facial protection to guard against the elements and illumiNITE reflective technology to guarantee visibility. The soft fabric feels soft on your skin and wicks away moisture to keep you dry on every run. This hoodie also converts into a neck gaitor; trust me, it will be your best friend in cold windy conditions.

This thing has become my favorite cool weather cycling purchase. I have beanies that the wind cuts thru like i'm wearing mesh, but not this hood! it's damn near windproof in cooler temps (i did start to feel the cold when temps got below 40 degrees.)
I would say this is great in fall and spring, especially when it gets dark early. But for winter time, this may have to be a layer, or you may want something heavier, especially if you live somewhere it gets really cold (ie: snow). I live in Las Vegas, NV where the overnight lows in winter get in the 30s (or 20s in a bad winter).
If you're moving at slower speeds than a bicycle, like jogging, or just working outside at night, this hood may be better for keeping the cold out in lower temps.
The illumiNITE coating works great, performs as expected.
