About Akona 5/3 mm Quantum Stretch Hood

Akona's 5/3 mm Quantum Stretch Hood is a warm and comfortable design with a large Bib for double layering on the lower neck and upper chest area. The Hood is 5 mm Nylon II Neoprene and the Bib is Nylon I Skin-In" for reduced flushing and added warmth. The Double Covered Vented Top will allow trapped air to escape; yet will not allow water to enter for better insulation.

The Quantum Super Stretch Neck affords easy donning and doffing while the Skin-In compliments the Skin-In of the Akona Suits virtually eliminating water exchange keeping you warm longer. All seams are Glued and Blind Stitched for added warmth and durability. Hood is covered by Akona's 2 year limited warranty and is available in 7 sizes from X-Small to 3X-Large.

              Comments about Akona 5/3 mm Quantum Stretch Hood:

              I take a 7 3/8 hat size. I figured Large would be good...way too small. Exchanged for an XL 7mm/4mm that has proven perfect. Just dove in a lake that was 42 degrees below the thermocline at 60 ft. Very warm and comfortable. Get the right size and it is worth it.

                    I take a 7 3/8 hat. The large was way too small...I had a squeeze headache in 30 sec. I'll return for an XL

                      I am still getting used to diving with a hood, but this did keep my head warm in a quarry with water temperatures in the mid 50s.

                      • Feels true to size
