I wanted protection from stinging organisms floating in the water column during warm water dives. I didn't get it for warmth. Other Lycra hoods rode up on me in the front, there wasn't enough material to stay in the neck of my wetsuit, so it would ride up and the flap would come out as the dive progressed (even when I got the largest sized hood). This one has more material so it stays tucked in my wetsuit collar. It is large, and it might be too large for smaller people since it's "one-size fits all". It also can puff up more with trapped air from exhalations, but you can put a slight hole in the top to remedy that. It seems like it is well made and should last. It's about $5 more than my other Lycra hood, which my wife now uses, but you get more material, it seems thicker, and it works better for what I wanted. I guess I liked it enough over the other hood because I bought a second hood after using it on a few dive trips (so I would have a spare in case of loss or damage).

    Comments about Henderson Lycra Hot Skins Hood:

    Have used this extensively to keep my long hair from blocking my view and maintaining a good seal on my mask without hairs getting trapped between.
    It does puff up with air on exhalation which widens the opening, allowing hair to escape so will be placing a few holes at the top to fix that, thanks to the advice I found here. Everywhere I go, divers ask about my hood and want one. :-)

          This item is perfect for those hot, sunny locations where you need some protection from the sun. The hood also prevents your wetsuit from chaffing your neck.

            I needed a hood to keep all my long, flowing hair in check. I was worried that this wouldn't fit my itty-bitty head, but it fits great! Can't wait to try it in the water soon.
