About Lavacore by Oceanic Women's Full Suit

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 suit, 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 50+ sun protection and is designed and developed with Oceanic, your guarantee of quality. Women's Full Suit has a front zipper closure, thumb loops and stirrups to prevent suit ride up when layering under exposure suit and is hypoallergenic.

a wetsuit for those who hate wetsuits

I hate wetsuits. And I hate being cold. Quite the connundrum. I hate putting then on, I hate pulling them off, I hate that feeling when you get a gush of cold water in your suit, I hate the smell of neoprene, I hate the velcro catching my hair, I hate back zips... My least favorite part about suiting up for a dive -- the wetsuit. The lavacore takes away ALL of these unpleasantries. You feel like you are putting on your favorite fleece. It's light weight and easy to put on (no matter the con...

If it fit, I think it would have worked

I read the reviews so order a size larger than what I typically wear in clothing, it was too small. I returned the item & got another brand wetsuit which worked fine.

A must have for women who dive


from Wilmington, NC, US

Love my new Lava Core! I had one before this one and word it diving all the time. When the water is chilly I wear it under my wet suit. In the summer I wear just it for protection because I do a lot of wreck diving. However, it protects you from jelly fish stings as well! My old one has been great but a litter faded after 5 years so I will keep it as a backup.




from Los Angeles, CA, US

It's sold as the equivalent of a 2mm. I love it. As does everyone I know that has one. It is neutral. Doesn't affect buoyancy. I add it to my 3mm and my 5mm. Makes them a 5mm and a 7mm in theory. Easy to get wet suits on and off over them too. Good luck. Very comfortable too.




from Ashland, OR, US

Lavacore is a great item for keeping me warm. I've been using this item for years, and it stands as one of the better quality items I've ever seen.


I Love it!


from Lexington, VA, US

Great suit. Can be used under your normal wetsuit for extra warmth or as a thin suit in warmer water. I use it in combination with a 5mm shortie and it's great. Its so comfortable. I love the front zip which makes it easy to get into.


Comfy and warm

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Richard L  Great product
Linda M  I am allergic to neoprene and am hoping this suit will help.
LESLIE M  To be warm while swimming in outdoor pools in winter ... it never fit right: too long in torso, too short in legs, with a big pouch in the front for equipment we women don't possess!
LESLIE M  I wanted to be warm when I swim in winter in outdoor pools.
Laurie F  Is this a 3mm suit? I don't see a thickness.
Nili H  It's sold as the equivalent of a 2mm. I love it. As does everyone I know that has one. It is neutral. Doesn't affect buoyancy. I add it to my 3mm and my 5mm. Makes them a 5mm and a 7mm in theory. Easy to get wet suits on and off over them too. Good luck.
ANNE S  No, it is not neoprene and doesn't count a 3mm suit. However, with it's polarfleece lined inside, it is as warm as a 3mm.
Shopper  Has anyone layered the Lavacore hooded vest under a Lavacore full suit?
Joe S  you can layer lavacore for extra warmth, but dot expect to get the same thermal protection as the first layer. It works by trapping extra water in the material and allowing less water exchange from between your body and suit. It does not insulate like neoprene does so layering it does not have an equal affect.
MICHAEL S  No but I'm sure it would work fine.
