    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Great hood
    Reviewer: Josh S   |  5-8-2018

    I have owned many hoods in the past. This one is the best so far. Room for improvement - yes. These come in different sizes - big PRO. The material is flexible, soft and warm. I wish there was more coverage on my neck.

    When swimming in temperatures below 70 degrees, I experienced "brain freeze" when my ears were immersed in the cold water. This made lengthier swims almost intolerable. The wetsuit cap fits perfectly and keeps my head and ears warm. Now the only barrier to my long spring swims is fatigue. My whole body feels warmer because of the Patagonia wetsuit cap.

    Love the hoodie, it fit pretty tight on me though, wish there was an XL option. It fit my kid better so now he's using it.

    Great fit. Warm, not too claustrophobic.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Perfect Cold Weather Cap
    Reviewer: Ken G   |  11-12-2013

    I have tried several hoods for cold weather kiteboarding and windsurfing. This one is the best. All of my other hood fit way too tight on the neck and make me feel like I am being strangled. This one fits perfectly and comfortably. Keeps me nice in warm so far in 40 degree temps. Haven't tried it yet in colder temps than this since winter is just beginning, but I think it is going to be fine for the 30 degree days ahead! NOTE: it doesn't cover the neck area as much as my old hoods, but I also just bought new drysuit that come up high on the neck, so it's fine for me that the cap doesn't go lower down the neck. Especially since the neck seal on my drysuit already is pretty constrictive on my neck, I'm glad the cap doesn't go any lower.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 perfect!

    Worth the cost!! I have been a huge fan of Merino wool prior, and the Merino liner in this cap allows warmth with-out any itch. Ordered a size small, as my hat size is 7, and with my bald head it fit snug, yet comfortable. Used it last week in Iowa windsurfing, day temp 48 degree,s and never once felt cold and YES I was in the water as I fall ALOT! Before I ordered I actually called Patagonia and spoke to a rep there. Very helpful, and they care about quality and about the earth we live on. Cool all around.

    This cap is really well made. I have two other caps (the Quiksilver Cypher and O'neill Squid Lid) which do the same thing, and I have to say that the production quality of this one is at least two levels above the other two. The cap is fully lined on the inside and the outside material is relatively thick. So it keeps you very warm. I used it in ~53 degree water and ~39 degree air yesterday, cause I generally prefer a warm cap to a hood. The thing that looks like a brim on the photo doesn't really come out. The front just extends to cover your forehead up to your eyebrows. So there is no brim, which in my opinion is a good thing... cause my experience with caps like this one is that the brim always flips up when you duck dive and then you gotta pull it down with your hand... which is the last thing I wanna be doing while I'm trying to get past the pounding zone. The cap is relatively deep. It covers almost my entire head. The size guide is almost spot on. My head circumference is 22 and ¼ and the M is just a sliver too big -- sometimes it flushes during duck dives and the front covers my eyebrows all the way. I also tried the S and the M seems to fit better regardless of the small amount of flushing. With wetsuit caps a smaller size doesn't necessarily equate less flushing, cause a cap that's too small for your head will come off/flush easily, too (in addition to feeling uncomfortable). Overall this cap is really warm and really awesome.
