    Used this hood in SoCal diving off the channel islands. This hood fits true to size and feels very good. Restriction was only what should be expected by wearing a hood, otherwise very flexible and non binding. there was minimal water flow and it kept me very warm, even at 100 ft and 51 degree water. minimal compression at recreational depths, keeping you warm and comfortable. I am very pleased with this hood, the air vents on top work very well for eliminating trapped air in the hood. Good hood, super comfortable and kept my head warm without over heating at all. great hood!

    I've used the hood 5 times so far, and its comfortable, sometimes feels a little too big, the exhaust air from my 2nd stage tends to push air into the hood, most times letting cold water back in and giving me a small chill. I've only used it in Dutch Springs, and right now the water is about 55-65 degrees, I think its right for the price, with some extra rubber in certain spots, it could be better.
