Akona 7mm Quantum Stretch Wetsuit
The Akona Quantum Stretch Wetsuit 7mm utilizes a nylon weave combined with the super lightweight neoprene rubber which allows the Quantum Stretch suits extraordinary flexibility and stretch capabilities.
Standard neoprene wetsuits stretch one way but not the other. This is a limitation of the laminated nylon material necessary to construct a durable wetsuit. Through years of research and engineering, the Akona neoprene experts have developed a four-way stretch nylon weave capable of withstanding the harsh elements of diving.
The closely guarded, unique lamination process and a strategically designed pattern matched with lightweight, limestone based neoprene is the science behind AKONA Quantum Stretch wetsuits. The most comfortable and best fitting wetsuits in their class.
Saltwater resistant zipper
Cold Water Suit
Flush-cut, glide skin seals
ZIPPER: YKK #10 brass zipper. Our unique zipper design utilizes dual rubber strips to additionally seal the zipper opening when closed, creating a water resistant closure. In addition, our low profile zipper flap folds over a closed zipper to further seal and secure the zipper in its closed position. The reinforced pull loop at the base of the zipper makes self-donning of the suit fast and easy.
GLIDESKIN: The new AKONA glide-skin neck, wrist and ankle seals minimize water entry and flushing of the suit. The neck, wrists and ankles of these AKONA wetsuits are flush-cut for this purpose. The extremely slick surface and flexible properties of the glide-skin material enable the wearer to enter and exit the suit with ease.
KNEE PADS: Our uniquely designed and stylistic knee pads provide exceptional grip and durability. Unlike the stiff rubber knee pads utilized on other suits today, our revolutionary AKONA knee pad material is fully flexible, and has a hydrodynamic low profile.
SHOULDERS: Our AKONA Grab Shoulder material provides superior wear and scuff protection. Designed to grip a buoyancy compensator to reduce shifting, the Grab Shoulders create a snug and movement-free fit. The unique pattern of the Grab Shoulder material also prevents excessive stretching of the suit when hung to dry.
