I, personally, hate tight wet suit hoods and rarely wore one, but diving in cold water in the winter in the UK, you need something.
I decided to get one of these and loved it. As someone else said, it doesn't feel cold when you put it on wet, it's easy to put on and take off, doesn't feel like your head is being crushed and yet still keeps my head warm enough in single digit water.
I've never found mine slipping over my face or anything like that, so, in my experience, the less than claustrophobic feel has no downside.
I bought mine about a year ago and it's been worn in water as warm as 12C and as cold as 5C, but I seem to have lost it on a recent trip to Vobster (8C!) so was back on Simply Scuba looking to replace it, which I will be doing so soon!
