The Hoodlum is designed to be the perfect cold-weather accessory for your Enlightened Equipment top quilt, or used entirely on its own when out on an adventure. Using ultralight and very breathable Phantom 10D water resistant fabric, and insulated with Climashield Apex synthetic insulation, this will keep your head and face warm in all situations, wet or dry. Offered in two temperature ratings, you can choose a balaclava that’s best suited for shoulder season or high altitude chilly evenings, or full-on winter excursions.
The Hoodlum face enclosure can be left open or snapped closed, to leave more or less airflow as desired. A thin, light shock cord runs over the forehead and around to the back of the hood, which allows you to comfortably secure it to your head, allowing you full range of motion without obstructing visibility, and when you want the hood to cover your eyes to sleep, just pull the cord over the front of the hood and cinch it down tight.
