Questions and Answers for Oceanic 7/5mm Ultra Hooded Super-Stretch Diving Vest:
I am trying to figure what size to order .. my Hood is a medium but my wetsuit is a 2x - Is the size by the vest size or the hood size?

It generally goes by the size of the vest, although the hood will follow suit in size. That is one of the problems with hooded vests or hooded wetsuits. There is no way the manufacturers could account for all the potential sizing combinations, and unfortunately the majority of the time a person's head isn't the same size as their body.
Would like recommendation for suitable hood while diving in the caribbean water (protection from sea lice etc..)
