The Ultra Hooded Vest Adds-Extra-Warmth on those Cold Days with a Layer of Super Flexible 5/3mm Nylon II Neoprene where you need it most. The Vest has a 3mm Skin-In Face Seal that Cuts-Down on Water Transfer. The Attached Hood Eliminates Cold-Water Leakage into the Suit. Vest is equipped with a One-Way Vent that Eliminate Trapped Air. All Seams are Glued and Sewn for Strength and Durability. Hooded Vest is covered by a 12 month limited warranty.

      Comments about Oceanic Ultra Men's 5/3mm Hooded Vest:

      I admit it. I am not JUST about having a good fit. I am picky about colors, too. The picture of this makes it look like it is all black. Thus, I was surprised to discover when I received it that the V of neoprene that runs from front to back over the top of the head is actually a greyish blue color. I think it's the same blue that is used in the Oceanic Ultra wetsuits (which is what I wore in my OW class).

      I found that an XXL Oceanic wetsuit was the right size for me in my OW cert class, so I ordered a XXL in this hooded vest and it fits me just right.

      There is a piece of tape glued over the seam that is in the face skirt, right at the center of the forehead area. This seam tape is not shown in the picture, either. It looks to me like it MAY be an issue if I want to trim the neoprene around the face back. As it is, it covers a LOT of my face and will overlap my mask quite a bit - thus why I'm considering trimming it.

      Or I may still return it for a refund - but probably not. The only diving around here is in quarries, which are COLD. So I will probably want to have a hooded vest. And this one for $30 seems like a way better deal than any of the others I see, which are way more expensive.

      I have only tried it on at home, so far. But, I wore a hood with a skirt in the quarry for my OW certification dives and that hood made a HUGE difference in how warm I was (I tried one dive without it). I'm expecting that this hood with the vest will be even better. I think it will give me a better overall seal at the neck, too. The skirted hood had some bunching of the material that tucked into my wetsuit that resulted in the occasional blast of cold water down my back.

      I use this under my wetsuit to layer. It's great on a dive boat because you can doff your long sleeves.

      Use this when water temp is between your favorite wetsuit and your dry suit.

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      RICHARD P  cheap, and on clearance
      Shopper  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
      MARC D  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.
