I've been looking for this item for a while & found an eBay seller with a few New Old Stock. Hood was shipped just this morning but the seller has 100% positive feedback, quick comms & was easy to work with (meaning he accepted my offer without being a jerk - not always the case on eBay). $60 for the ones in sealed bag, $50 if the bag is opened, $8 shipping. Retail is $470, Mitchell Instrument Co. shows $235.

No relation to the seller but looks like a good buy if you don't like wearing an arc flash balaclava under the hard hat ... & I don't. Maybe just maybe the hood will feel better than the balaclava/face shield combo.

... just had to buy a new replacement face shield and it cost more than that.
EBay items can be good or bad & that all depends on the seller. Most important is feedback & any number under 100% can be a red flag. Good photos are next - without a few clear, sharp photos the risk is really high. This seller passed both those requirements.

My voltage gloves always come from a non-eBay retail source. Hate to pay full pop but the gloves are always current test date & in a sealed package. Most eBay gloves are either old or older & who knows where they've been stored. Way too much risk for me.

Bought a 40 cal light weight bib & jacket that retails for $1500 & paid $200 including shipping. Brand new, sealed package, October 2013 date of manufacture. Hard to beat deals like that.
