Questions and Answers for Bare 5mm Elastek Super-Stretch Diving Hood:
The sizing chart for the hoods is based on weight and height. I am short (57") but have a large head. Are there possibly size guidelines based up head circumference?

Hello, this is the only sizing chart that we have from Bare.
Is this hood what you would recommend to wear with the 7mm full Elaste wetsuit? I rented a generic hood and the bib bunched up so I got cold water down my back because the neck didnt seal properly. So I dove in the 7mm with no hood and am thinking that the 5mm will be warm enough. If the water temp. is really cold I have a vest with attached hood in 7mm.
What is your return policy if I try the hood on and its not the right size? I could wear either a S or a M according to your sizing chart.
Thanks for any suggestions before I order.

THE ELASTEK STORY
FULL-STRETCH DONE RIGHT. Full-stretch suits are not new. However, a full-stretch suit that combines legendary anatomically correct patterning for a 3D shape, premium components like a colormatched G-lock zipper and superior construction and graphics, stops the press. The BARE ELASTEK wetsuit line utilizes the latest in neoprene laminates that provide uninhibited fl exibility and stretch with a silky-soft feel that won't be felt in any other suit. Place the BARE ELASTEK side by side any competing wetsuit and you will not only be able to feel the diff erence, you'll see it too.
Our suit has a 3D shape that demonstrates our dedication to craftsmanship, while the competition will look quite flat. This shaping is key in elevating your comfort and keeping stress loads on seams to a minimum. Take a closer look at the detailing of the ELASTEK: color-accented seams, glossy 3D inks, sublimated graphics, stainless-steel zipper pull, new and more flexible FORMTEK kneepads.the list goes on. If you are a diver that appreciates the details in design and desires unbelievable stretch, this is your next suit.
