/ Adding a hood to a synthetic belay jacket
The synthentic belay jacket thread reminded me - I managed to buy a women's Arc'teryx Dually belay jacket a few years ago for a bargain price, and it has been very good in the Alps (I'm about as good as a lizard at keeping warm out of the sun).
However, it was a demo model, and has no hood, so not so good when it's snowing/very cold. Does anyone have any ideas of where I could get an aftermarket synthetic hood from? The jacket is red, but I'm not that fussy. In a perfect world I'd get a hood sewn onto the jacket...
My google skills have so far let me down on this one, I appeal to the UKC hive mind for suggestions.

Serious question: why wouldn't any comfy hat do? Quilts seems a great way of cutting down on weight, but then why bring a hood specially when you're likely to have a hat anyway?
If Tundra can't do it, then the Buffalo XL hood looks ideal.
Cheers for all the suggestions.
I did this sort of thing with a Monatane Toasty jacket. I stitched on some velcro to the collar and used my Buffalo XL Hood. I have also added a couple of poppers to secure it and also for the chin-flap as the velcro sometimes ices up and becomes useless.
