I am designing a light shell jacket made from ETA-proof cotton.
The fit and design of jacket is based on a traditional Inuit Kamleika - i.e. a slim-fitting anorak - albeit with a larger hood.
I have previously owned several Patagonia Jackets, and been very happy with the fit and adjustment of their jacket.
Unfortunately I have sold my last Houdini, which had a clever one-point adjustment system, that I would like to recreate.
IIRC the houdini (Winter 09-model) had one puller very low in the neck which simultaneously tightened the circumference AND the face closure, but with the bungee running in a different manner than found normally in a 3-point adjustment hood (standard shell hood). Some kind of foam was inserted on the face closure to keep the face opening at a preset size.
Furthermore I believe that my Patagonia Hooded Down Sweater had a similar arrangement BUT with some kind of O-ring inserted in the bungee channel, this allowing for lifting the chin portion of the hood UP to provide varying degrees of facial protection.
As i remember this was a very cool idea which allowed for a good fit AND would be easier to sew than a normal 3-point hood.
Therefore, can anyone post pictures, diagrams or an explanation of how the cord arrangement is on a newer Patagonia jacket (with one-point adjustment back-of-head-adjustment)?
I hope this is clear. Thanks a lot.
