Questions and Answers for LavaCore by Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm Hooded Dive Vest:


  • Steve:

    I want to get a hooded vest and was thinking of a Lavacore but now I see that there are several to choose from. I would where this under a wet suit some of the time. What do you suggest?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Lavacore is a great product and is as warm as a 2mm material. A 3mm hooded vest would be warmer but add more buoyancy.

  • Anna:

    Do you have to wear a neoprene hood over the LavaCore hood for diving in San Diego? Also, can the LavaCore vest be altered if one were to lose weight? Thanks!

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    A hood over this in colder water would make sense and can be altered with standard sewing tools.

Specifically designed to add an additional warming layer on the torso, head protection and crease comfort when worn under a traditional neoprene wetsuit.

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.
