    Waterproof H1 7mm bibless

    Can anyone recommend where to source a Waterproof H1 7mm bibless hood? My current one is about 8 years old and like myself is getting a bit thin up top.

    I would like to replace it before the water cools down.

    My searches keep turning up 5/7mm but I want 7mm or more. Bibless rather than bibbed too.

    Have they stopped making them?

    Thanks. I thought my old one is marked as 7mm but I have just searched my emails for the purchase and it was indeed 5/7. I have gone for a 5/10 now anyway.

    Thanks

    Aye, I've done it anytime I've had one like that. Probably best doing it with a stanley knife, I did it with scissors and it always looks a bit shit. Blob of aquasure if you go across a stitched seam. Never had one come undone but the threads get a bit raggedy.

    Why don't you just spray some expanding foam on your baldy napper? Leave it on for the winter. It's near enough ginger in colour anyway.
