Datex is a dual layer material, consisting out of a supporting layer of stretchy polyester / elastan with a top layer of 100% chlorined natural latex. It has the looks of rubber, but can be stitched and isn’t as vulnerable as rubber.
Another advantage is that you can be easily put on, without the aid of talcum powder or silicones. Since it slides much easier over the skin, it’s a good material to make hoods from.
Mister B’s nice and tight fitting premium grade Datex Hoods will give you a wonderful confined feeling; your head is comfortably encased in this slick and smooth black material, without being so heavy and extreme as heavy rubber or leather hoods are.
Because the material is very stretchy, one size fits all.
Can be machine washed at low temperature.
