Thread: Hood or No Hood

  1. #1

    Hood or No Hood

    This winter I'm gonna need a new 4/3 wetsuit for surfing in Vabeach and OBX. Plan on getting the excel 4/3 drylock for my winter suit but not sure if I should get one with a attached hood or one with out. If anyone on here has these suits, could I get some input from you?

    I have a 4/3 dry lock and it's a very good suit. My vote would be for the hood/vest separate from suit.

    Oneil Mutant 4/3 is my favorite. Has a detachable hood. Wore it this morning without the hood. Dries faster than my hyperflex 3/2.

    No Hood for the warm, sunny days

    I personally hate wearing a hooded top under a wetsuit. 5/4 hooded infinity or drylock, ftw

    This is what I use for fall & spring in ME. The detachable hood is a great feature. The suit works perfectly with and without the hood...so go this route.
