Anyway, I was just suggesting this as an idea as it is something I wanted from this jacket and thought that it may benefit other casual wearers too. But I understand of course, as @Giles said, that everyone has different opinions - and that's good. I don't want to spam this thread any further, as I could've also posted this in the "What should we make" thread. I just thought it might make sense to mention it here.

Thanks for the discussion. Always nice to exchange ideas and opinions :)

To be fair though you can have hoods built in fairly unobstructively; think M-65 where the hood is rolled into a similar stand-up collar to that on this garment, for instance. Or, I have a jacket with an optional hood that snaps on.

I'm not in the market for this piece but the idea could have merit.
Think it, be it.

After seeing all of these comments I understand where Giles and Motojobobo are coming from. This is made as a riders jacket for riders. People who don't ride can wear it, but the designs that a non-rider would think it should have, just plain won't be there and never will be.   

Iron Heart doesn't typically bring in many of them and from what I'm seeing in inventory, they ordered more for this season. I just asked my wife for one. Getting one will depend on how "wedding anniversary" gift this actually is.

These primaloft jackets are the best! I have an IHJ-08 which is the OG version of this with a hood. My absolute most-worn piece when the weather gets cold. I don’t think I wore my N1 a single time last winter.

Yeah, they're definitely not wrong--but not all riders wear helmets either.

@jordanscollected  good luck with your “anniversary “ present 😄. I may try the same tactic as this jacket is very high on the want list. Problem for me is I have to wait until August for this to work.  Also, have a Rab Equipment jacket that utilizes the same insulation and it is unbelievably warm, especially for the weight. 
Im thinking true to size for this piece, yes?

@SKT I believe a lot of the IH outwear is true to size or size down. I am an XL in IH shirts, and I would take a large in this jacket and I have a large in my N1 vest. The best way to dig in, is to find the IHUK staff member closest to your size and compare what size they would wear

@jordanscollected  I am smack between a medium and large with this piece. I just need to decide if I want some room underneath for layers. I’ll be interested in how you find the large when you pull the trigger so update if you get the chance 👍

Alex and Giles wear XL

@Alex @Giles Gentlemen, are you wearing XL for the length or for layering room? My immediate reaction to the measurements is that I would take an L, but seeing the above gives me pause.

I don't layer under it.....So possibly for the length.....
