About Henderson Microprene 2 Tropic Hood

Returning this year is Microprene 2 a significantly improved version of the extremely popular Microprene series. The big story here is that Microprene 2 utilizes 180% stretch Thermoprene Rubber throughout the Microprene Lineup which provides huge improvements in comfort and mobility. Microprene 2 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 2 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 2 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 2 is a perfect addition to all your dive adventures.

If you're a warm water diver and want the protective value of a Hood for added warmth the Henderson Microprene 2 Tropic Hood is a welcome addition to your exposure suit arsenal. The hood helps shield the skin from abrasion, UV rays and biological irritants such as Sea Lice.

Durable non-chaffing Flat-Lock Stitching is used on the 1.5 mm Hood. Hood allows for nearly total freedom of movement and stand up to the rigors of an active lifestyle. Hood stays securely on your head with a Hook & Loop Chin Closure. This proven design is available in 5 sizes from Small to 2X-Large.

      Comments about Henderson Microprene 2 Tropic Hood:

      I use this hood in tropic waters and protects my head and ears from sun. I also appreciate the padded protection during hard rains and bumping into coral and rock overhangs. One thing I don't like is hearing loss when material is wet and clings to the ear. I corrected this problem by cutting quarter size holes on each side and stitching around the holes to prevent fabric from fraying. I use this product 4 to 5 times a week for over a year now and is holding up great. If this hood was offered with ear holes I would have rated it a 5.

        Questions about this item:

        Shopper  My head measures 23" and neck 15". Looks like a large, but wanted to confirm that this new model is true to size? Need it to fit tight around my temples to prevent critters (barnacles) from entering my ear canal during boat bottom cleaning.
        KATHRYN K  This item did not fit me so I didn't keep it, can't remember the sizing either. Sorry!
