I recommend 4th Element. Their hoods (and gloves) are very stretchy, which makes the 5 mil feel like most 3 mils and the 7 mil should be like a 5 mil. But they are still very warm. I would say maybe warmer than any other hood or glove I have had of the same thickness. I think this is due to the stretchyness as well, because I can get the right size without it feeling too tight and it conforms to the curves of my face well. Also the whole inside of the hood is skin seal material that helps limit water ingress and movement.
