Overview

Francis hood restricts your vision totally to your instruments & because its small, will not block any part of an instructors vision. Made of lightweight, shock-resistant plastic, and has cushioned face pad for comfort. Adjustable elastic headband.

Reviews

This is the best hood I have used because I spend a lot of time in the hood I developed the ability to cheat with other hoods (able to see shadows, parts of windshield, etc.) When I switched to the Francis hood my transition to actual IMC greatly improved. I live in the North Rockies where ice prevents most actual IMC practice, so this was a big help for myself and my instrument students. Highly recommend this product.

The elastic strap is way too short. It needs to be replaced by a longer one if you want to wear this hood more than a minute

Update from Customer on 10/1/15
I wear eyeglasses with the Francis hood without problem. I did enlarge the viewing area as I had to move my head to see all the instruments in my scan and that is disorienting.
