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.

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.
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.
