Hoods In-Store Now
We’ve now got a bunch of different wetsuit hood options in-store for the coming winter season.
From Patagonia we have the R3 Insertable Hood. The R3 hood is made from flexible, 3mm neoprene and lined with warm, hydrophobic low-pile, recycled polyester. The seams are internally taped to prevent leakage.
There is contoured 3-panel construction which conforms to the head for comfort while an adjustable cord provides a snug fit around the face. It has a 1.5mm neoprene neck bib that tucks into your suit to prevent flushing, and a brim to shield your face from rain or sun.
We’ve got a couple of options from O’Neil. The Hyperfreak 3mm Coldwater Hood features O’Neil’s exclusive TechnoButter-2 Neoprene, glued and blind stitched seams and a wind-resistant smooth skin exterior. It also has an adjustable drawstring for the face and a visor to block the sun and channel water from the eyes.
If you want something a bit more minimal to take the edge of and keep the wind out of your ears try the O’Neil 2mm Sports Cap. It’s got wind-resistant smooth skin exterior, flatloc stitching, an adjustable chin strap and a visor for sun and rain protecting. Xcel have the top of the line Drylock TDC Hood. This 2mm hood features Xcel’s premium TDC Thermo Dry Celliant lining.
This epic hood also features a double flap neck dam to tuck inside and outside your wetsuit collar, a sturdy bill to keep the rain off, and SmoothSkin face seal with an adjustable elastic cord. It is made with premium 100% UltraStretch neoprene and has glued and blindstitched seams finished with inner Thermo Dry seam tape.
Ripcurl are always a good option for anything neoprene related, and the Flashbomb 2mm Surf Hood is definitely going to keep your head warm! Features include Ripcurl’s exclusive flash-dry lining, E3 tape on the internal seams and a smooth skin exterior to reduce wind chill.
