    Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Short Sleeve Shirt:

    This stuff is great for cold water. I wore the short sleeve short for a quarry dive last week. Under a 7 mil wetsuit it was great. Bottom temp at 60 feet was 46 degrees. It does a terrific job. (Just order it a little big. The sizes run small.)

    Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Short Sleeve Shirt:

    You pretty much pay for its superb quality. It was well worth it! I have received compliments on this rash guard. The (SPF) for this rash guard worked what it claims! Be sure to apply sun block on areas that this rash guard does not cover.

    Few things to consider before purchasing it:
    Get 1 size up since it runs small on the neck, chest, abs and sleeves. If you wear an L then get XL. I wear an XXL. I ordered XXXL. The overall fits feels great at one size up. Or you will not be happy on how tight it feels.

    It feels like 3mm thick compared to the 3mm shortie wetsuit. It has inner micro-fleece lining that feels soft to touch. Just make sure you hang dry inside out after you take it off allowing the inner fleece to dry and preventing odor to build up. To date, I have not had any issue with odors.

    I wore this rash guard for snorkeling out in the western Caribbean during the week of July 13th to 26th, 2013. It was comfortable as it kept me warm in the water. The water does not creep into it much. I would not advise you wearing this rash guard under the direct sun for a really long time as it gets really warm. Be sure to go under a shade and/or splash water on your guard to keep cool. It is breathable!

    I think you will be content wearing this rash guard!

    Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Short Sleeve Shirt:

    This product is really great to wear under a wet suit to add another layer of thermal protection. But ... it runs REALLY SMALL, especially under the arms. I usually wear medium size products, and my buddy is usually good with medium/large. For this, I had to go with large, and my buddy with XL.

    Diving yes, kayaking no

        Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Short Sleeve Shirt:

        I bought this short sleeve shirt to use while using my kayak in cold water. I tried the medium large and large. They both would have been great for diving (that's why the 5 stars) but were too restrictive for kayaking. I even ordered the X Large but it was also too restrictive for paddling even though there were folds in the material as it was too large.

        Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

        Questions about this item:

        Larry C  What is the total weight of this suit? Can just the shirt be bought?
        Steve S  This is a fairly light shirt and this is just the shirt.
        Steve K  How warm, or how much warmer is it in a wet suit with this on in addition?
        PETER J  Steve K, I have not worn the Lavacore under a wetsuit. A friend recommended the suit and he wore it, in lieu of as we were diving in the BVIs. I do believe it would add more warmth though.
        Steve H  What size chest does the medium fit? thanks
        GARY J  You would buy a Medium, if you had a chest size of 38 to 42 (according to the sizing chart). I have a chest size of 48, which is at the top end of the XL - so I purchased the XXL. It fits well for my intended use. If I was planning on using it as a core warmer, I would have tried the XL.
