The vest fit perfectly overall- i am a muscular 5 foot 4 woman but it was very hard to get on and off due to the tightness of the hood. However I trimmed the neoprene around the hole for the face to make it bigger and it helped somewhat. I haven't worn it in the water yet and i may have to make some adjustments to have my mask fit on top of it. It seems to be very well made though

I bought this as an added layer for diving since I get cold easily. It runs large in the body but is very tight/constrictive in the neck/face area with the hood. Perhaps that would feel better once in the water, but the body was too loose to work. Too bad, great price.

My wife and I both purchased these ice hoods. These are the older models which are 2mm all around (new models have 5mm on the actual hood, 2mm on the vest).
We ordered them to address the lovely surge of freezing water that ran down our necks using a regular hood as we entered the water. Works like a charm. Also found the 2mm hood to be more than enough insulation diving in Lake Tahoe and Monterey Bay.
