The outer neck area is skin seal that complements the skin in seal on AKONA wetsuits further reducing water exchange and enhancing warmth.

Comments about Akona 5/3 mm Standard Vented Bib Hood (AKH208):

Bought this hood about a month ago for quarry diving. After 6 dives, (6actual dives, not 6 days of diving) it already has a hole in the seam around the neck where band/seal is.
Pretty unhappy about it.

Otherwise, it serves purpose. Keeps head warm, fits well.

Comments about Akona 5/3 mm Standard Vented Bib Hood (AKH208):

This is a good quality product. I am a large person (4XL wetsuit) and most hoods are tight around the neck. The fit around the head on this one was a bit snug, but there was lots of room around the neck.
