Scuba Gear Reviews by Shaun Lehman
Rating: Great hood 11/27/2012
I borrowed this hood from my instructor when other hoods of similar price were too tight. This one is about as comfortable as the more expensive hood I tried on and warm as well. Highly recommended.
Sherwood Elite Adjustable Strap Fins
Rating: Good fins, byut adjustable strap? 10/16/2012
These fins seem great and fit well based on my shoe size (not dive boot size). However this weekend when I tried them in the water they fell off a few times. The straps ARE NOT adjustable, and cannot be tightened. They are powerful though and seem pretty comfortable. The quality of construction is great other than the (nono-adjustable) straps which also seem a bit spindly. Also the Add-on spring straps that are marketwed with the fins DID NOT fit on them.
Ocean Quest Ez Spring Fin Straps
Rating: Bad marketing 10/16/2012
These straps dont fit the Sherwood Elite fins they are marketed with as an upgrade. Did not receive return shipping either even though this was the case.
XS Scuba 5/3mm Pyrostretch Diving Hood
Rating: Seems tight 10/16/2012
Using the XS Scuba sizing chart, this hood in medium was EXTREMELY tight. I swapped it for a large and the hood was still very tight in the chin and neck -even on my girlfriend. Ended going with a similarly priced hood which fits much better.
