The extended neck reduces the chance of discomfort from stings, jellyfish and itch, typical in shorter hoods. The seams of the hood are flat-lock stitched for strength, durability and comfort. The hoods edges are taped and sewn adding even more strength, comfort and durability for long life. The Akona 3 mm Quantum Stretch Standard Hood is available in multiple sizes, and is black in color.

Correct Hood


from Las Vegas, NV, US

It would have been nice to get the correct hood. Instead of getting the 3Mil hood, I received a 2.5 Mil. It doesn't seem like much of a difference, but there is!


Thin, stretchy, comfortable and warm


from Scotia, NY, US

I got this because the thick hood I had was tight and uncomfortable. This one is stretchy and thin but still warm. That makes it comfortable for me. If the water is really cold I wear a thin beanie underneath.


Waste of money!


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.

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.
Jay L  Hey Lisa, no the hood doesn't have vent holes, but I made my own. this hood is very comfortable, with no trouble to put on or take off. I hope this helps, Dive safe and have fun.
KAREN R  Yes it does. Kinda funny since when first jumping in there are bubbles coming out at the top of your head : )
MIKE S  There's not a vent in this hood. I haven't had any trouble with this hood holding an air pocket of any kind.
KEVIN S  No. I didn't notice it holding air though. Worked fine.
CID P  Nope. It did fine in Cozumel Kept head warm. Had to squish the water out once I was down at depth.
BRYAN G  No vent on the hood. Its a full enclosed hood.
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.
EDMOND B  i love this hood,it is verry stretchy and not restrictive at all,iit is the most comfortable hood i have ever worn,you can pull it down around your neck,and later pullit backup if you need it..
DOMINICK V  Don't know
DONN E  With a 3mm, it shouldn't be a problem. And if you start to increase the size of the hood after it's worn a few times, it will not provide the protection you want. DE
DAVID O  It is so awesome. The fit is perfect. I'm sorry but I'm not sure if that will do for you.
