    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.

    Questions about this item:

    Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
    WARREN C  To keep the ear plugs in my ears.
    Lisa P  Does this hood have a vent on the top for release of air? Thanks
    Steve S  This does not have vent holes, but you can poke a few holes in it yourself if needed.
    Shopper  I have a 22.5in head (medium) but I have a 17in neck (2XL) do you have any suggestion ?
    Steve S  I would suggest the XL for you as it should fit well. If you need to exchange it for a different size, please call customer service at 800.637.6880 and ask for the PFF Guarantee.
