Rating: Perhaps Im just too tall
Reviewer: Kimera H.  -  View all my reviews
I took a trip to Catalina Island and used this vest to supplement my 8 mil wetsuit and it was very effective. It kept me MUCH warmer than I would have been without it. My only complaint is that as I dove the top of the hood would ride up and the bottom would fall down off my chin, and its probably just because Im too tall. It would be nice to have more sizing option, but overall a very good product.

Rating: Henderson 7/5mm Thermoprene Hooded Diving Vest
Reviewer: Jason P.  -  View all my reviews
Great vest. I dive in 57-60 degree water in a 5mm wetsuit that I was hoping to be adequate but on the second dive Im always freezing. I added the 7mm vest and it is the perfect addition. I did two 50 minute dives and was perfectly content, not cold in the slightest. The product fits well and although I felt like I was in between a L and an XL (510" 205lbs) I settled on the large and it fits great, the XL had to much free material in the neck / chest area.

Questions and Answers for Henderson 7/5mm Thermoprene Hooded Diving Vest:

  • Paul:

    Has anyone used these hooded vests before? Recommendations? Any other brands that are reputable?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hooded vest have been around for a long time. Many people commonly use them underneath a suit for added insulation. There really are no manufacturers making a poor quality product at this time. That in mind you'll want to pay attention to the sizing chart using your waist and chest/bust measurements as the most important catagories.

  • pete:

    are there zippers on this vest and if so, where are they. My main problem is taking on and off.

    Aaron  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hi Pete, Thermoprene material has 75% more stretch than standard neoprene. So no zippers are needed, to get in and out of the hooded vest. The easiest way I find to get out is to work one arm out and then roll it off to the other arm.


Thermoprene® delivers quality and performance a step above our Premium Neoprene®, offering 75% more stretch and featuring glued and sewn seams on all suits. All jumpsuits feature integrated spine pads and zipper seals as well as Freedom flex knee pads.
