The Stainless 37 hat
25 Replies

Just bought the 37 ss hat from divers supply recently.  Definitely the best hat I've ever worn.  Breathes great, feels great, and NO spot rust.  Anybody else have one?  How do you guys feel about it?

"One other note, Zinc is not the proper choice of anode to use with Stainless Steel."

"The spots visible on the earlier SS were not rust. Rust is oxidation, the spots were a biofilm. Ask any marine engineer and they will tell you that SS especially 316L is not recommended for subsea applications especially life support equipment."
