If I am diving in the summer, I revert to a light weight undergarment. I put the suit on, and I think suspenders are a must. I leave the top down and have my undergarment unzipped. It takes me just a few minutes to zip up my undergarment, slide my wrists in through the wrist seals, slide the top of the suit down over my head, adjust my neck seal, and zipper my shoulder zipper shut. Yes, in the summer, I will be too hot a t that point, so occassionally I jump off the side, and take 1 minute to hose down and cool off without a hood.
I often dive in the summer with no hood at all. With warm feet and body, having a colder head isn't as bad as you would think.
I have a stock size head, so hoods keep my head reasonably warm in the winter.
Layex wrist seals will take quite the abuse from sharp things, it is only when the rubber is rotted do they tear, and we all replace them before it gets to that point many years down the road. Otherwise, I have never torn or punctured a wrist or neck seal on a dive.
Always get attached boots though!
