Very good 2nd layer

By JAMES J.

from San Francisco, CA, US

This is my second purchase of the same vest. I got hundreds of dives on the first before it started to fray. Remained decent insulation throughout. I layered it under a 3 mm (very old and thin) suit. Recommend using a rash guard underneath -- easier to slip on and off.

 

Functional and Well Made

By Sandy P.

I dive regularly in tropical 80-82 degree F water. I wear this vest with board shorts on every dive. I start the dives without the hood. If I get chilly toward the end of the dive, I pull the hood up. The vest shows little wear after months of constant use. I agree the length is a mite short, but it's a minor gripe. The quality, good design, and clean look make this vest a winner. When the water gets into the 70s this winter, I'll switch to my Waterproof 3.5mm full suit, which is another great product. I'm 5'10", 42" chest, 195 lbs. with a biggish head, and a Large is a perfect/snug fit. If you're bigger than that I think you'd want a larger size. If you're just a bit smaller than that, I think the Large would still fit well.

Almost Perfect

By Rene

Very warm and comfortable, however I'm tall (1.85) and the length of the vest is barely enough

Is there a thermal fleece like /polar tech like fabric on the inside of the vest? I believe the pinnacle vest has this type of inner.
A shopper on May 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: No thermal fleece inside it. It is very comfortable to wear under a wetsuit. I use mine for cave diving and it works superb. The HAVS system really doesn't function well from a horizontal position so be sure to add a few small holes on the back of the head(Below the mask strap) to allow air to escape or it will be rather annoying(Like all hoods).
What is the measurement of neck in the size S?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know,
but,if you normaly use medium,in other suits,use small in waterproof wetsuit.
its allways one size less than the one that you where normaly.
My chest size is 100cm, 39inches. M size will be good for me according to size chart. However I have bit bigger head. I use L size hood Waterproof H1. What size should I Choose?
A shopper on Sep 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think the M will probably work well for you. I am a 42" chest and the L fits me perfectly, as the size chart says it should. My head is on the bigger side too, so I would assume the vests and hoods are proportionate to each other.
Is this for men or for women?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They come in sizes for men and women. My daughter and I bought these for our last trip to the channel islands in CA and absolutely loved them.
I wear a large waterproof 7mm wetsuit (with a little room to spare), and an xl 7ml hood (no room to spare). To add warmth, What size hooded vest should I get? Large or XL?
First Name L on Jan 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I wear a dry suit hood with a wet suit for easy head movement. I don't like the confinement of the full hood. Jersey is not that cold. for you XL hood.
