Hypothermia vs Hoods.
The body reacts to cold and heat by adjusting the blood stream to different parts of the body, like hands, fingers and feet. But the body can not adjust the blood stream to your head. This to ensure the brains function during all conditions. That is why the colder it gets, the more heat you loose from the head by radiation, or even worse, by conduction in the water. You keep warmer with an effective hood.
