This hood is visually identical to the raider wastehound helmet. The mohawk type appears on females that wear it, and the three horned type appears on males. It is only repairable by merchants. Weighing 2 pounds less, it has damage resistance equivalent to a power helmet, and provides an extra 25 equipment HP.
It is given to the Lone Wanderer by Eulogy Jones in Paradise Falls, as a reward for convincing Bumble (with a successful Speech check or by using the Child at Heart perk) into leaving Little Lamplight. A child slaver is waiting outside the cavern to pop a collar around Bumble's neck. Return to Eulogy as he will now award the hood as payment. This mini-quest is available after the Lone Wanderer has visited Little Lamplight.
Though it no longer serves any purpose, this item is still found in the game files for Fallout: New Vegas.
