Works Well!
Great IFR hood especially for those wearing glasses. My student uses it with a baseball hat. It works great. My only issue is that it was sent bent on the side. I tried to bend it back into place and the side broke. I purchased another one with a similar defect. It is still usable in flight though.

Worth the money
Visor fits a little tight better on a hat.

A little dissapointed in the quality of the first shipment. It had a crack on the hood and the foam pads were just piecemealed together. I called Sporty's to complain and they overnighted me a new one which was in perfect condition.
I recommend this for training or for keeping up instrument currency.

Pros: Simple. Effective. Light. Cons: I am not sure how long lasting this will be. This works as advertised. It's simple and effective. And as a bonus is fairly light as well.

Pros: The hood is easily installed and removed from the baseball style bill. Cons: It interferes with the headset earcups on my Bose X. I was unable to get a good fit in combination with the Bose X headset. The side of the ballcap style bill on the Super Hood comes back too far and keeps the headset from fitting tightly over the ear. To keep it from interfering with the ear cups I have to move it up on my head, but then it becomes unstable.

Pros: The hood is light-weight, comfortable and view limiting is better (IMHO) than glasses. The actual hood is a clip-on model which will fit a ball cap or your choice of standard visors. Cons: The construction is basically a clip-on hood attached to a plastic visor. The visor is not the best quality in that it has a velcro strap for head size adjustment, which makes in-flight adjustment impossible. The fit of the visor also is such that my standard David Clark headset rests on part of the visor. This allows in a lot of noise. Changing to a different visor might solve this problem. The view limiting is good and it is light weight. I use it instead of a set of 'foggles'. I will likely change out the visor for a more comfortable one that does not interfere with my headset.

Pros: Works well well with glasses, much better field of vision Cons: Not as easy as Jepp Shades which flip up for visual portion of landing. A little hard to take on and off if you're doing repeated touch and go full IFR approaches. Could add a simple velcro strap on top of visor that could be used to attach it to a flight bag. Otherwise it's unwieldy to carry around and is getting warped. I tried all of the restricted vision products that you offer ! I'm using this one.
