A hood created by our Subea teams for all divers to protect their heads in temperate waters of between 16 °C and 24 °C. A 4/3/2 mm diving hood to be worn with your wetsuit, to adapt your insulation to the diving environment Perfect for water over 16°C.
4/3/2 mm thick neoprene balaclava
Stretch neoprene around the neck and ears to ease movement and best adapt to all shapes.
Air Expulse system: a system to evacuate air bubbles trapped in the hood.
The central grey band is made of stretch neoprene to best adapt to the shape of the head.
GBS (glued and blind stitched) assembly
The seams of the balaclava are watertight, sewn with GBS stitching (Glued and Blind Stitched): the neoprene is glued first of all, then sewn for maximum resistance (the sewing needle does not go completely through the neoprene in order to prevent water infiltration).
Adjust the thickness, adjust your warmth!
When diving, cold is your worst enemy!
Using the right thermal protection based on the water temperature is essential. To avoid having to purchase different wetsuits for different diving conditions, we created the concept, with 5 pieces that can be combined with your wetsuit depending on the temperature.
In this way, you can complete your thermal insulation with a hood, a neoprene top, a top with a hood, a 1 mm under-shorty or a 5.5 mm over-shorty.
Tips to look after your balaclava diving hood
1) Soak the inside and the outside of the wetsuit in clean water after each session. 2) Clean with a bactericide solution.
3) Rinse thoroughly in clean water.
4) Dry on a wide hanger in a dark and well-ventilated place.
Caution: the sun will cause the colours of the textile parts of the wetsuit to fade and speeds up the ageing process of the neoprene.
Zip fasteners can be cleaned with a toothbrush and lubricated with silicone grease.
Dry your wetsuit out of the sun and well clear of all sources of heat. Store your wetsuit on a hanger to keep its shape and conserve the neoprene.
Designed and tested by our teams and our technical partner in Hendaye (France) to approve the thermal insulation.
