About Akona Men's 3 mm Shorty

Akona understands the importance of reducing dependence on oil-derived chemicals. Akona's earth-friendly neoprene uses limestone that is over 99.7% calcium and does not rely on oil as extensively as petroleum-based neoprene. Akona wetsuits features a full length molded Delrin zipper and a #10 YKK marine-grade brass slider. This superior combination of zipper and slider is the ultimate in corrosion resistance and strength. The reinforced pull loop at the base of the zipper and pull tab leash makes self-donning of the suit fast and easy. With short sleeves and legs this extremely versatile 3mm nylon 2 neoprene suit offers superb mobility without sacrificing core warmth attributes. This suit utilizes flat-lock stitching throughout.

The glued-and-stitched zipper dam is "skin-out" for added seal and reduced water flushing. The closely guarded, unique lamination process of bonding the nylon to the rubber and Akona's new, strategically designed pattern matched with lightweight, limestone based nylon 2 neoprene is the science behind Akona wetsuits. Akona's wetsuits are the most comfortable and best fitting wet suits in their class. Akona's 3 mm Shorty Suit is available in multiple sizes and is black in color.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Jeffrey L  Diving in the Caribbean for a more comfortable dive.
Stephen T  Am thinking of getting this in 3mm 3XL how many pounds of weight will I need to add?
DOUGLAS I  Depends on a couple things including your breathing and the salinity of the water. All things considered for me, between a rash guard and swim trunks and this it's only like 3-4 pounds.
JOHN K  I like the quality of the suit, but can't answer the question as I never compared weights w/o the suit to with this suit. I would guess 5-6,pounds. I went from a thicker full length suit to the thinner shorty, and it reduced the weight requirement.
LAWRENCE S  Honestly I don't think this wet suit has any affect on what weight you'll need.
