Fourth Element

Fourth Element 5mm Neoprene Dive Hoods


Manufacturers Description


The Fourth Element Neoprene 5mm hood has a smooth Glideskin interior and is produced using stretch neoprene to provide a comfortable fit. The short collar suits both dry and wet suits, and micro holes in hood vent air with minimal water ingress.


  • Hydrolock Seams are double seals that virtually eliminates water ingress into the suit. An internal back panel prevents water entering through the zip from reaching the back. The neck collar is lined with glideskin neoprene and fits snugly around the neck giving a smooth, complete seal.
  • The hydrolock inner neck seal is designed to fit snugly on the neck without being too tight. It can be relaxed a little by stretching it over a pudding bowl or diving cylinder overnight
Dive Type Scuba
Material 90% Neoprene
10% Nylon
Neoprene Thickness 5 mm
Wetsuit Hood Type Hood

Measured head and used sizing guide on 4th element website but hood was way too small, ended up travelling to dive shop to find hood that fitted - 2 sizes up!

Great quality hood, but sizing very small had to reorder bigger size

25 July 2011

Comfortable and fits well but order the next size up to your measurement it's a very tight fit

15 December 2011

Great hood. Very warm although found mine to be a little tight. Might consider trying one size up.

5 January 2012

Absolutely brilliant hood, do buy a size bigger than suggested though

2 April 2012

Check your size on the Fourth Element site first - I came up as an extra large, which I wouldn't have ordered otherwise

19 April 2012

nice hood

25 May 2012

Quite thin but works well dived last night comfort was good. The trick is just to trickle air from your mask into the hood this make a nice the hood feel really warm

18 March 2013

Seals very well to well some times to well clear ears

19 December 2013

Outstanding hood and really comfortable - but sizing is an issue - I would say go at least 1 size up

3 December 2014

I use my hood for kayaking ,as I roll over in cold water , it is the perfect product to buy , and its actually better than I expected ,I do recommend it .

24 May 2016

Great hood, others I have tried end up hurting my jaw (no idea if this is common or I'm just weird), but this is a great fit, and was nice and warm in 10deg at Capernwray.

21 June 2018

great fit if a little tight at first but super comfortable underwater nice and warm and no problems equalizing.

26 December 2018

Although the hood is 5mm thick, it is not bulky and is very comfortable to wear. I’ve used it at the NDAC Chepstow in 8 degrees and it kept my head warm and toasty. I was on the border between XL and XXL so went for the bigger size which was a good decision as the hood fits very well.

Enjoyed diving with this hood, it was comfortable having the hood underneath the chin as well as on the chin as well . also was fine carrying the hood by placing my head through the face area using it as a necklace as such when walking to entry points for dives.

I ordered a fourth element hood at a good price and the cheapest postage to Dublin, Ireland of any company on the web and it arrived within 4 days! Thank you! Excellent service and the hood is exactly as advertised.
