The hood issued to me by my dept is the bare minimum, so I got this to replace it. I like how it covers the back and chest, so there is less chance of it popping out while I'm in a serious fire situation. The elastic around the face is perfect, it stretches easily and goes wide, but shrinks back to its original size.
