Rating: Akona Mesh Deluxe Backback
Reviewer: gerald h.,  - View all my reviews
Very well made bag. Like it so much I bought a second. I do wish it had a drain hole on the bottom like my Mares bag but the mesh sides on the Akona go all way to the bottom (the Mares bag mesh sides stop about 2-3 inches from the bottom) so it does drain easily.

Rating: Great bag,
Reviewer: Kevin K.,  - View all my reviews
This bag is very strong. My wife already had one (for several years), and I bought this one for my gear. The only reason for giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the side zipper would be more useful if it opened all the way to the top of the bag. Instead, it stays together at the top, limiting the value of the zipper. Otherwise, its a great product for the price.

Reviewer: Shane F.,  - View all my reviews
this bag is what i really needed! i ride a motorcycle and i can put all my equipment in this with the exception of my tank. it has a side zipper for easy access or i can use the drawstrings from the top. i can wear it on my back or carry it with the the side handle. i love this bag because i can dip the whole thing in the water and it wont retain a ...awesome bag!

Rating: AKONA DIVE GEAR BAG
Reviewer: Dante P.,  - View all my reviews
Best bag out there for the price, fits all my gear for a easy transfer from land to boat. The shoulder straps are comfortable and provide stability when carrying gear on and off boat. The side zip is brillant granting easy access to anything already packed away. Great design, great function and a great value.

Rating: great bag
Reviewer: Robert F.,
This bag is great, replaced the one I used to have (lost in a fire). Big enough for a full set of dive gear, also very durable, I traveled with this several times on airlines and never had any issues, it was pretty much like new until the day I lost it. Highly recommended.

Rating: Works Great
Reviewer: Andrew C.,
Used on a recent dive trip and was able to fit two 3 mil suits, two sets of fins, 2 masks, 2 snorkels, 4 booties, 1 BC and 1 Regulator in the bag. Considering how much weight was in the bag it was surprisingly comfortable. I really have no complaints and will see how it holds up in the long run.

Rating: Nice, roomy dive bag
Reviewer: Mark W.,  - View all my reviews
I purchased 3 of these for each diver in our group for a recent trip to Maui. These bags are great! The opening of this bag is large enough that you can easily slip your BC into it with no effort, and there is plenty of room to store my dive gear (3mm wet suit, regulator, fins, mask, snorkel, booties), in addition to my underwater camera, towel and a water bottle. The side pouch is large enough to store all of my dive tools and spare parts. Its very rugged, and it has nice padded shoulder pads for packing all of this stuff from our car (which was usually several blocks away) to the boat. I really like this bag!

Rating: Best Value Boat Bag
Reviewer: William Gibbons,
Bag appears to be very well made of tough materials. Has two zippered compartments with one for small items and what appears to be a dry area for keeping clothing out of the way. Bag is accessible either through the top (drawstring) or from the side with a large zipper which should make it easier to grab and locate items without pawing through the whole bag. Overall it appears to be a winner and Im looking forward to the summer diving season to put it through its paces and see how well it holds up. Jack G

Rating: So far, so good
Reviewer: Jill Grogan,
Ive only used this bag on one dive trip to Hawaii, but so far it seems great. The only problem is that because it holds so much, I end up carrying most of the gear for the whole family.

Rating: AKONA DELUXE MESH BACKPACK
Reviewer: Geoffrey Rand,  - View all my reviews
Extremely well built backpack. Cinch cord, grommets, zippers, handles, straps, and mesh all seem overbuilt and look like theyll last as long as the gear that you haul in it. The outside pocket is large enough to hold a reg, however, I use mine to hold my spare parts kit along with sun block, hat, sunglasses, etc. Theres a lot of room in there. The water resistant inside pocket runs the length of the bag and will hold a towel or similar sized items. The bag will easily hold two sets of personal gear (mask, snorkel, fins) with room to spare, or can fit one complete set of diving gear. Much better quality and much cheaper price than a similar mesh backpack sold at my local dive shop.
