Motorcyclists Cold Weather Hood

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Although this hood looks a bit sinister. It was the height of fashion for a winter ride on your motorcycle or sidecar. All leather with a fabric lining. Each button has embossed Russian text. I'd guess it dates to the 1940s. Its mint condition new old stock. Note that the face protector can be folded up and buttoned in place.
It displays very well on the included museum quality stand.
