Alder Plasma Hood

Instore Price: €39.99
The Full Length Balaclava Style Alder Plasma Wetsuit Surf Hood is a great fitting, snug winter solution for those cold days in the water! Constructed with 2mm neoprene which will prolong the cold winter water which causes brainfreeze, complete with soft lining and peak to divert rain and shed water quickly after duck-diving! Under and over neck seal to stop flushing, perforated ear panels to improve hearing.

Manufacturer: Alder



We had trouble keeping up with demand for these last year. As usual with Alder, this is a thoroughly well thought out bit of kit.

This hood features a draw-string arrangement so that you can reduce the face aperature down in size in severe conditions. There is a band of Liquid Seal Taping inside the neck. Once you have pushed you head through this, the hood itself is superstretch so stretches to fit whatever size head is required. Tip... If you warm the neck seal up by working it with your fingers for a few seconds it goes on a lot easier. All the other features are there too such as the anti-drip peak and the double collar, designed to prevent flushing into the suit.

Especially worthy of mention is the desisn of the drawstring arrangement. The toggle itself is round so that it does not protrude up into the line of sight (unlike some that we have seen). The "piece-de-resistance" however must surely go to the "Popper Parker". The drawstring features a popper which locates it onto the neck... why? To stop the wind from lashing the damn thing across your face every couple of seconds... brilliant, so simple but so effective.


Double-lined 2mm 100% 'X' stretch neoprene with glued and blindstitched seams. Has perforated ear panels and adjustable face opening.
