      Comments about Waterproof H1-5/7mm Hood with Hood Air Venting System (HAVS):

      I bought this product based on recommendation from a friend diver. I tried at a shop first and it felt super comfortable. I tried the L size, and it felt a bit tight, I tried the XL and it was too big. I ordered the L, and at first thought it was tight, but in the water it was super comfortable (47F). I did not feel cold at the head at all (can't say the same about feet or hands).

        Great hood, best I've owned. Once it's on, it's a very comfortable fit and very warm. It is a little tight when pulling it back off, but it is a good trade off for how it performs in the water when it is on. I love it!

          Comments about Waterproof H1-5/7mm Hood with Hood Air Venting System (HAVS):

          Purchsed this item for a shark diving trip off of Guadalupe. Water was in the 65-69F range. I get cold VERY easily.
          -Vents on top were great! No bubble head or ruining product by trying to add my own vents.
          -Using sizing chart I purchased a size M. After 2.5 days of diving it seemed that around the face was a bit looser. (Instead of ordering a smaller size, I may purchase a LavaCore Hood to put underneath).
          -Neck was longer so I could tuck it into my Semi-Dry neck and didn't have trouble with it pulling out.
          -Didn't seem super restrictive moving my head side to side.
          -Smooth on the inside and I didn't have any problems with facial abrasion.

            Comments about Waterproof H1-5/7mm Hood with Hood Air Venting System (HAVS):

            Great hood. I have a half a dozen dives on this so far in everything from a flooded quarry at 39 deg F to the Northeast Atlantic at 44 deg F. It feels far warmer than my last 7mm hood and also fits better tucking into my drysuit without bunching up at the top.
