could I wear outside my full 3 mm ?
I know it sounds weird, since my 3 mm full siut fit me very tight don't think I can wear inside so my thinking is wear medium outside , does it make sense
It would defeat the purpose if you wore it on the outside, except for your head would be warm. I suggest getting the size you need. One size bigger shouldn't effect you too much. Underwater it all loosens up. I ware a size xxl wetsuit and a size xxl wetsuit vest hood. I can't tell the difference in tightness. But I can tell u I love my vest hood. It ads the extra warmth I need.
Yes, you will want to put this on the outside of the fullsuit.
Yes, but with possible problems. Not having the bottom tucked in will let a considerable amount of water in. If that water is cold - you will be cold. Plus, I wouldn't want the bottom of the hood flapping around and interfering with other equipment, like inflation hose and regulators. It's not a very good idea and I don;t think you will be happy with using under this scenario.
You can wear it outside if it is snug to the rest of your body - if not snug (i.e. visible creases) it will leak water to your neck.
I don't see why not.
I wouldn't as these fit skin tight already, and if you were to get a large enough size to fit over your 3 mill the hood will be to baggy around the neck & shoulders.
Hope this helps
These tend to run pretty small. I ended up returning mine because it was too small so tame that into consideration. Also I don't know if you have ever worn a hooded vest but they are extremely hard to get into, and that's when not in a wetsuit... Add the decrease in flexibility that wearing a wetsuit adds and I'd think putting it on would be nearly impossible. But they have a great return policy so give it a try, just get bigger than you think.
I always wear mine outside, works as good as inside and can be removed without removing wetsuit,
Hope it helps
I am the DSO at the Downtown Aquarium in Houston Texas. My divers really like this hooded vest. They are sized right and very comfortable. They dive everyday in them and for many hours at a time. The other divers now want them so it looks like I will be buyimng more.
