About Henderson Thermoprene Men's 7/5 mm Hooded Vest

There's no better way to boost warmth than to add a hooded vest to your exposure protection gear. Wear it with board shorts in tropical waters or layer it with any type of full-length suit for cold water diving. The dual-density 7/5 mm design uses panels of different thickness at key locations to maximize both heat retention and diver comfort. Thermoprene's natural stretch, about 75-percent more than standard wetsuit material, also means that this vest is easy to slip into or to layer with another garment without feeling any uncomfortable suit squeeze.

Thermoprene material is both glued and blind stitched, which not only clamps down on water seepage, it also provides tremendous durability. All edges are finished with a Lycra trim. A revolutionary new one way flow vent purge valve, vents regulator exhaust from the hood while preventing cold water entry. This design is a Henderson exclusive and not available on any other hooded vest.

Divers seeking a great value will appreciate Thermoprene's balance of performance and price. The latest technological innovation from Henderson, this new material delivers greater flexibility and improved features not found in standard neoprene wet suits, yet at a reasonable cost perfect for the cost-conscious buyer. Hooded Vest is available in 7 sizes from X-Small to 3X-Large.

Comments about Henderson Thermoprene Men's 7/5 mm Hooded Vest:

It was recommended to me to get a hooded vest instead of a hood for cold water diving and I am happy with the results. A little hard to put on and take off but worth it during the dive.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Michael F  is it likely that this 7/5 hood/vest will fit under my Henderson thermoprene 3mm jump suit, or be too tight?
BRANT E  I use it for that as a supplement in colder conditions. No Problem with fit.
Shopper  How much weight will I need to add if I'm going from a regular 7 mm hood to this hooded vest?
PAULA G  Always do a weight check before going on any dive, but I would say not more than a pound.
Shopper  If I wear L wetsuit but an XL Henderson hood, what size should I get? Also, what kind of effect will wearing this have on buoyancy? About 2 lbs or so I'm guessing?
BRIAN B  I wear an XL suit and ordered an XL hooded vest. I only wore it once and had to add 5 lbs. I realized it was overkill and went with a 5/3 vest instead. It really made me buoyant! But to answer ur question about the hood size XL is XL for the hood. If u wear an XL b/c of a large head like me u will need an XL
