Rating: Aqua lock review
Reviewer: Jason G.
Simply amazing "locking" system. As much as the choice and fit of a wetsuit is a personal thing, the aqua-lock system delivers. Theres no slippage of gloves, boots or hood giving a snug and not slack feeling of security and comfort. Loads of sizing possibilities meant I was able to choose a wetsuit that fit me personally...oh, and 7mm - VERY warm! I dive at altitude and in glacial waters quite comfortably with Hendersons 7mm suit.

Rating: Good match
Reviewer: Don C
I bought the full Aqua Lock package (suit, hood, gloves, boots)in 7 mil. This hood works very well with the suit. kept my head warm in the cold water of the northeastern US. Had no problems maneuvering my neck or head. Snug fit with no discomfort. One-way air vent prevented air from being trapped in the head Works as designed. Highly recommend this hood!

Reviewer: John S Braubitz Jr
The 7 MM gloves are warm but unless the water is below 50F, I would recommend a thinner glove. Dont get me wrong, they do what they are supposed to do but the thicker the glove, the less dextarity that you will have. I ordered a 3 MM as well which I will use in the summer. I will use the 7 MM in the late Fall and early Spring. JB

Rating: Great Hood!!
Reviewer: Cliff Lewis
The Aqua Lock gives you peace of mind about haveing a full range of motion while underawater. I was a little dissapointed when I turned left or right the hood would pull out a little. But, after seeing other divers hoods coming outin the back and mine would just bunch up a little while trying to come out...I was impressed. Very warm as well and I never noticed the 53 degree water I was diving in. I would like for Henderson to make the rubber "aqua lock" a lot bigger o wider so it would grip more for those of us who are more active underwater so when we turn our head you know it is not moving at all. Definitely reccommend this hoodie to everyone.

Rating: Dive hood for winter whitewater kayaking.
Reviewer: TODD N.
I live in upstate NY and whitewater kayak year round. A dive hood under my helmet that has stretch flexibility is important. The 3MM Hyperstretch provides the perfect mobility. Mostly you remain out of the water, but must still be prepared if things dont go exactly as planned.

Questions and Answers for Henderson 7/5mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Hood:

  • david:

    How do I know what size hood to order for my head?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The size chart is based on height and weight.

  • Paul:

    Does this AquaLock hood work well with non-Henderson wetsuits, which dont have the AquaLock design?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Paul, yes this work great with the non-aqua lock suits.

  • Pete:

    I have the Henderson 7/5 hood and want to know if there is anything that provides more protection from the cold. Or, do you know anybody who doubles up on these hood by getting a size larger, and one over the other?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Pete, divers normally do not double up on thick hoods. But if you are looking to add a little more warmth to your head take a look at some of the Surf/Swim hoods http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-282/Hood-Surf-Swim-Hood.html. They will not be big and bulky and will add a little more warmth to your head.

  • Jim:

    I am a little new to diving but this hood feels a little tight in the neck... 220 lbs , 61". Too small or normal....note..its not broke in yet either. Thanks Jim

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jim, you need to go to the next size up. You want it sung everywhere but the neck you want it loose there.
