Well worth it
If you shave your head and have to apply sunscreen to it and you wear earplugs in the winter, this is a far better option. It keeps your head warm and helps to fill in any little space around the neck as your steamer stretches.
Really enjoyed my Balaclava
Had worn a hood years ago and decided it wasnt for me because water would get trapped in it and get in my ears. Decided this Season, to try a balaclava style hood; and it made all the difference, really enjoy it. So far the balaclava, style hood kinda seals out water when I submerge. And when the sun is out it gets warmed up because it is black. Would recommend it. :)
Its warm, it works. Order it.
Fits great I haven’t used it and hopefully won’t until thanksgiving
Love the stuff and I’ve been promoting it big time in the northeast mass and the NH Maine cost
Does the job
This is a great hood if you’re looking to have a versital wetsuit. I was thinking about getting a hooded 4/3 but I was hoping for more versatility. This hood plus a 4/3 will get me though the winter for sure. I am happy with the hood. It doesn’t leak. Runs true to size. Fits nice and snug. The only down size to the removable hood is that there is a bit more meterial around your neck. I typically don’t pull the hood down around my neck because I feel like it starts to choke me a little. A hooded wetsuit won’t do this as much since there is less rubber over all.
