This is a serious hood! Comfortable, warm enough for the coldest conditions you cannot beat the wolf fur trim. I wanted a detachable hood to coexist with my hoodless down coat. I now feel ready to explore the Arctic.
They seem to run a little on the small side - I would size up if in doubt. My hat size is in the ballpark of a large and I got the large and it fits great.
As a Christian prepper I want my GENUINE SURPLUS MILITARY ISSUE EXTREME COLD WEATHER SHORE PARKA HOOD (A-1) to be the best
and the Alpha Industries gear have opened my eyes to how awesome they are. Daily stay repentant (stop sinning and become born again with the Holy Spirit's supernatural self-control power in Jesus Christ), in your heart for Jesus and be ready for any weather as well Amen. John 3:16-18 (waterproofBible.com and righteousgrunt.com both have 100% positive reviews on you tube). This specific extra large size is very rare because this is the only place on the internet that had these for sale.
Here are the many excellent selling points that most surplus stores DO NOT have:
These shore hoods are DISCONTINUED and are NOT being produced for the United States Military anymore.
Also the XL size is 7 3/8 to 7/12 measurements are bigger than the size large's 7 1/8 to 7 1/4, that are typically sold on ebay and the web.
And these XL's are made by Alpha industries, one of the most trusted brands in U.S.G.I military contract clothing producers.

WE BOUGHT TWO SHORE HOODS BECAUSE WE MAY NEVER GET A CHANCE AT AN XL/ALPHA INDUSTRIES/BRAND NEW/AND SINCE THEY ARE
DISCONTINUED AND VERY INEXPENSIVE AMEN)!
While wearing an extreme cold weather face mask, I also wore balaclava nomex and then wore the alpha industries Extra Large shore hood.
While wearing all 3 at the same time, they all fit very well together. Amen Dad Yahweh, King Jesus and the Good Holy Spirit, from Your souls saving Holy Bible/Scriptures/WORD!
Every since my tour of duty in Island I have been missing the parka....Even here in Florida there are time I need it.
(like sailing in the winter months).
