Standard Hood - Extra Warmth
A significant amount of heat is lost through the head when sailing, whether you're in the water or not. A Neil Pryde hood will extend your sailing session by keeping you warm even when you take a dunking.
The hood is constructed from water sheading neoprene which is ultra strechy and has been designed with anatomical panels, with glued and blind stiched joints keeping water entry to a minimum.
Apex-Mesh neoprene is a sheet of neoprene that is heat sealed on one side only. The neoprene on the sealed side is called ‘closed cell’ neoprene and has a waterproof rubbery texture that cuts down wind-chill, making it popular among windsurfers and kitesurfers. The unsealed side is called open celled neoprene as the air bubbles, thus allowing water to soak through. This side is then laminated with a super-stretch jersey for maximum flexibility.
An efficient, water-tight seam created through a triple gluing process in conjunction with a blind stitch that does not fully penetrate the rubber. The technique allows precise curved seams and facilitates a snug, anatomically correct fit.
Anatomically designed panels ensuring a user friendly experience for everyone.
The Hood is available in sizes S, M, L and XL. As shown in the image below.
