    Under the Helmet hood

    How many of you wear a hood under your helmet? If you do, what do you find works best?

    I cut the hood from an old hoodie to maintain my hair, after trooping at a con and having my hair yanked by people because it was sticking out from under my helmet

    Under Armour - Skull Cap. Works great. Thin and breathable and has a built in sweatband.

    Re: Under the Helmet hood

    A balaclava (not to be confused with baclava) or a painting hood from Lowes/ Home Depot would work also.

    Sidenote... Do any of you guys who have trooper armor wear the Imperial cap under your helmets??

    Would pantyhose work? If you cut eyeholes or something? I mean, so when you took the helmet off no one would think you'd rob the place?

    Re: Under the Helmet hood

    You can go to Lowes and get a "painting hood" similar to a balaclava that only costs a few bucks. it's a offwhite color. You might be able to dye it. I haven't tried yet though. It looks similar to what race car drivers wear.

    Re: Under the Helmet hood

    Ok ok I'm not afraid to admit it. I used pantyhose!
    I bought a new pair and cut out one leg, pulled it over my head, and cut a face hole. Fits perfect and keeps all my hair in. It's black so its not transparent and I don't look like I'm robbing a bank

    Re: Under the Helmet hood

    I got a breathable painters hood, I havent tried it out yet, I though I would tuck it into my neck seal, my hair is past my shoulders and it looks really bad hanging out, plus it keeps hair out of the way when your putting on all this stuff.

    I'd use a do-rag or a do-rag beanie, they're very thin & look just as cool with the helmet off.

    Re: Under the Helmet hood

    after trooping for the second time in my fett costume yesterday I've decided that I need one of these too. I have sort of longish hair in the back and it was sticking out over my neckseal. Also my padding inside the helmet makes the helmet sit higher up (so instead of a no neck fett you can see most of my neck). So yeah I'm thinking about getting a nice underarmor one to wear.
