Does the hood tuck into a pocket at the neck or does it detach ?
The hood does not tuck into a pocket. Nor does it detach.
The hood isn't that large but the material is thick so you'll know it's there.
There is no hood pocket and the hood does not detach. However, Outdoor Research DOES make a hoodless version of this sweater that is otherwise identical. I have one of each, but I like the hoodie better. The hoodless version is a bit better looking, but the hoodie is so warm and practical that it gets worn more. Either way, this sweater is absolutely wonderful.
No, the hood is fixed and does not tuck away. It is similar in style to a regular zip-up hooded sweatshirt, though much nicer looking and warmer. Hope this helps.
The hood is neither detachable nor concealable.
No and no. Sorry. Cozy hoody though.
It does neither, it is permanently attached.
