About Lavacore by Oceanic Men's 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 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.

Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Vest:

This is a great vest if you are performing any water sports in 70 degree or warmer water. Otherwise it is the perfect device to use as a warmer undergarment with your dry/wetsuit. I used it several times in February and March this year as an undergarment to my Aqualung, 8MM, one piece Semidry suit, to dive in 45F – 46F degree water and my body was nice and warm during the entire time I was underwater. I plan to use it again over my skin suit next month in the Caribbean for added protection in 90+ feet dives.
I found the waist elastic cord to get in my way more often than I was getting to require it, so I simply removed it. Other than that, this is a very nice, warm, comfortable vest that not only keeps you comfy, but in style as well. If you are like me that doesn't like to expose unnecessary skin, this is the perfect device to wear.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Michael O  Hate neoprene. Love Lavacore!!
THOMAS R  how thick is this vest? Is it 2 mill or 3 mil
JORDAN G  It feels like about 2mil thickness. The material is not neoprene - it is a kind of fleece material inside with nylon/polyester outside - very similar to the 4th Element Thermocline. To me it feels just slightly heavier and denser than the Thermocline, though, but about the same thickness. Both this and the Thermocline insulate like about a 2.5 mil wetsuit in my experience.
