A smart solution; just pull the H1 Icehood over your regular neoprene hood to get additional protection in really severe cold water diving-conditions. The H1 Icehood is also easily adaptable for use in tropical and warm water conditions, just cut out the facial parts and you have created your personalized Hood.
Hypothermia vs Hoods. The body reacts to cold and heat by adjusting the blood stream to different parts of the body, like hands, fingers and feet. But the body can not adjust the blood stream to your head. This to ensure the brains function during all conditions. That is why the colder it gets, the more heat you loose from the head by radiation, or even worse, by conduction in the water. You keep warmer with an effective hood.
A 100% MICROCELL CR NEOPRENE – More expensive but in fact the only neoprene that really works for diving. Excellent durability and insulation far better than other Neoprene qualities, like SBR, SCR etc.
