About Lavacore by Oceanic Hood

Lavacore is a technically advanced fabric, constructed and engineered exclusively for water sports requiring the ultimate in thermal control and superior comfort. This unique synthetic construction closely matches the stretch and movement of a traditional Lycia rash vest, while providing the insulation qualities similar to that of a neoprene wetsuit. Close to the skin, Lavacore's soft internal fleece and high 4-way stretch produces the ultimate comfort-warmth-weight ratio, a true leader amongst any fabrics within the water sports industry.

Wet or dry, hot or cold, Lavacore helps control your core temperature longer, whether worn as a standalone garment, or under your wetsuit or clothing.

OUTER Lycia layer is a 6.35 oz/10.8 sq. feet (180g/sq. m) knitted nylon wrap knit Tricot with water repellant treatment to ensure fast water runoff and anti wind chill properties.

INTER layer is an impermeable breathable Micro-porous high stretch Polyurethane (PU) film which is wind proof and breathable allowing perspiration to be drawn away in hot conditions.

INNER Fleece layer is a 8.47 oz/10.8 sq. feet (180g/sq. m) 4 way stretch polyester fleece with elastane. It has Anti Pill treatment, as well as Anti Microbial treatment to reduce odors and eliminate bacteria.

Lavacore is neutrally buoyant so you won't need to add weight to your weight system compromising your weight comfort zone. Full gusset incorporated into the underarms offer exceptional arm movement and stretch and all seams are overlapped during flat-lock sewing to ensure maximum water integrity and strength. Lavacore provides SPF 30+ sun protection and is designed and developed with Oceanic, your guarantee of quality. Hood comes with a 12 month limited warranty.

The Lavacore by Oceanic Hood is commonly used for Recreation and more. One reason why the Lavacore by Oceanic Hood is popular is because of its Good Fit.

      Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Hood:

      I'm NOT a cold water diver so I wanted something to keep me warm in the Cozumel Caribbean in December. This (along with the socks and long sleeve shirt) were perfect. I ordinarily hate the restrictive feeling of a hood. But this was so comfortable (and nice and warm), I truly forgot I had it on while diving. And it was easy to slip the part of the hood that covers my chin down, because I didn't need it.

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            GARY B  Soft, comfortable, & warm
            Glenn P  I'm considering this fantastic hood option. I assume this is the current Lavacore hood manufactured. Why the discrepancy between your listed size chart and Lavacore Internationals? It's got me confused? Keep up the great work. Regards, Glenn
            Joe S  LavaCore is an Oceanic brand. The sizing should be the same, but if you are finding a discrepancy in the size charts, definitely go with the chart from Lavacore.
            Shopper  What is the sizing for this product?
            GARY B  Great fit, soft, comfortable, & warm.
