This object is designed to be comfortable and easy to function in a protest environment, if the police use unnecessary ways of retaliation to your protest you can easily pull over the hood and the plastic visor, will protect your eyes from gas, and water. Also from debris around you that you could come into contact with. I used a plastic vacuum former to get my inside head shape, which I attached the plastic visor (found in a skip) using pop rivets. I then used a glue gun to attach the plastic frame into the hood. I could also add padding inside the hood for comfort, if necessary.
