About Akona Skin Suit (AKSS156)

The AKONA Skin Suit provides maximum comfort for tropical environments. Ten ounce (283.5 g) Polypropylene, soft brushed lining and flat-lock stitched construction form a comfortable fit to use alone or as layering garment.

The non-buoyant material allows you to maintain your current dive weight requirements. Suit is all black with silver stitching. When worn alone the Skin Suit provides sun protection.

      Comments about Akona Skin Suit (AKSS156):

      Great dive skin. Provides sun protection, keeps you warm in tropical waters, adds warmth under wet suits, makes it easier to don a wet suit over the skin, and protects against stings from coral and jellyfish. My first finally wore out after about 250 dives so I ordered a new one. It broke at the lanyard connection to the zipper and Leisure Pro replaced it with a new one. Quality still seems as good as my first one and service is great.

        I really like the comfort of this skin. I purchased to wear under my 3/2 suit for extra warmth, but haven't been able to dive in it yet. Easy to put on and really helps get my wetsuit on.

          I intend to use this only as a skin, but it would also work great by itself in warm water (>85F).
