The accessories

As mentioned previously, buying a hood, gloves and booties to wear with your wetsuit is a great idea for all users. Whether it's extra warmth for deep waters and winter use or to protect both skin and coral against damage from collisions, they are a precaution well worth taking. Choose super-stretch neoprene for hoods and gloves to make them easier to get on and off – a 5mm thickness is ideal for winter while a lighter 3mm neoprene can be used during the summer months. Gloves, hoods and boot ankles should be as tight as possible to avoid water getting in and it is handy for boots and gloves to have grips – Osprey does a great range in all three.
