        Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Vest:

        Use under a 3mm wetsuit. Definitely warmer. Neutral buoyancy a plus. I get cold easy and this is much better than getting a thicker wetsuit. Will buy more items from Lavacore. Not cheap, but worth the money.

        Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Vest:

        I have recently began playing water volleyball. I needed something to keep me warm on those cool winter days. Another thing is the fit. For a 3X (280 lbs.) It fits beautifully. A half zipper from either armpit would help taking it off.

          Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Men's Vest:

          I tried this out under my wetsuit for the first time this weekend and what a difference it made.
          My chest and back stayed comfortably warm in 55F water for 2 hours. I will use it all through the winter. I plan to try a full suit to go under my regular wetsuit.I love the fact that it is a long vest. I was able to tuck it into my shorts to prevent it from riding up when I pulled up my wetsuit.
          It does seem like it will take a while to dry out after washing but no big deal.

            It feels like at least 3mm added to your wetsuit but it doesn't affect your buoyancy. Really neat stuff. It takes a bit longer to dry than I expected, but still within reasonable time.

            Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
            Michael O  Hate neoprene. Love Lavacore!!
            Shopper  If the size chart places you between a Large and Extra Large, would you choose a snug fit or a looser one? Mike L.
            Joyce Pellerano L  Thanks, Max...I'll go for the Extra Large, then...
            rich b  is this vest bouyant?
            MAX W  This vest is neutrally buoyant. Additionally, in terms of warmth, it adds the equivalence of 2-3mm neoprene.
