Henderson 7/5mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Hood
Rating: Henderson-7-5mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Diving-Hood Great Product 06/09/2012

It works great with my Aqualock wetsuit. It will keep you warm. Make sure it fits snug and you will be happy with it.

Henderson 7/5mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Hood
Rating: Henderson-7-5mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Diving-Hood Great Suit 06/04/2012

The Henderson 7MM wet suit keeps you warm but you dont overheat in warm water either. I went out in 45F water and I was not cold. I also used it for my dive lessons in a pool that is 85F and I did not overheat. The only problem that I have is that it is hard to zip the suit by myself. The material around the zipper catches in the zipper whether you are zipping or unzipping it. Once you get it on it is like your own skin. It is very flexible and fits like a glove. You have to remember that you are going to need another 16 pounds of weight to counter the buoyancy. Overall it is a great wetsuit. I would definitely recommend it. JB

Henderson 7/5mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Hood
Rating: Henderson-7-5mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Diving-Hood Too Small 06/04/2012

The Henderson gear bag was free with my purchase of a 7MM Henderson Aqualock wetsuit. The bag is okay but it is too small. I was expecting an over sized bag that would fit most of my gear. It is barely big enough to put the wet suit in. There is no way that I would buy it for the price they are asking for it. JB

Henderson 7/5mm Aqua Lock Hyperstretch Diving Hood
Rating: Henderson-7-5mm-Aqua-Lock-Hyperstretch-Diving-Hood Warm 06/02/2012

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

Ocean Quest Ez Spring Fin Straps
Rating: Ocean-Quest-Ez-Spring-Fin-Straps Unsatisfied 06/02/2012

I ordered the Oceanic Viper fins which came with a medium size. I have Henderson Aqualock boots but the spring straps forced my toe into the boot causing them to turn numb. I ended up using the rubber straps that came with my fins. Dont waste your money on the spring straps.
