          Comments about Mares 5-3mm Men's Trilastic Hooded Vest, Black/Gray:

          Fits well and doesn't "bite" into your skin like other hoods and exposure gear does. I felt comfortable and not over exposed or too hot. It will stretch with wear, as its designed to, but I found it a great additional layer under my wetsuit.

          • Feels true to size

            Comments about Mares 5-3mm Men's Trilastic Hooded Vest, Black/Gray:

            I purchased this to use under a 3mm full wetsuit (or a 5mm) because I was unhappy with neck seals from traditional hoods and unhappy with my Henderson hooded vest which is too stretchy in the hyperstretch material, allowing water in as you move. This Mares hooded vest is perfect. Fits tighter, very elastic but more resistant to water flow, longer in torso, fits better under a wetsuit, and the face seal is great. The face seal is delicate as are all of these very smooth seal materials so handle gently.

            • Sizing:
            • Feels half size too small

            Questions about this item:

            Shopper  I plan to use this together with my 3mm full wetsuit. Is this to be used under the 3mm suit or over?
            LeisurePro S  You can wear it either under or over, but it tends to leak less and keeps you warmer if you wear it over your suit.
            Shopper  If I plan on wearing this over my 3mm wetsuit, should I order up 1 size to allow for better fit?
            LeisurePro S  I would say no. This suit comes with super strech neoprene around the waist and arm area, so hopefully, getting it on over your 3mm won't be a huge problem. You just don't want the hood to be too big, or you will get water flooding in around your ears. Yikes! So I would stick with the size you would normally order, not one up.
            Shopper  Am I able to trim the fabric around the face of this hoodie? I have trouble fitting my mask in the small face hole, but I don't want to cut the fabric if it will affect the hood and it's seal. Please let me know! Thank you.
            LeisurePro S  Yes you can cut the hood. I would recommend that you put a couple of stitches at the threading afterwards so it will not compromise any integrity.
