    I got a 95 ripstop jacket with a hood. The hood has wire in it and I don't really understand!

    do you tuck the wire bit back into the hood? It feels a bit dodgy sticking out, 'cause the wire is at 90degrees at each end.

    Please help me! Everyone I've asked don't have a clue!

    just cut one end and pull the wire out with a leatherman or pliers
    the wire is as good as ejector seats in helicopters,

    Thanks! Should I leave the hanging bit or tack it back underneath?

    again just bastardise it so you have full use of hood without the naff flap
