About Henderson Microprene Bib Hood

The big story here is that Microprene utilizes 180% stretch Thermoprene Rubber throughout the Microprene Lineup which provides huge improvements in comfort and mobility Microprene is an ultra thin, hi-stretch neoprene that is superior as a base layer, but is also a good choice for any tropical environment It boasts the same basic characteristic and features as thicker cuts of Thermoprene, providing outstanding insulation characteristics, elasticity and durability for a warm and flexible fit

Wearing Microprene under a thicker wet suit is like super-charging your exposure gear The extra layer of insulation helps create a more effective water barrier to significantly reduce water transfer It also adds a minimal amount of buoyancy, helping divers keep their weight belts as light as possible When worn alone Microprene provides benefits similar to that of skin suits, but are warmer and more durable than the traditional skin style garments Warmer, lightweight, and comfortable Microprene is a perfect addition to all your dive adventures

Questions about this item:

Eric D  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
