      Comments about Mares 5mm Trilastic Hood:

      Never really liked using a hood. Usually do 5 dives a day so to keep warm on the last dives of the day and the night dives I broke down and bought this hood. I was really surprised how warm it was. Now I use it on all my night dives.

          This hood fit perfectly for me. I am 6 feet tall and have a 24 inch head circ. There are no fitting charts so I guessed what size to by. Product was purchased to dive in 60 degree water and did a great job keeping me warm. Easy on and easy off. No air pockets or water movement around head.

              Comments about Mares 5mm Trilastic Hood:

              During my check out dives, I shunned wearing a dive shop provided hood because it was far too uncomfortable. That is not the case for this hood. As comfortable as a hood can be, great fit and a super value for the money. It helped keep me comfortable in 46 degree water.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              CHAD M  Cheep
              L W  The face seems kind of small on this mask, can the face seal be cut to fit? Will the edge frail?
              DIANNE P  I think the image is misleading - I have this hood and dive in relatively cold water (47-57 degrees) I want something that's snug but I don't want it interfering with my mask. It doesn't. I had an Akona hood before this one that someone borrowed and never returned - they did me a huge favor! I was always battling with pockets of air trapped in the hood - even though I had poked holes in it. I haven't had the same problem with this one. If you really wanted to cut it - I think you could get away with it. Frankly - I'm happy with the hood and I'd buy another one if this one was borrowed and never returned :)
              Shopper  Since there is no sizing guide and I wear an XL wetsuit, would u recommend a XL hood or just a large size?
              LeisurePro S  One guide you can go by is wet suit size like you said. XL suit = XL hood. Or you can get a rough estimate from your hat size. XS = 6.5" hat size, S = 6 7/8" Hat size, M = 7 1/8" hat size, L = 7.25" Hat Size, XL = 7.5" hat size.
