Comments about Akona 3 mm Quantum Stretch Standard Hood:
The face seam is so loose on this hood it fills with air every time you exhale while facing downward. And there's no valve to let the air escape, so you have to pivot to burp your hood. I had hoped the extra fabric on the neck would give me some protection against chafing from the Velcro tab on my wetsuit, but it doesn't. And the tab has pilled the neoprene so much now it's practically fuzzy back there! I think I'll stick with my beanie, since I'm wearing a hood for protection against fish nibbles, not for warmth.
