You guys must be packing watermelons for heads! I never ever have a problem getting cowls on/off. I have been at it for a while though. Maybe it just takes practice? :lol




Your head must be smaller bro, ive seen some shots of you in some of your begins cowls i have and its def looser on you. MY J cowl fits...FITS.. like its molded for my head its tight, but comfortable. The lining is a must. Def a must on my Bob because of the stiffness. Some guys might squeeze their cowl on, but no matter what, these linings will alow you to SLIDE your cowl on and help prevent smudging your black eye because of it.

Re: BEST Cowl Lining Tutorial (w/ pics)


question, do you only glue around the neckline, or do you glue on the inside of the head part as well?

Well, I was going to do this, but I don't think the fabric I bought is slick enough. It's stretchy enough, just not slick enough. Oh well, back to the fabric store.

Re: BEST Cowl Lining Tutorial (w/ pics)


I've got a 23.5" head and have put on dozens of different cowls. PJ cowls, Bob Cowls, DE cowls, random cowls, all sorts of cowls.

I dunno I mean I'm not trying to rain on your parade or anything I'm just saying I've never needed anything like that and I'm using the same cowls. Now if you have a 24.5" head or so I could understand it.

I think maybe your head squishes with the cowl, Matt...

I measure the same 23.5, and I still cant get my Sonar on no matter what I try

Yeah, I have a 24" head and my cowl is supposed to fit a 24" head and I still have a hell of a hard time getting it on.

Re: BEST Cowl Lining Tutorial (w/ pics)


Not exactly the type of lining I was thinking...

....I prefer a soft liner that forms to the interior of the cowl. Rather than sort of loose like that.

Cool for functionality though :up

My cowl is a two piece, so I have a neck to put on before the cowl and when I usually put the neck piece on I have to wet my head and stretch the top of the neck quite a bit. Will the linking help with that or will I still have to stretch the neck nice and wide to get my noggin through it?
