Once you have the Otter Hood you can equip it by pressing up on the D-Pad then X on the Otter Hood in the radial menu. The Otter Hood will replace the hood on your suit. With the Otter Hood equipped you take on the characteristics of an Otter, becoming better at swimming. What this means is when you fall into water you will swim left or right better than you would without the hood equipped. It also seems like you float better as well.
