    I am looking for a simi dry suit without an attached hood. I like the extra warmth of the simi dry but I find the attached hood to be a pain. Restricts movement and hard to get on and off. I would also like the option of diving without it all together. I have been searching and cant seem to find one. Does it exist? my Google foo is usually on point but I cant find this.
    I usually dive in Monterey.
    thanks.

    The waterproof combat semi dry doesn't have an attached hood.

    Scubapro and AquaLung have semi-dry suits without attached hoods. Attached hoods are indeed annoying.

    I like the scubapro nova soctia. Now I just need to try it on and see if it'll fit.
    The waterproof combat looks nice but is it worth the 200 price jump?

    For that much money for the waterproof combat, you are getting much closer to the cost of a dry-suit, aren't you?

    From the little bit of shopping I have done for dry suits. It looks like a good Trilam Drysuit is about 1500 to 2000 plus under garments. I'm sure there are some used ones that would be much less. Maybe I'll look at that too.

    If you can afford the few extra $100's in price difference, I'd go for a dry suit for sure. It is 100% worth it. You will extend your dive season in addition to extending your dive time and number of dives you can do in a day all in comfort and warmth.
