It can be a myth that a person loses much of their body heat through the head area, but the fact is that it has a crucial role in our thermoregulation. Therefore, it is obvious to use a hat in windy, wet, or cold weather. The cooling process in the water is even faster. Therefore it is wise to use a hood for all water activities.
Our product range includes various hoods - for divers, surface rescuers, and boatmen. The thickness of the hood is usually between 2.5 mm and 7 mm. Thicker hoods, designed for our harsh conditions, often have an extra thermal insulation layer to help keep the head warm.
When choosing a hood, be sure that it is not too big or too small. If a hood is too big, the water runs through the hood, and we catch a cold faster. In the second case, the too-small hood can impede blood circulation, resulting in lost consciousness. Therefore, we recommend trying the hood before buying it!
