    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.

        Comments about Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Vest:

        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 about this item:

            Shopper  Does this help with floatation at all?
            Steve S  No this will not help with flotation. Lavacore is made to be neutrally buoyant. For flotation you will want something that is positively buoyant. You can use a 3mm wetsuit vest which would be positively buoyant.
            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.
            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.
            Shopper  Does this help with floatation at all?
            Steve S  No this will not help with flotation. Lavacore is made to be neutrally buoyant. For flotation you will want something that is positively buoyant. You can use a 3mm wetsuit vest which would be positively buoyant.
