hoods beat hats plumb sideways.

a little harder to see out of, but a man can work with that.

need a warm neck.

cabela's has some good ones. i have the cheapest one--micro-Berber fleece.

worthless in wind. would not buy it again.

they have a couple more that are worth a look, though.
i think the best is called "wooltimate".

had a hunter here last winter dressed in the bibs and hoodie, and he was a happy man in sub-20f temps.

i was guiding him and freezing. he tipped me a hundie, but i'd have preferred the hoodie. .

Seems to work on TV... In real life not so well.. Your head will turn inside the hood blocking your vision at exactly the wrong time, every time. Plus it blocks your peripheral vision and hearing all the time. Has to be tightened too block the wind with a draw string and you have to make sure that string never gets in the way of your bow string. Good luck with that.
The wool part is good.. check out wool boonie hats or stocking caps if you can stand them. One of those and a balaclava or neck gaiter will keep you just as warm and still allow you to see, hear and shoot unimpeded. For nastier weather the balaclava with some kind of wind breaker jacket/parka hood that is loose enough to pull on and off easily works well.

I've got an Asbell pullover in "evening stand green" and adore it. Keeps me perfectly warm in the Florida fall and winter chill and stays cool/regulated when the mid day mild temps go up. It's silent and the pattern works perfectly in our woods and swamps. It also has nice big pockets for things. I want to get the zip up version next for even more versatility.

The hood is very large so you can pull it up over the back of a hat or ball cap enough to break up your silhouette but still maintain good vision.

Wool is good though it's better if properly woven and shrunk.... Then it can be really fabulous.

Kinda rocking the boat here but......I hate wool! Wool is heavy, soaks up moisture, stinks, itchy,bulky,and not effective against the wind.....give me the newer high performance fabrics, which short of fire resistance, excels in every aspect.

I do not like hoods when hunting. As a stand hunter, when I turn my head I often see nothing but the inside of my hood. In addition, the hood really blocks my hearing ability to the sides and from behind, especially when I am straining to hear the quietest crunch (if any) in the leaves, since they are often moist.

I like a knit cap with a gaiter on my neck, and this works in upstate NY where it gets quite cold, especially after a few hours on stand anytime from November on. I spent a tough weekend on stand in a tough wind with cold temps, and remained warm.

Wool is ok until it gets damp then it's a nightmare. Give me 21st century materials by Under Armour any day.

HUH??

That is one of wools greatest properties it still holds heat when wet.

Quality, let me say that again QUALITY wool is great. The only drawback is wind. The right liner cures that.

As far as a hoodie goes I'm with Jack. It blocks hearing and vision. That said I like the continuous coverage up the back of my neck. I will wear mine withthe hood folded down 1/2 way kind of like a wind blockfrom shoulder to shoulder. If the weather turns ral bad I can just unfold it over my head.

(I know this description isn't good) I'm thinking....

I always wear a thick hoodie when I'm hunting. I usually wear a micro fleece hoodie that I treat with a water repellant so light rain rolls right off. Like Bowjack said, I also agree that a hoodie can restrict your field of view and hearing, but then again, I just tried still hunting this fall for the first time and my hoodie helped me feel like I was a lot stealthier in the woods than I actually was (read: I couldn't hear myself walking).

I have the zip up version of Asbell's pullover in Timberghost. I find it more practical than a pullover. I wish it had a high collar rather than the hood though.
