Great Water Sports Vest

This is a great vest for any water sport activity. My daughter uses it as added warmth when doing warm water dives. She has also used it as an undergarment with dry/wetsuits when doing cold water dives. Very stylish vest.

keeps you warm!

I wore this vest under a 3 ml Henderson wetsuit (with a hood and gloves) in water of 72 degrees. I felt a little cold at first but then was fine for the rest of the dives. The vest really helped! It is fleece lined and wouldn't fit comfortably under my 5 ml wetsuit since that wetsuit is very tight but worked out very well under my 3 ml! I am really happy with it!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Karyn K  If I have the size 10 wetsuit should I order the size 10 vest?
STEPHEN B  Yes. I always get the same size as the lacacore jumpsuit, it works for entire family for the entire family
TRACY K  I would call LeisurePro and see if they have a suggestion. I find there is little consistency in wet suit sizing. I bought mine large to wear over my suit because there was no way I was fitting anything under it. If you definitely want to wear under you could start with the 10, or order a couple sizes and return the one you don't want.
PATRICIA J  I would go by the sizing chart that Henderson has for Lavacore. You should see the link on the page that you choose your size and item.
LESLEY H  Lavacore vests aren't quite as stretchy as neoprene wetsuits, but if you are already familiar with the brand and sizing, as long as your wetsuit fits comfortably around your breasts then it should be the same size! Hope this helps ??
CARLETON L  I would perhaps go up a size. My wife wears a size 10 wetsuit (Henderson 3mm) but uses a medium Lavacore vest which I think corresponds to size 12. She has been diving with that combination for 4 years now and loves it.
Shopper  Hi, I need this for swimming in a chilly pool, but I'm not sure what size to get. My measurements don't go with the size chart. Weight 127 lb., height 5'4", bust 36, waist 36, hips 44. Is the bust molded like sharkskins or is it more like a tank top design? Should I go with measurements for waist or hips? Don't like tight clothes, but understand it can't be too loose to do its job and keep me warm. Will probably wear it under a finis thermal swim shirt. This is a good choice to keep me warm while doing laps, right? Thanks
michele B  Hello..second try here! The vest has a higher neck..not like a tank top. The bust is molded but softly molded..not molded very much. very comfortable..don't know what sharkskins are. The vest is not very long..so I would go with the waist measurement unless you are very high waisted..you might want to consider that the hips could cause the bottom of a longer vest to ride up. I thought the vest ran small.. I i wear a 10-12 and ordered an xl. It seemed small. Yes ..you want it be quite snug (fitted). I use vests for scuba diving under my wetsuit. It really helps. You won't notice the snugness when wet. The one thing I did not like it that the neck was a bit gappy. Maybe it was the particular one I got..or my posture..not sure. Hope this helped..good luck!
TODD R  My wife wears this. She is 5'4", weighs 134 lbs. and has it in size 12. Her measurements are similar to yours. It fits snug, but not tight. It is a bit of a struggle to get into it, but easier to get off when it's wet. Very warm, easy to move in, she wears it under a wetsuit in colder water. (bust does have molded shape)
NICHOLAS D  Hard for me to answer your question since I am a male and use it for diving under a thin wet suit. However, I have found it to be effective extra thermal barrier and they tend to come through a bit larger than advertised. They do stretch so body shape can be accommodated. Hope this is of some help.
LAURIE C  I ordered this in my normal shirt size (12) and it was way, way too small. Almost impossible to get on. I returned it and ordered the Neosport Xspan 2.5 mm Women's Sport Vest, Black/Blue SKU: NSPX2VW size 12 and it was perfect. It helps to have the zipper in the front.
Lisa T  Does this vest really not ride up as advertised? I am a lap swimmer looking for extra warmth in the pool. Have another vest that rides up. Very annoying.
Joe S  it is designed long so it will reduce the lifting of the vest while moving. Many people use it for swimming and have found it to be comfortable and stays in place.
NICHOLAS D  I used this vest for 50 dives under a skin. It doesn't move. The vest has a cord around the bottom edge which can be pulled quite tight if you desire extra holding power.
KIM B  I bought this vest to help keep me warm while snorkelling. It helped quite a bit and I did not find that it rode up. It has a drawstring elastic that helps keep the heat in and the vest in place.
JOHN D  I've used this vest for paddling on SUPs, OC and dragon boats for last two years in SF Bay wind and fog. Still holding as my extra layer. Diane
Chrissy K  I wear this vest while scuba diving and as such have a bcd on over top of it. But it is quite snug and very comfortable. It is also a longer vest which may help to keep it in place. I can't say if it will stay in place while swimming, but I am very happy with it both wearing alone and as a second layer underneath a full sized wetsuit.
CINDI L  I only wear it under a wetsuit so it stays in place
