I'm trying to decide what to get. Why did you pick this one?
I wanted one that I could use for diving in water that was not extremely cold and I wanted one that could be used while kayaking in cool weather. I also wanted one that could put on and taken off easily and be worn under a helmet. I have bought several Neo Sport wetsuits in the past and when I decided to buy a beanie cap this one was the only one that I considered. No regrets.
I typically don't dive in cool/cold water but wanted something to provide warmth for an upcoming trip to Hawaii. I wanted something cheap since I won't be using it often. This looked like a good solution. Note: I haven't used it yet.
Yes I did. And I really like it. It does try to slide back but that is more operator error of put my mask on. Once I mastered it, all was good.
I got this for my wife, mostly to keep her hair back, plus ad a little warmth since she gets cold easily. The head part fits fine but the velcro on the strap doesn't seem to tighten enough so maybe try one size smaller.
I picked this one because of the way it closed. It loops through a d-ring and then velcros shut. All the others only have velcro. I really like this beanie and have almost a 100 dives with it.
After buying several hoods I came across this one. I love it. it is less constricting than a hood and keeps me warm. I haven't wore one of the hoods since I got this beanie again. The coldest I will is 68 degrees though
#1. Help keep me warm. Most heat escapes thru the top of your head. It worked.
#2. Keep my hair out of the way. It worked!!
#3. I would get a smaller size than I ordered. But it worked OK even tho it was a bit large for my head. I am a female small build.
Selected this one for two reasons. 1) The price was right and 2) it was for my husband, who doesn't require a lot of warmth. We're tropics divers, and although I'm always cold, he requires only minimal protection to stay toasty. It fit pretty true to size and he loves it.
I honestly returned it, because I just don't like having my ears covered when in the water.
Bought this for my wife and i for a little extra warmth and to keep the hair back - its light, good price, and does the job- great extra item to the dive kit.
