It is an Extreme Cold Weather Sleeping System hood.  There is also a  pair of booties made out of the same material.  I know they were used by the Army, I am not sure what other branches might have used them.  Below is a picture of the label inside the one I have.

The label is only in one sock and is sewn under the elastic.
