want to order the titanium dive beanie. does it have adjustable chin strap? Others have choked me, What size should I order. I am 200 lbs and 511" with chubby cheeks. thanks, Mary
Hello Mary, yes it has a velcro chin strap for adjustments. As for the size going by your sizing I would put you into a size XLarge. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
I need to keep my ears dry all the way I swim. Does any of the hoods advertized does this?
No. Hoods for scuba and snorkeling are designed with thermal properties in mind to keep the user warm and not to keep them dry. They work by allowing a layer of water inside. The head/body heats the water and the material insulates it to retain the heat.
I am looking for protection from water entering my ears while swimming in an indoor pool. Earplugs do not work well and fall out easily. Will the Ocean Quest 2mm Premium Super-Stretch Titanium Dive Beanie hood work well for swimming pool lengths,say 20 at a time, without one feeling too constricted? I am 5 ft 6 ins and 130 lbs and wear prescription goggles(designed for squash)or can omit the goggles for exercising in the pool. You can call me at 604-516-9098 Canada or give me a telephone number i can call from Canada. Thanks.Ali.
Unfortunately this type of product is a wet suit cap, which means it keeps the user warm by letting a thin layer of water inside. The body (in this case the head) heats the water and the neorprene material insulates it. You will get wet and water will enter your ears.
I am interested in ordering the Oceanquest Beanie and dont know whatsize to get. I am female and have lots of hair to manage. I would guess that my head size is average but I noticed when reading the reviews people commented that these beanies run large. Any advice?
I wear a medium sized beanie from most all manufacturers, including the Ocean Quest. I don't find it to be sized terribly different than any other manufacturer. Unfortunately hoods and beaniers are one of the few items we rely on the consumer to have an idea what size they may be as the sizing charts are more of a guideline based on body size and not all that accurate as one's head rarely has anything to do with one's body size.
Hi, am interested in the ocean quest beanie but not sure what size to order. My head circumference measurement is 22.5". What size should I order? Many thanks.
Unfortunately hoods and beanies are one of the few products we wind up relying on the customer for fit. The sizing charts given us by the manufacturers are VERY general and really have no real relation to head sizing. And none of them give us hat size info nor head circumference info to go by.
My husband just purchased this beanie for me (size small). My head circumference is 21 3/4". It fits "snug," i.e. no gaps around the face, etc. When dry, the chin strap hits at the end, i.e. lots more velcro to use if it stretches, but also a little worried if it doesnt stretch when wet that it might come undone underwater. Any recommendations? Should I try a Medium or stick wih the Small as it will stretch when wet / over time?
Im a lap swimmer, swimming long distance listening to radio (I use a Uwater7 Radio with Ex-1 waterproof earphones) and Im looking for a beanie with a chin strap to swim laps not for the warmth but for holding my ear buds , wires and radio from being pulled off, silicone caps are too constrictive, tend to come off the ears and I hate the feeling because it retain an air bubble , lycra caps have no chin strap and get saggy after some time uncovering also the ear buds ... its hell (sort of) would this one be a good solution ? do you have people that have used it for this purpose and do you have a thinner model (still with a strap)
The perfect choice for helping keep the chill off in warm water diving and snorkeling conditions. Made from comfortable, 4-way stretch neoprene the 2mm Premium Super Stretch Beanie is designed to be worn by itself in warmer water by divers who don't want the restriction of a fully bibbed hood but still may want slow the loss of heat through their head during a dive. It can also be worn underneath your cold water diving hood for a bit of added insulation in very cold conditions.
