      Comments about Pinnacle 5mm Merino Lined Hood:

      Great hood, I am a big fan of Pinnacle suits. The rubber on the neck is a great match for the rubber on a Pinnacle suit. Even if you don't have a Pinnacle suit, the hood would work fine. The only thing I don't like is that the rubber is only stitched on the bottom of the neck. I would prefer it stitched on the top also instead of it just lose. Maybe there is a reason for it being that way, but I don't like that part.

          Great hood to compliment the rest of your Pinnacle Marino Lined gear. It is comfortable and has kept me warm so far. The rubber seal that matches up with the wetsuit seals really does keep the water out.

              Comments about Pinnacle 5mm Merino Lined Hood:

              I own a Pinnacle 5 mil Merino Elastiprene dive suit and this is a great hood to compliment it. Very few people like to wear a hood but at depth, It is a must. Most heat is lost from your head and this hood minimizes this problem. For extended dives at extreme depths, use the 7 mil for all else, this is the one.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Is there a size guide for the hood?
              LeisurePro S  Pinnacle does not provide a size chart for their hoods, but a rough guide would be: Hood Size XS SM MD LG XL 2X Head Size (inches)20 - 21, 21 - 22, 22 - 23, 23 - 24, 24 - 25, 25 - 26
              Shopper  How do you know the size of your head? What do you measure?
              LeisurePro S  Usually the size hood that corresponds to your wetsuit size is a good match.
