Looking for neoprene jacket with large hoodie

Postby GrodanBoll » Sun Mar 28, 2021 2:49 pm

Hey guys,

I´m a kitesurfing instructor and hence get much sun, a bit too much sun since I've gotten sun damaged skin, so I figure that I have to be extra careful with the sun onward. I'm looking for a jacket with a huge hoodie so that my face is shaded as much as possible. Been googling, but I don't really find anything good. The best I found was this one: https://www.epickiteskiteboarding.com/g ... ne-jacket/ but I'd like a much bigger hoodie, something similar as to one the grim reaper is wearing. So suggestions are welcome!

Neil pryde used to make a long jacket. Came with a face cover also. Trench coat style, no liner to get wet and heavy.

Jacket I got 20 years ago. It's a promo Seadoo neoprene XL jacket with a big hood.

The new ones Seadoo have now have the small hoodies, let me see who is making this style now.

Mystic has the ocean jacket and a range of hoodies. I'd rather take a large brim hat tho. Something like this https://www.mysticboardingapparel.com/m ... -cap-91693

I wear a Rip Curl surf hat. Works great keeping the sun off my face and out of my eyes.

The one you want is called the "Hyper Tour Over sized Neoprene Jacket" those have the huge hoodie that you want. Get it a size large so you can be dracula on the water.

I use this:


A hoody rash guard made of Lycra or something like that. It claims to be 50+ UPF. It covers a good portion of your face. It also has a sun visor.

Don't pull that bar!

Jokes aside, you may check a sailing jacket, few quite affordable ones in Decathlon friends have been using for kiting on top of the wetsuit in cold weather. The lighter the better as it will soak some water.

I like the Ion Shelter,since it has a hook and a big hood which can be zipped up to the chin.

Then i got a NP Hoodie with a really big hood. Love it too.
