€15.00 - €95.00
Diving in cold water requires proper equipment preparation. First of all, emphasis should be put here on choosing an adequately warm wetsuit. It is possible that a dry suit with an additional insulator will be necessary. However, do not forget about additional accessories which will prevent the heat from escaping from your body. The most important of these, apart from gloves or neoprene boots, is certainly a warm diving hood for cold water.
It should be known that the human head of all parts of our body is the least protected against the cold. This is due to the almost complete lack of insulating fatty tissue. In addition, blood vessels in the head do not react as quickly to temperature changes by contracting as other parts of the body. In addition, many people experience headaches when they are cooled down. It would not be wise to expose your head to the cold if you are protecting the rest of your body. Therefore, when going under water, it is necessary to provide adequate thermal protection for the head. This is guaranteed by high quality neoprene diving hoods, of which you will find a wide selection at Divezone.pl.
Choosing the right cold water neoprene hood for divers depends on the temperature of the body of water in which you will dive and the depth of this dive. It is recommended to reach for a diving hood already when the water temperature falls below 22 degrees, although there are people who wear a hood even in warmer water. It may seem that in such water it should not be cold, but staying longer in it may cool your body down (remember that water cools down 25 times faster than air. For diving in warm water, comfortable 3 mm thick neoprene diving hoods will work best.
If you plan to dive in colder waters, choose hoods with a neoprene thickness of 5 and 7 mm. On the other hand, for ice diving, winter diving or deep diving it is best to reach for hoods with the thickness of 7 - 10 mm. Divezone even offers models with fleece lining inside for maximum warmth and comfort.
If you dive in a neoprene wetsuit, in order to ensure even higher effectiveness of the warm diving hood in cold water, it is best to choose a product with an additional collar, which can be put under the wetsuit. This will protect us against water getting under the suit material. An even tighter solution is to choose a neoprene hood, which has an additional neck orifice. It is a special seal which prevents the skin from coming into contact with water and water from getting under the neoprene.
It is worth noting that cold water neoprene hoods for divers also have a reduced cut-out area for the face. Some even feature separate openings for the mouth and eyes, all to minimise contact between bare skin and cold water.
