Comments about Akona 5/3 mm Quantum Stretch Zipper Hood:
I wanted a very stretchy hood for moderately cold water. The Leisure Pro online help person recommended this hood so I bought it. By the size chart I should require a large size but the Leisure Pro person recommended a 2XL to get as much room around my neck as possible. I could barely get it over my head, and, once on, it felt like it had my face in a vice. I did not notice that it was any more flexible than any of my other hoods. Very uncomfortable.
I called back to find if getting it wet to determine if it stretched would hamper sending it back. The answer was "yes," so I mailed it right back.
Frankly, I don't recommend buying low cost items like this from Leisure Pro, or anyone else, if there is a possibility they might not fit or otherwise be satisfactory. It cost me 25% of the purchase price to send this back to get a credit.
