It is estimated that 20% to 40% of a divers body heat escapes through his or her head. Whether you dive in warm or cold water, you’ll probably want to wear a Dive Hood when you’re diving. By insulating your head, your entire body stays warm.

Most dive hoods are made out of neoprene, which is a very spongy material. This traps the heat produced by ones body.

At The Purple Octopus, we offer Mares dive hoods of various thickness and sizes!
