In this case, its the one you wear ... not the one you live in. It is fantastic to have a light weight suit with the hood attached. I love it!

Questions and Answers for Pinnacle Inferno Zip-on V-skin Trilaminate Diving Hood:

  • Carol:

    Hi. I where a skin and a 5 mill already and dont need to invest in a different system. What I want is an easy to get on hood that will tuck into the neck of my wet suit. Will this do it? This is for Carib diving but I dive off liveabords so am always cold by the end of the day.

    Hello Carol, this hood is designed to zip-on a suit. If you are looking for a hood like this that would work for you take a look at this hood: This would give you the same warmth as a 2.5mm neoprene hood.

  • Bill:

    First, does this v-skin inferno zip-on trilaminate hood differ from the 5mm v-skin inferno zip-on just by the merino lining thinkness difference? Is the trilaminate the same thickness material as the v-skin inferno wetsuit and the 5mm just thicker? Also if I have 23.5 circumference around head, but also 19.5 neck, what size would I need? Would the 5mm be tighter around the neck than the trilaminate? Thanks for any answers.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at

    Hello Bill, the thickness of this hood is only 2.5mm. Yes this would be the same thickness and material as the inferno wetsuit. Going by your sizing I would suggest a size large.

Pinnacle's new V-skin line takes all the technical features that Pinnacle has developed over the years and incorporates them into a layering system that will add significant thermal protection without buoyancy.

The V-skin line has taken Pinnacle's patented Merino™ lining to another level by incorporating it into a tri-laminate material with a microporous membrane and high stretch outer lycra. This highly technical combination of materials will form perfectly to the body without causing restriction; the form fit creates the perfect water layer held in place by the impermeable membrane. When out of the water the microporous membrane acts as a barrier eliminating wind chill while allowing excess heat and moisture to escape. With strategically placed highly breathable bi-laminate Merino™ panels the new V-skin line is the most comfortable and thermally efficient product on the market today.


The new Inferno is the latest innovation from Pinnacle; it separates the thermal component
out of the wetsuit so that it can be used in any watersports activity.
