When you need an IR hood, this is the one you get

  • By milan from SALT LAKE CITY, UT on Sunday, February 17, 2008
  • Pros: Small, Comfortable, High Quality
  • Cons: Expensive
  • Review: Looking at hoods in general there is a wide range available on the market at the moment, most of them are oversized and look incredibly stupid, it might also be in your way. The jeppshade is one of the more expensive ones but it is the smallest one out there, not much larger than a pair of sunglasses, comes in a nice case and is easy to put on regardless of head size, both directly on your head or even on the outside your headset. If you do not mind the few extra dollars, go with this one, it is comfortable and you can flip the front part of it up if you suddenly need to look out.

Works well, but not with glasses/sunglasses

  • By A Customer from Santa Monica, CA on Sunday, April 06, 2008
  • Pros: Light, sexy, COMFORTABLE, easy "flip up" for transitioning to VFR
  • Cons: expensive, doesn't work with glasses.
  • Review: These are light, compact, but best of all--COMFORTABLE. Bottom line: buy them if you don't wear glasses. If you wear classes, go with the hood.

Good aid to IFR training

  • By A Customer from Tampa FL USA on Wednesday, July 07, 2010
  • Review: These shades are great for blocking the outside view and only allowing the student to view the instrument pannel and controls inside. I prefer these to other "foggle" type devices since they are open and do not require the student to look through scratched or smeared lenses. My only complaints are the straps are not quite long enough to fit around all headsets and the band tends to slip up on the student's head in the back.
