    Q:

    Anyone use this hood while wearing glasses? I've had issues with other products that come in close around the temples and squeeze the arms of the glasses.

      A:

      No problems with wearing sunglasses with it, the hood isn't tight around the ears.  It fits more like a snug cap, than a tight hood.

      Yes, Jmarden, this is my preferred neoprene cap when I kayak and surf-kayak.. I wear glasses with a strap, and I wear a helmet over the cap. I do not have any difficulties with comfort.
      Sometimes when the arms of glasses are squeezed, I go to my eye glass store, and they mold them closer to my head..
      Good luck,

      I wear this hood with my wireframe glasses. It keeps my head and ears warm.. It is comfortable and hasn't damaged my glasses. I am a sea kayaker. I don't roll wearing the hood, so can't give you feedback on that.
      NRS is good about returns. Try it and if it doesn't work out, return it.

      A:

      I use this hood routinely in winter with sports glasses and a neckstrap. I don't find this to be uncomfortable, but the hood is not stretched tight around my face and head. I find the hood to be warmer than I usually need without it having to be tight like a wetsuit hood. I don't wear it unless the air temperatures are below 55°F and even then, I sometimes remove it if I'm training hard and get overheated.

    Q:

    I measure my head at 25". If I tighten a cloth measuring tape I can get it close to 24 3/4. I am wondering if this article will be too small?

      I found my hood to be very pliable and its easy to adjust the chin strap as well. I'm sure it will fit your head just fine , & it's a very effective hood to be frank.

      A:

      The Sea Hood is quite stretchy, so it will probably fit. Our Hassle-Free Returns process - http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/returns.asp - makes it a no-risk proposition to give it a try.

      Terry,
      I measured my head. I'm 23.5 inches. I never released or thought about a
      head's circumference.
      I just tried my hood on again. The hood's not tight, but slight pressure
      on the ears. No big red marks on my forehead nor hat head because I'm bald.

      Hope the info helps.

      I have a smaller head at 22 1/2 , the s/m fit me just fine. I think the L/XL will fit you.

      I am using this cap during Eskimo roll lessons in 49/50 degree water. To my pleasant surprise it really kept my head toasty warm. It also is cool looking and comfortable

        Comments about NRS Mystery Sea Hood with Bill:

        Much warmer than I expected. I regularly paddle in all weather conditions. This hood is much warmer than I expected. My ears are nice and toasty down to near freezing temps. For sub-freezing temps I use it as a base under a thicker insulating layer. High quality material and craftsmanship. Understandably there is some noticeable loss of hearing.

          I love having a neoprene bomber hat! My boyfriend loved it on me so much, he bought one for himself. He has a poor tolerance of the cold, too. He's been boating for 12 yrs with experience ranging from Class V ww to Lake Superior.
          Because of the usual "where is my stuff?" confusion that happens after a paddle with multiple people, I put reflective patches on my hat that mark it unique.

          Used this on a nasty rainy day while practicing rolling my kayak. The bill did a great job of keeping the rain out of my eyes, and keeping my head warm both in and out of the water. It also helped prevent water rushing into my ears when rolling.
