"A hood woven using traditional Hyrulean methods. It's made from a sturdy material to protect traveler from the harsh sun and weather."
— In-game description

The Hylian Hood is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a head armor and Link can buy it at either Enchanted in Kakariko Village or Ventest Clothing Boutique in Hateno Village. It can be upgraded by Great Fairy and dyed at the Kochi Dye Shop though this is purely cosmetic. Though its description claims it protects the wearer from harsh sun and weather, it does not actually grant Link heat resistance, shock resistance, or cold resistance thus Link will be effected by heat, cold, and lightning as he normally would when wearing it as it only increases defense and grants no other effects even when fully upgraded.

As with the rest of the Hylian set, the Hylian hood is an easily and cheaply obtained piece of armor that can be accessed early in the game, providing mid-level defence. However, later pieces of armor possess additional effects or better defence.

Link is shown wearing the Hylian Hood while riding a horse in the official artwork which the Link Rider amiibo of the Breath of the Wild series is based on. However Link near wears it in any Recovered Memory cutscenes unlike the Champion's Tunic and Hylian Trousers. Also if worn with the Phantom Ganon Armor, its cape will replace Phantom Ganon's cape.


It can be enhanced by the Great Fairies.
