Rating: Great tech for dedicated purpose
Reviewer: Jason G.
3mm polytherm by lavacore i was shocked to find out how warm this material is. as great as the tech is for keeping heat in, its still a thin suit that will allow heat to be drawn out in colder waters pretty quickly. i would recommend this as either a warm or shallow (>35ft) cold water dive. theres loads of mobility for wreck dives and i hope to test it as a base layer under a glacier this winter...will this review then.

Rating: LavaCore Dive Hood - Excellent
Reviewer: Jeremy O.
This product is great! Fleece dries fast which is great for multiple dives in one day. I used it in 74-75 degree water and it worked great both below the water and helped me keep when I got out of the water. I highly recommend this hood.

Questions and Answers for LavaCore by Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm Hood:


  • Kyle:

    How are hood sizes determined?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Height and weight are the only measurements we have from the manufacturers. As long as the item is not used in the water you have 60 days to refund or exchange it.

  • mikey:

    there is no thickness measurement for this hood. im trying to figure out how warm it will be equivalent to

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Lavacore suits and products are advertised to have an equivalent warmth to a 2mm neoprene wetsuit.

  • John:

    I bought a lavacore hood about a year ago, and it does not have a vent on the top to let air out. I recently bought my wife one, and I noticed that hers has a vent. Is it possible for we to add a vent to my hood - if so how do you recommend to do it?

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Typically a small hole pushed through the top suffices just fine. Be careful not to tear the fabric or cause any sort of snag that might increase in size on it''s own.

Seam Construction

All of the Lavacore seams are overlapped during flatlock sewing to ensure maximum water integrity and reduced waterflow through the seams. Maximum heat retention is therefore achieved when worn in colder water conditions. See diagram. To ensure maximum integrity and longevity of your Lavacore garment the seam cross-overs on the inside of the suit are locked under the threads of the adjoining seam. The seam construction being doubled and flat-locked allows for maximum stretch out of the four way stretch fabric technology without compromising at seam edges.

Panel Design

The Lavacore range includes female and male specific cut and unique design.
Lycra panels with contemporary lines and graphics are incorporated into all garments.
Full Under the Arm Gusset. This ensures there is no rub or irritation on the sensitive under side of the arms and side of the body. It also reduces restricted movement considerably and allows for extra reach without seam strain and damage.
