    Good bag, drawstring at end not secure

    A bit tight for BCD and fins with the rest of gear, lacks regulator bag, no good way to attach straps to outside, drawstring closure at end not secure (slips), one outside...Read complete review

    A bit tight for BCD and fins with the rest of gear, lacks regulator bag, no good way to attach straps to outside, drawstring closure at end not secure (slips), one outside pocket that is a bit small.
    Backpack straps are nice, but can't trust drawstring to hold stuff in at end of bag -- not the best for boat trips.

      Comments about Akona Deluxe Mesh Backpack (AKB234):

      My dive buddy and I were trying to use the same gear bag to cut down on clutter and it just wasn't working. This Akona bag was the ticket to being able to find my gear in a bag. This thing is huge! Plently of room for fins, mask, reg set, gloves, hood, and wetsuit. Without the wetsuit, I'm able to fit my Scubapro X-Tek FormTek backplate in the bag with all my standard equipment. The exterior pocket is perfect for small lights and sunglasses.

      The construction of the bag seems quite durable and the coated mesh is holding up well to regular use.

        Comments about Akona Deluxe Mesh Backpack (AKB234):

        Great gear bag! My previous bag finally had the shoulder strap rip off after 4 years, so I went with this Akona this time. I used it a couple months ago on a boat dive on the Vandenberg in Key West. The bag held my 5mm wetsuit, boots, fins, mask/snorkel, regulator, a spare regulator, BC, gloves, flashlight, large wreck reel, sweatshirt, and a spare mask with no problem at all. Everything fits in one easy kit to bring onto the boat, and the bag fits easily under the seat when not in use.

          Great for getting all the gear from the hotel room to the boat. Certainly sturdy, comforatable and supportive enough for a 1 mile hike.

            Comments about Akona Deluxe Mesh Backpack (AKB234):

            Not quite big enough to comfortably hold full Scuba gear, 5mm suit, and large'ish Cress Reaction Fins. With some extra care in packing, it could possibly all fit but not big enough to throw and go. I just keep a separate fins/snorkel/boot bag to make it easier. Otherwise, works perfectly for me. Love the backpack feature - seems sturdy and secure.

              When I received this bag I was very impressed with the quality and construction. It's built tough, can take abuse and will last a long time. I highly recommend this bag to transport your diving and snorkel gear.
