In 2006 at the Canadian Meet my friend and hood making mentor Dennis Maynes gave me a hood unlike any I had ever seen. It was love at first sight. Its shape was somewhat familiar but it had been customized to give it a very unique look. The hood was made by a truly gifted hood maker named Rob Coleman. Dennis and I worked on a similar pattern off and on for 6 years until we came up with my design. I contacted Rob and we became friends., I paid him a royalty and named the hood after him.
In December of 2013 Rob Coleman passed away. RIP Robbie, I will miss our chats.

The Cole-Man 'Exotic" is made with a lighter calf hide and laminated with durable, legally harvested Exotic skins. The hood also comes with a two tier center deck, off setting throat slash and Turks knot.
