Terrific warm layer

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.

from 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.

 

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!

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.

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.

BEST ANSWER: 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.
If I have the size 10 wetsuit should I order the size 10 vest?

BEST ANSWER: 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 ??
Does this help with floatation at all?
A shopper on Jan 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My whole family uses lavacore either alone or under a 3mm shorty for most warm water diving. It allows us to shave a mm or two off of the suits we'd normally have to wear. Because the product is neutral buoyancy it means for a given level of warmth we have less flotation in the suit to offset with weight and less depth compression to deal with. We love it.
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

BEST ANSWER: 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!
