«Purchased this hood from R-Sky a few weeks ago because I felt my hoodie wasn't sufficient for the job and at £29 I thought it was money well spent.
How right I was, the hood easily blocks out all light and allows me to observe with both eyes open the quality of the material is excellent very well made.
It has 3 buttons for different sizes and also keeps you warm as a added bonus.
In conclusion if your tired of neighbours lights or reflections of your scope or just want to observe with both eyes open then you can do a lot worse.»

My observing site is my driveway... and as such, I have several streetlights and house-lights with which I must constantly contend. Because of that, I'd been contemplating making something like this observing hood for quite a while... and when I saw this thread in October, I took advantage of the free shipping offer and ordered one.

 

Unfortunately, the shipping address on my package was in some manner "incorrect"... so after taking two weeks to get all the way to Chicago, the USPS sent it back to R-Sky in Russia. R-Sky immediately informed me of this, and another hood was shipped to me. Shipping time for this second package to me was a total of 17 days... which isn't bad at all, considering that I am on the USA's west coast, in rural southern California, more than 100 miles inland from Los Angeles. My honest expectation was that shipping would take at least three weeks, if not longer.

 

The hood itself is very high quality, and I have to say that I am VERY pleased with both its construction and its functionality.

 

The material from which the hood is made is a perfect weight -- not too heavy, and not too light. I also like that two layers of material were used, which causes the hood to be COMPLETELY opaque... and VERY comfortable to wear. And the workmanship and stitching are absolutely professional in appearance, and extremely finely-done.

 

The photo accompanying this thread shows the hood to be a dark blue, but the photos on R-Sky's website reveal it to be black, which it is... and the material itself is very smooth.

 

All-in-all, then, an EXCELLENT product... and one that I am happy to recommend to the Cloudy Nights membership. If you or your observing buddies are at all bothered by having the glare from extraneous light sources compromising your peripheral vision and ruining your dark adaptation... this would make a terrific Christmas present!

Might be nice for the summer.  This time of year I use a hooded sweatshirt.

I often observing in winter, when the temperature is about -20 ° C. On my head, I use only the Observation Hood. And I'm not cold. It works like a hat.

This hood extends much farther forward than a hooded sweatshirt does... so it's far more effective at blocking surrounding lights. No hooded sweatshirt or other hooded garment that I own comes even close.
