About Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Hooded Vest

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 an 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.

    Good Hooded Vest

    Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Hooded Vest:

    I am 5'07 with a muscular build and found the fit on the large way too loose and the Med/Large a "better" fit. The chest is a bit loose allowing water to flow in, but since I wore it with a westsuit that was kept to a minimum.

    Overall the hood was easy to don on in the water and the vest was comfortable throughout all the dives which was the important factor. I'm just not sold on the warmth factor as it did warm me up, but not like previous hooded vest that I own (Pinnacle). Overall I would recommend this vest for the casual temperate water. I do have to say that I tend to get colder than others so it may also be a tolerance issue as well.

    • Chest Size:
    • Feels too big
    • Length:
    • Feels too long
    • Was this a gift?:
    • No

    Questions about this item:

    Ben Y  What's the equivalent thickness in neoprene hood, in terms of warmth? Is there a suggested temperature range?
    DEBORAH S  Really terrific hooded vest. My wife bought one, and after seeing hers - I bought one. Fit is excellent - right over the chin, the neck is not restrictive. Mask fits perfectly. I'd consider it almost up to a 5 ml - I wore it in the Socorros and we had a really cool temperature snap - down to the low 70's.
