We're typically in water temperatures between 47 and 55 degrees. I've yet to have any discomfort from cold! Love the long bib; it tucks inside my suit and keeps me toasty warm. The one down side is there's no ventilation on top and too much air gets trapped. It's a minor annoyance for the joy of not getting cold.

Poor design.

It has very poor ventilation for releasing any air pockets that get trapped within the hood. Air pockets form inside the hood throughout the dive making it difficult to hold proper buoyency under water....Read complete review

It has very poor ventilation for releasing any air pockets that get trapped within the hood. Air pockets form inside the hood throughout the dive making it difficult to hold proper buoyency under water. I found myself constantly pushing down on the top of my head to force the massive air pocket out that had continuously formed. I plan to solve this by cutting a small hole in the top, but i'm kind of disappointed that I have to.

Neck extension too bulky

Cons

  • Poor Craftsmanship
  • Poor Fit

Comments about Blue Reef 6.5 mm Neoprene Hood:

Part that tucks into wetsuit is way too big and needs to be folded over, so creates gap for water to flow in/out. Chills!

    Comments about Blue Reef 6.5 mm Neoprene Hood:

    If the bib were not so long and bulky, then I would definitely give this a rating of 5. However, it has to be bunched up and folded over to fit in my wetsuit. I plan to buy another hood and keep this one only as a spare.

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          MICHAEL B  Basic Hood. Not worn yet.
          Shopper  How do I know what size to get?
          LeisurePro S  Hoods are always difficult to size. One guide you can go by is wet suit size, ie. XL suit = XL hood. Or you can get a rough estimate from your hat size. XS = 6.5" hat size, S = 6 7/8" Hat size, M = 7 1/8" hat size, L = 7.25" Hat Size, XL = 7.5" hat size.
