    Pinnacle 3mm Beanie:
    I am 6'2" tall. The 2XL fit me fine. Not too loose; not too tight. Though I have not seen an XL-size; from the fit of this one; I believe I could have worn an XL as well. I wear a 2XL in a cotton sunhat. I like a hat as loose as possible that stays on and fits. I use this for swimming laps in a swimming-pool in cold weather; maybe 2-days a year. The cap and chin-strap were comfortable and easy to put on. The cap is flexible and soft. The cap covered my ears and forehead. The cap did not fill with water or bulge at the top while swimming. I tested it in spring-time in 65-degree water. The cap kept my head warm for that temperature. I did not have access to lower temperature water. My impression is this cap would keep my head warm down to 60-degrees. At lower temperature it would make it less cold. I have tried a 7mm hood and that was thick, stiff, and overkill for my purpose. For water colder than 60-degrees; I would try wearing two 3mm caps; or a 3mm-hood over this, before trying anything thicker. The cap has a thin feeling; very similar to my 1.5mm neoprene swim-shirt. I have not seen or tried anything 5mm thick.

    This beanie hood is OK. It would serve it's purpose for warm water diving. The fit is a little loose (if I went to the next smaller size I'd get a brain squeeze) so exhaled air from the regulator gets caught in the hood and starts pulling on the chin strap.

        Comments about Pinnacle 3 mm Beanie Hood:

        Not as comfortable as the other product reviews lead you to believe, at least not for me. The chin strap is too short. I've tried wearing both as a chin strap and under the chin across the neck. First understand it's not that I ordered a size too small. The beanie fit around my head, if anything is slightly too big, but a smaller size beanie would probably be too tight, and forgot how tight the chin strap would be. And although a larger size beanie might have a more comfortable chin strap fit, the beanie itself would be way too big.

        It appears to be a quality product, that's why I gave it a 3 and not less. Since I purchased this primarily to use under my 7 mm hood for additional warmth, I could just cut the strap off. But that kinda defeats the other reason I bought it, rather than just getting a warmer hood from Waterproof than the one I have now (a 7 mm Pinnacle dry hood and that's not even 7 mm, but that's another story - you can see my review of that product), so I could use it in warm water. However that won't work because the beanie would fly off every time I splash. I'm kinda bummed, I like the beanie, but the chin strap is just too uncomfortable.

        I was very disappointed to find that this beanie was no thicker than my 1mm beanie that I paid $10 for. The pinnacle is well made but is extremely thin and definitely not 3mm. Most certainly not worth $30.

            When a full hood is too much but you need a little something for insulation on your head, this is it. This works great for dives with the a few short drops below the thermocline.

                Questions about this item:

                Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
                CHAD R  it looked to be the best one for me to wear under my dry suit hood and keepme warm on cold waters.
                Shopper  is the beanie small enough around the face so that you mask will seal to your face?
                Steve S  The opening should be ok for a mask, but if needed, you can simply trim the opening with scissors or a sharp knife to customize the fit.
                Shopper  what beanie do you recommend for lap swimming? I am often cold while swimming. Which one is warmest, works best in swimming pool? thank you
                CALVIN R  The hood that is pictured is different from the hood I bought so I'm not sure my reply is pertinent. The one I bought is just OK. It works but for me is just a little uncomfortable in the chin strap. I've mused it for scuba diving. Hope this helps.
