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.

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.

Pros: It's very nicely blocking the view, perfectly designed. Cons: You need both hands to put it on, and also the headset feels strange when you wear this hood, the cockpit noises are not the same as you got used to.

Pros: This hood is perfect for those of us who where glasses. Can be worn as shown or clipped onto your baseball cap. Takes up no space in the bottom of your flight bag.

Pros: I like these better than goggles as I can continue to wear my sunglasses as well. They are light in weight. I really like the fact that I can use the included visor or I can clip the hood portion to my ball cap with no interference to the headset. Cons: They are a bit large for storage purposes but I feel this is a real minor point. I haven't used them long enough to comment on the durability but it is made with what looks like heavy PVC so it should last a good long time. For the price paid I feel this is a great value.

Pros: Light, better than foggles. Cons: a bit brittle. Velcro wont last long. Needs an extra strap for future use. Better than foggles.

Pros: The best IFR Training hood I have every used. Let's me take advantage of my progressive bifocals so that I can clearly see all instruments in the cockpit. Traditional Foggles are very annoying to me as they block the upper part of my progressive lenses (one of the downsides of getting older!). These are great and completely obscure the view outside. Cons: None -- other than large size

Pros: Lightweight. I also liked that I can use it on MY baseball cap. Perfect for anyone that wears eyeglasses. Cons: It can easily be deformed uf it gets smashed under your bag, but you get this in trade for the lightweight product. A fair tradeoff in my opinion. This was the third view limiting device I bought. It is the one I will continue to use. I used it on my check ride and it was simple to put on and take off even while wearing a hat, headset and eyeglasses. The visor that comes with it wasn't of much use to me since I use the hood with MY hat, so I gave the visor to my kiddo.
