mine has a plastic like coating that does away with the friction.
the downside of it is you have to poke little holes in the

$49 O'Neil made it.
I had a 3mm Body GLove hooded vest that was lined on both sides with nylon. I used that vest for a LONG time before I ever knew enough to buy a good freediving wetsuit.

If I layered it under a 3mm jumpsuit I could even freedive in 40 degree water for periods of time. Since the suit wasn't custom cut, and was lined with nylon on both sides it wasn't the warmest but still did the job for many years.

These nylon lined hooded-vest can be ordered through any dive shop and that alone should make them cheaper than a good freediving hooded vest.

You are all great. :D

Alun gets the Karma! Ted, I'm blocked from giving you karma for a while. Anne Elk (yah!) is correct, and it was Cleese in the wig. Classic.
