The Waterproof H1 Icehood is a one size fits all stretchy 2 mm over-hood that covers all exposed skin. It's for use when immersed in ice-cold water of 0 degrees C. Just pull the H1 Icehood over your regular neoprene hood to get additional protection in severe cold diving conditions.
The holes for the mask and breathing device can be trimmed to perfection by the user.
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 personalised hood. Also provides excellent protection against Jellyfish in infested waters.
Waterproof H1 Icehood Features
- 100% Microcell or 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.
- Bonded High Quality Nylon Thread
Hypothermia vs Hoods.
The body reacts to cold and heat by adjusting the bloodstream to different parts of the body, like hands, fingers and feet. But the body can not adjust the bloodstream 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.
Sizes: One size fits all
