Waterproof H2 Hood 3/5 mm Neoprene Hood Vented
This 3/5mm neoprene hood is a high quality Waterproof vented neoprene hood, a very comfortable 5mm anatomical hood for divers with 3mm bib, also available as H2 5mm hood without bib, both equipped, like the previous model Waterproof H1 3/5, with the innovative Hood Air Venting System that made the Waterproof neoprene hoods so popular.
Lightweight protection against the cold when diving in cool water
The H2 is one of the thinner bibbed hoods in Waterproof's H2 series, a 5mm hood with a slightly thinner bib that ensures that the diver's head is well protected in cooler water. This is because the sensitive head gives off enormous amounts of body heat when diving, which can lead to rapid hypothermia of the diver even in not quite so cold water. Therefore, it is advisable to wear a light neoprene hood even in not so very cold water to protect yourself from hypothermia on longer dives.
This H2 hood consists of a mixture of 3mm and 5mm neoprene to offer maximum cold protection and at the same time optimal comfort. The 5mm neoprene in the head area keeps the diver's head warm, and the 3mm neoprene in the collar and bib area provides a comfortable fit around the neck without constricting the diver when worn.
Very high quality neoprene hood for demanding divers
Like the previous models, Waterproof shows with the H2 series that there can be enormous differences in quality even in simple neoprene hoods. High-quality material, anatomical fit, robust workmanship, practical vent valves are just some of the arguments that speak for these very high-quality diving hoods.
The neoprene material used is 100% CR limestone neoprene, a very environmentally friendly neoprene material that is very hard-wearing and resistant to salt water.
High wearing comfort
To minimise the constriction of the diver's head, the H2 Hood is 3-D anatomically pre-shaped for a very comfortable fit. For easy donning and doffing, the Waterproof neoprene hoods are coated with smooth Glideskin Seal that sits comfortably against the skin.
Practical valves prevent air accumulation in the hood
Every diver knows the problem of air in the hood, an uncomfortable air bubble at the top of the head that can mess up the whole buoyancy control, or at least lift the hood off the head enough to let in a gush of cold water. Experienced divers have always used scissors to cut ventilation holes in the hood, but this of course allows cold water to enter at that point and can also cause the hood to tear.
Waterproof has an ingenious solution for this - the H.A.V.S. Hood Air Venting System. This system consists of a one-way valve that ensures that the air that enters the hood can immediately escape to the outside, but water cannot enter the hood from the outside. And the Waterproof 3/5 mm neoprene hood has two of these air vents, so that air can escape in any head position.
Good visibility in murky water
The reflective logos on the forehead and neck of the H2 Waterproof 3/5 mm neoprene hood with collar ensure good visibility even in murky water.
Also available in thicker versions
If you need a little more thermal protection for your head while diving, you can find these high quality Waterproof neoprene hoods for divers in our online diving shop also in a thicker version, as H2 5/7mm with bib or H2 5/7mm without bib.
