The product description does not seem to give the thickness of this hood. If it does, I'm blind and missing it. What is the thickness of this hood?
JOEL M Hi Eric, I hope this is not a duplicate of what I tried to send from my Fire. I bought two of these aiming at my daughters. I have a hood which is 3/2 thick and this is thinner than my original hood. I have used this hood and it seems fine, although lite. I have liked it for snorkeling on a trip I am on right now in the Bahamas and next week we will be in the Keys. It fits me well although my daughter says she feels that it is tight around the neck. I do not feel this.
My guess is tht the hood is 2 mm thick; certainly thicker than a lycra skin, but not something I would depend on for warmth if the water is 70 degrees. I will keep an extra in my bag to double up hoods, or to use on warmer days.
Best of luck, Joel
