Is this a true skin in (looks like it on their website, but want to confirm)?

Does Aquaflite make a one-piece w/ hood or is it Farmer John style?

I'd agree that the full skin in should offer superior sealing (one of the Picasso pluses). I've been happy with a Henderson gold hood I bought on clearance a few years ago - is the Oceanliner material similar?

I'm not sold on the really stretchy materials - they don't handle the abuse of beach diving. How's the Aquaflite external material for abuse?
