Goosefeet/Zpacks hood for the long-necked? on 06/07/2013 02:48:51 MDT Print View

Hi all, I'm wondering if there are any long-necked folk who use the Goosefeet Gear/Zpacks down hood. I hadn't really considered this until I read the review over at outdoorgearlab.com that this particular hood might not work for those with longer than average necks. I have a very long neck and I'm not keen on purchasing one and paying for international shipping only to find it way too short. I am only interested in using it with a quilt BTW, not with a jacket. Can anyone comment?

I think I have a fairly long neck and mine seems fine. It has lots of length front and back so the side will likely be the only issue unless you are a giraffe:) I would contact Joe and get him to measure one for you. Joe's service is second to none.

Spend a little extra and go with the Nunatak or the Katabatic.
