California residents please click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Proposition 65

Safe Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 – Warnings Required

WARNING: This Dive Right In Scuba product can expose you to cretin chemicals which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov



We appreciate your decision to purchase Dive Right In Scuba products to provide the best in water experience. We take our job seriously! You may have noticed that our products now show a warning label at point of sale referring to carcinogens and birth defects. You may also have begun to see warnings related to carcinogenic substances or substances causing birth defects prominently displayed in hotel lobbies, hospitals, or other places of business recently. These warnings are required by the State of California, and we believe that an explanation of the California statute legislating the requirement will provide you valuable information regarding the relative risks of the chemicals that may be present in consumer products.

In 1986, the State of California passed the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act; otherwise known as “Proposition 65” or "Prop 65". Prop 65 requires businesses like ours to disclose to individuals the presence of chemicals listed in the Act prior to point of sale. The regulations implementing this Act have been amended over time with the most recent updates will take effect on August 30, 2018. There are more than 900 chemicals on the Prop 65 Chemical List, including many chemicals that are found in components of a wide array of consumer goods or are used to manufacture components that make up consumer goods.

Prop 65 does not establish acceptable concentrations for any listed chemical; however, the agency which enforces it has established what is called "safe harbor" exposure levels for about one third of these chemicals below which warnings are not required. These "safe harbor" are established for listed carcinogens based on the quantity of the chemical that would result in one excess case of cancer in an exposed population of 100,000, assuming lifetime (70-year) exposure at the level in question. A similar process is used to establish safe harbor levels for listed reproductive toxicants. Additional information in plain language on safe harbor levels is available from the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment at http://oehha.ca.gov/Prop65/background/p65plain.html

At Dive Right In Scuba, the safety of your in water experience is our highest priority. We go to great effort to select materials that offer superior value, quality, and durability while also being generally recognized as safe and reliable for the full life of the product. Dive Right In Scuba also works closely with many regulatory bodies, such as the US Coast Guard and Underwriter’s Laboratories, to ensure the longevity of your on-water safety through targeted selection of durable, long lasting materials and components that undergo significant validation testing before being used to manufacture end items. Sometimes the safety promise we offer appears at odds with the health and safety requirements of other legislation in certain parts of the world when some regulations are updated ahead of others. To ensure compliance with applicable legal requirements, Dive Right In Scuba has placed a warning on products that contain a Prop 65 listed chemical, either directly or as a part of the raw material supply chain. This allows us to comply with California law and provide our California consumers with the disclosure required by Prop 65, while still promising the safest on water experience possible.

Dive Right In Scuba is working diligently with regulatory bodies and our own manufacturing partners to continue to improve our product performance and reduce the presence of less desirable chemicals. Water is a precious resource we all share that is important to the health and well-being of our planet and all people. Our goal is to continue to enhance your water life experience while reducing our overall impact to the planet and, in particular, its waterways. While it is a bit of a juggling act to achieve, we are confident you will see continued improvement in both the immediate and long term future. We hope this explanation will enable you to understand why you will be seeing warnings on some our products.

Thank you for your continued use of Dive Right In Scuba products.

  1. Good hood, but chafes my neck review by Daniel on 5/30/2019
    Overall Rating

    - It keeps me plenty warm in 50F water.
    - It's easy to put on and take off, which I prefer over my previous hood.
    - Fitment isn't what you might expect; apply a tapemeasure to your head and check the size chart. I did, and it fits perfectly.

    The one downside: the seam on the inside of the neck chafes against my throat. After two dives, I literally had a bloody line on my neck, like someone had tried to garrote me. The hood is otherwise excellent, so I hate to complain, but I've got to figure out how to keep it from scraping me bloody every time.

  2. Very well made but runs small review by Gary on 2/26/2019
    Overall Rating

    Very well made but runs small. Order1-2 sizes up

    Also this is without a skirt at the bottom so better suited for a dry suit then wet

  3. Excellent Hood review by Chris on 3/7/2016
    Overall Rating

    As a public safety diver I bought one for my work rig. I liked it so much I'm buying a second for me personal setup. Very warm and easy to take on and off. Overall it's a very good value.

  4. Fourth Element 7mm Hood. review by Glenn on 4/12/2015
    Overall Rating

    Amazing warmth for cold water. Fits great and true to size. Fourth Element is top of the line gear.

  5. Great hood but small neck review by Gary on 3/8/2014
    Overall Rating

    4th element really made a great hood but the neck could be a little larger. The hood it self is great!

  6. Very good review by Admir on 12/30/2013
    Overall Rating

    This was extremely tight on my face and would prevent me from opening my mouth. I think if you buy a size larger than what you think you wear, then it should not be a problem.

  7. review by Dan Kelly on 6/29/2013
    Overall Rating

    Great hood, but in my experience you should buy one size larger than you think you need. DRIS was awesome in handling the exchange that I requested to go up to the next size. I dive Waterproof hoods primarily and this one is right there with them in quality.

  8. review by Al Pineda on 6/19/2013
    Overall Rating

    about half of our divers like these hoods and they work well with full face masks. we are a fairly large commercial diving operation so if the product works here i think it is a good product

  9. review by Steven Aaen on 6/14/2013
    Overall Rating

    This is quite possibly the best fitting/warmest hood I have worn to date. I regularly dive this hood in temperatures down to 35-45 degrees and I have never once felt chilled. I've tried the waterproofs, and they are warm, but did not enjoy the excessive neoprene around my head, limiting hearing, and just not feeling comfortable.

    I highly recommend these hoods.

  10. review by Pierre Donvez on 5/17/2013
    Overall Rating

    This is quite simply the best hood you could buy!! Amazing warmth for it's thickness, fits very snug and more importantly: air doesn't get trapped inside which I hated about my scuba pro 6.5mm hood with which my head looked like an egg when it had air trapped inside which is why I bought this 4th element one.
    One think to note is that the sizes are relatively "small", I have a very small head, normally wear kid sized motorbike helments and had to go with an L sized hood!! Check the sizing, take some measures on your head and you'll be fine.

    One small complaint about this hood tho: I have a very long neck and find this hood is a bit too short, I have to check sometimes that I don't get a gap between my wetsuit and the hood.

    To conclude, if you're looking for a hood look no further, and DRIS has a great service and a great price

  11. review by M. Celia Evesque on 2/10/2013
    Overall Rating

    The hood is simply fabulous! It has a smooth "skin" inside that keeps water from flowing through quite nicely. Simply loved it.

    My only qualm is that the models fro the hood measurements must have been pinheads with no necks. I used the sizing chart and ordered a Medium 5mm; it was simply too snug and my carotids were definitely compressed. I went ahead and ordered another one, this time Large 5mm and can definitely say I liked it and so did the circulation to my head. Dove it today with a drysuit in North Florida spring water (typically 68-72F) and this hood was perfect.

    I would order next size up on these hoods. (BTW, same thing happened when I ordered their Xerotherm drysuit undees...next size up was the best fit.)

    Shipping was fast, after sorting out my non-standard street address...(thank you Debra!)

  12. review by Douglas Boyce on 8/31/2012
    Overall Rating

    As with other 4th Element creations, this is a well-designed and well-made product. It runs true to size, although their designs seem to be made to fit snugly, which minimizes water exchange to optimize heat retention. I’d buy it again.

  13. review by Woon Pin Chua on 4/10/2012
    Overall Rating

    I used the 3mm hood in water that was about 18 degrees Celsius (64 F) and it worked as advertised. It kept me warm for the 3 dives I did for the day. Fourth Element makes great exposure protection and you wouldn't go wrong with them!

  14. review by Edmund Grant on 2/17/2010
    Overall Rating

    Great fitting hood which is very versatile that can be used with my drysuit. Excellent quality, another thumbs up for Fourth Element.

How does it work?
Well, once we are able to verify the competitors lower price, we will approve the pricematch.  This will send you an email, and the price will automatically change for you to purchase at the new low price.
