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.
