I have the 7 mm pinnacle hood in a small. I know you can trim the face hole to fit. Where should the good hit your face? How do I know of I need to trim it? What is the best tool to use to trim it?
You want reall good protection round your face particular if you are doing winter diving. If your mask skirt in landing on top of your hood around your face, you may want to put your hood on then fix your mask to your face and place the hood edge over the top of your mask. On your descent you need to lift the edge of the hood round your face so that the water & pressure get access to your ear so your can equalize otherwise you do risk a barotrauma. In addition this removes any air under the hood that can make this hood floatly.
if you need any more information you can email me offline at billsaunderson@hotmail
Have some great safe diving!
Put your mask on, you can even pop your snorkel in your mouth while you're at it -- if the hood is getting in the way and bugs you, then trim. I just tuck the hood over the edge of my mask seal and I never trimmed.
I have one, but I dud not have to trim anywhere, although if you need to, I'd use a very sharp razor blade to trim.
You can always trim more,but cannot add it back!
Put on your favorite mask, see where it's edges are (you can use a make up pencil) . Then put on your hood and mark any overlap spots and trim. But only if it's really bothering you or moving your mask.
