    Comments about Bare Sports Bare 7 mm Sport Men's Step-In Hooded Vest:

    This is a well made, warm hooded vest that is easy to put on and off. I wear a ML size and had to increase one size in this vest. The ML felt snug when I tried it on in the house, but after the first dive, it was way too tight especially around the neck. Unfortunately I couldn't return it. I eventually ordered the next size larger in the Elastek version - more expensive but more elastic material. The vest is worn over a 7mm suit, I added 6 lbs to compensate for the extra buoyancy of the vest.

    The large zipper that ends up on the right side of your face is an annoyance that you will have to get used to. I wear a Mantis Full Face mask. The mask needs to fit underneath the hood, and it requires a bit of adjustment to clear the zipper. Once adjusted it works great. Regular mask won't have any issues.

    For what its worth, I am a golf ball diver, typically diving 6-10hrs/day, 4 days/week. Also rec night dive in the Channel Islands, CA. I am using this vest in low 50's water, it does keep my core warm.

      Comments about Bare Sports Bare 7 mm Sport Men's Step-In Hooded Vest:

      I use this 7mm vest with a Bare 7mm Elastek jumpsuit. With this combination, my core warmth has yet to be an issue. I've used this combo at water temperatures as low as 40F around a depth of 60', and my core was toasty. My feet and hands were the limiting factors. Highly recommended.

      I'm 6'4", about 210lbs, and wear a regular Large Bare wetsuit, I ordered the Large Tall fit vest, and it fits very well. My only complaint, if any, is my chin doesn't stay in the chin 'pocket' so well, but the seal of the hood is very good.

        Comments about Bare Sports Bare 7 mm Sport Men's Step-In Hooded Vest:

        I wear it over a full 7mm and i dont feel the water enter the suit till about 10mins into the dive. The Arm seals are bit large. Do not order a size larger, it is cut to fit over a 7mm suit. If wearing alone get a size smaller.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Leisure Pro is great, I ordered the wrong size and no problems exchanging and quite fast.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  I have a Bare 7m size M/L what size stepin hooded vest should I order?
        LARRY C  I typically wear a 7m wetsuit in the M/L size also. I found the Bare M/L step-in hood too tight in the neck, of all places (and I don't have a huge neck). So I stepped it up a size to a Large. I do hate the huge zipper on the side of my face, it does take some time to get used to. I use a full face mask (Mantis), so the zipper is more of a hassel, and can be the source of an air leak, but I make it work. If you use a normal face mask, then this should not be an issue. That said, this is a very versatile piece of gear. Depending on water temps, I will use this with various wetsuits from my 7m to my 3/2m suits. I also ended up getting the Elastek version, and it is holding up quite well. I dive for a living, 3-4 days a week and have found this to be a great piece of gear, well worth the price.
