Hoods are the covers attached to a vehicle to protect men and goods from wind, rain, sunlight and dust storm. They are used in horse-drawn carriages, cars and trucks and also in the coupling part of train cars or more recently for boarding gates at airports.
Umbrellas and hoods both protect people from wind, rain and dusts. When no protection is needed they should be compact and put away taking as little space as possible. And expanding and contracting jabara structure is often utilized. The jabara also reduces vibrations, and it also protects passengers from possible accidents. Durability, being waterproof, inflammability and self-extinguishing characteristics are also preferred.
