Rating: Capping it off
Reviewer: Christopher K.  -  View all my reviews
i am replacing my beanie i enjoyed for many years of diving in st. croix and grand cayman. my beanie was lost when put into a bcd pocket that wasnt secured. alas. the cap was very helpful for my second, third, and fourth dives of the day when core temps had ped. i am easily chilled and the extra retention on the top was always appreciated.

Rating: Love this beanie!
Reviewer: Laura W.  -  View all my reviews
I dont really like the restriction of wearing a full hood, so this beanie was the perfect solution for me!

Rating: Not snug enough
Reviewer: Tracie Moore
This beanie was o.k. but the fit was not great. I ended up wearing my husbands most the time during 10 days on a Costa Rica Cocos Island live aboard.

Rating: Extra warmth
Reviewer: Larry Douglas  -  View all my reviews
Adds comfort and warmth when you dont want to go to the trouble of a full hood, and on the surface you can unstrap ,flip up the sides to hear better.

Questions and Answers for Akona 2mm Diving Beanie:

  • Dennis:

    Is this beanie suitable for open water swimming? Or are there different styles for that? Thnks

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Dennis, yes you can use this in open water as a hood. I would only suggest using this in water above 75 degree water since this is only a 2mm beanie. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    It would work for swimming. It won''t be water resistant like a swim cap, but will offer some thermal protection for the user.
