Couldn’t be happier with this down hood. Perfect for quilt users, doesn’t slide around or off your head at night like a beanie can on straight, slick hair. Much better than the hood on a sleeping bag, which can slide into your face when you turn, and of course can’t be detached for use as a separate warm hood. The ultra light weight is remarkable. It’s very warm and has a cozy fit and feel.

Get ready for sweet dreams on cold nights when bundled up with the Goose Hood. A perfect companion to your ultralight down quilt, stay cozy and snug tucked away from the cold. The Goose Hood can also be worn by itself when you need extra protection from the chill.

  • Constructed with responsibly sourced and 'Responsible Down Standard' certified DownTek PCF-FREE water-resistant 900 fill power goose down which stays dry 90% longer than untreated down.
  • Both the liner and the shell are treated with "C0" Durable Water Repellent to resist rain spray and body moisture. C0 DWR contains no PFOA or PFOS.

    .59 oz/sqyd Ventum Ripstop Nylon

    This super light, high quality, 7 denier fabric showcases a ciré finish on both sides and weighs in at just .59 oz/sqyd (20 g/m²).  Featuring a high quality "C0" durable water repellent (DWR), this ripstop and tear resistant material can also handle a light mist (but is not waterproof).

    Ventum nylon cuts the wind while still allowing for excellent vapor transfer the makes the fabric highly breathable.  With a soft texture, Ventum is not sticky or plasticky like some other fabrics in this weight range.

    As the material is down and mosquito proof, it is an excellent choice for wind shell clothing and sleeping bag shells.

    900 Fill Power Down

    This ethically sourced premium down is great for providing warmth in sleeping bags, hoods and socks.


    Store loose (hanging in a closet for example) when not in use. 


    Goose Hoods do not need to be washed very often. Wash once after a long season or only as needed.

    Be careful of machine washing down Goose Hoods. The twisting motion of a washing machine could potentially tear the shell or the internal baffles. If you do try a washing machine do so at your own risk using the delicate setting.

    We recommend hand washing your Goose Hood in a sink or bathtub with warm water and Granger's Down wash. Swish the hood around for a few minutes and rinse.

    Squish the hood and squeeze as much water as you can out of it.

    For best results, lay the hood out in the sun to dry. You may have to periodically pull apart any wet down clumps to allow them to dry completely and fluff back up like new.

    High heat from a clothes dryer can melt delicate shell materials. We recommend drying your down gear items in the sun, or line drying indoors if the weather doesn't permit sun drying.

    Nice Bag

    Overall had a fast quick experience. Took a shot knowing nothing even though I get pro deals on many exact same products from many different companies. Hard to find gear being 6'4 and customized to what you want. Everything came quick and no issues w anything. Never had to deal w customer service and no quality issues. Has kept me warm on many squat camping trips so far up here in Pacific northwest.

    Cozy Goose Hood

    The Goose Hood is perfect for the fall/winter and winter/spring shoulder seasons when keeping your head and neck warm makes a huge difference in sleep quality on the trail. May seem like a luxury but I think of it as part of the bag. At the campsite I put it on as soon as the sun begins to set while eating dinner. Eases my transition to warm and cozy sleep.

    This thing saved me a ton of discomfort on an unexpectedly cold night/morning. Almost weightless extra “something” when the hooded layers/beanie won’t quite cut it
