Terrific warm layer

By LEEANN R.

 -  Plymouth , MN, US

Fit was a bit tricky. The size page link was rather incorrect. The manufacturer size page is accurate. Best to check that before ordering. The vest fit well, doesn’t add bulk, just a nice warming layer. I dived into temps at depth of 75 and this layer was just the addition I needed.

 

Great product, but check sizing.

By PATRICK B.

 -  Sarasota, FL, US

I ordered a size "10" due to my weight and measurements and the product came in US size 6. I found it small but not too small. It might have been better as a US 8. Wore it under a 3mm wet suit and was very comfortable in 85F water.

Lavacore is a technically advanced fabric, constructed and engineered exclusively for water sports requiring the ultimate in thermal control and superior comfort. Thermal and neutral buoyancy properties create the ideal garment - under a neoprene wetsuit for added insulation and warmth or as a stand-alone exposure protection garment. The unique design of Lavacore materials eliminates constriction and allows for extreme movement and flexibility while regulating your core warmth.

Lavacore vests are made with an exclusive Polytherm Tri-Laminate. Ideal for use as a primary exposure vest in warmer waters or as a supplemental undergarment in colder waters. Windproof and breathable providing anti-wind chill properties while also drawing moisture away from the body on the surface, ensuring warmth in cold conditions. For the ultimate in warmth Lavacore's Merino Laminate lined garments are super soft yet durable. Moisture wicking and anti-bacterial, the Merino fleece inner minimizes odor and keeps you warm above and below the surface.

Vest is DWR: Durable Water Repellant has flat seam construction throughout for stretch and comfort. Lavacore is neutrally buoyant so you won't need to add weight to your weight system compromising your weight comfort zone. 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 your guarantee of quality. Women's vest has a waist drawstring closure with barrel lock to prevent suit ride up when layering under exposure suit and is hypoallergenic. Vest is available in multiple sizes.

Great Water Sports Vest

By Yuniel D.

from Virginia Beach, VA, US

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.

 

Really keep me warm @ 16°c!

By happy d.

Exellant outfit with style. I dont mind to purchase more of it's products

 

keeps you warm!

By LINDA H.

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!

 

My daughter loves it

By CK T.

Bought this to use under a wet suit but my daughter has used it alone in early spring to stay warmer in cool gulf waters.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
LOIS S  Want extra warmth under my 3-mil for Caribbean diving.
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.
Patti P  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.
