Unlike the fencer hood which relies on your head, the astronaut hood is self-supporting. The vertical hoops keep the hood away from the head thereby increasing ventilation and visibility, and the gap between the veil and the side of your face. The front pull-down tab keeps the veil away from the face.

Micro-fibre, an option on this product, is a lightweight man made fabric that is soft to the touch, robust and breathable. It is therefore extremely comfortable to wear, especially on a warm day. We have also noticed that fewer bees settle on this fabric.
