Great tropical ocean addition


from Monmouth, OR, US

The quality of Lavacore is incredible. They fit well (tight, but right) and provide just the extra warmth you need.


Just enough!

Excellent product. It provides just enough warmth, without any noticeable bulkiness. Highly recommended !


Lavacore Hooded Vest

By Jason G.

I love my hood vest it’s a great way to layer up light and easy to take off and on. Plus it’s not buoyant.


Hooded Vest

By MikeZ

Used in 68-72 degree water. Did not need a hood with my 7mm wet suit. It was nice when removing the wet suit on the surface in windy conditions.


Good Hooded Vest

By Alex A.

I am 5'07 with a muscular build and found the fit on the large way too loose and the Med/Large a "better" fit. The chest is a bit loose allowing water to flow in, but since I wore it with a westsuit that was kept to a minimum. Overall the hood was easy to don on in the water and the vest was comfortable throughout all the dives which was the important factor. I'm just not sold on the warmth factor as it did warm me up, but not like previous hooded vest that I own (Pinnacle). Overall I would recommend this vest for the casual temperate water. I do have to say that I tend to get colder than others so it may also be a tolerance issue as well.

What's the equivalent thickness in neoprene hood, in terms of warmth? Is there a suggested temperature range?

BEST ANSWER: Really terrific hooded vest. My wife bought one, and after seeing hers - I bought one. Fit is excellent - right over the chin, the neck is not restrictive. Mask fits perfectly. I'd consider it almost up to a 5 ml - I wore it in the Socorros and we had a really cool temperature snap - down to the low 70's.
