Reviewer: Kevin M.The perfect gift for your snorkeling buddies. - i like to snorkel off the nj coast, and im getting pretty good at grabbing crabs for dinner. now and then i get pinched by the bigger crabs, so i bought this set of 1mm gloves to even the odds. they also came in handy when a swimming partner ped his wedding ring in barnegat bay and i scooped through endless much to find it. too many jerks tossing litter overboard means you run a risk of cuts and infection, so having a set of gloves can come in real handy (no pun intended).
Reviewer: RON H.Ocean Quest 6oz Premium Lycra Fin Dive Socks Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - lycra fin dive socks do stretchbut not enough for a size 11 1/2 or size 12" footand, they are truly light-weight. so, order the 13-15, and i think youll be pleased with your purchase. ron
Reviewer: Richard S.SharkSkin Performance Trilaminate Micro Fleece Mens Shorts Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I use these shorts instead of a swim suit under my wet suit. Makes my snug wet suit easier to put on. One caution: By the manufacturers sizing chart, I should wear a Small. I had to exchange for a Large.
Reviewer: Alex O.Hooded is the way to go! - The integrated hood on this polytherm is excellent for moderate temperature diving along with a 3 mil suit. I used it during a week long diving trip where this time of year I usually use a 5 mil suit. Fit great under my 3 mil and was excellent because it does not add any additional bounce. Used it with my 3 mil and it kept me perfectly warm. I am not a big fan of stand-alone hoods, this was so much easier to get on and off.
Reviewer: Mary McCombieFeels great, runs small - truly warm and really cuts down the water exchange around the neck when worn under your wetsuit. however, the vest runs smalli had to order a full size up, and it was still tight, though appropriately so. perhaps its because the material does not stretch much. but i like the warmth and comfort, not to mention that it does not add any buoyancy to my suit.
Reviewer: Ronald S.Nice gloves - Arrived in a timely fashion. Looked good. Just a little small
Reviewer: Jason G.Great tech for dedicated purpose - 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.
Reviewer: Jeffrey G.polyfin hot socks - These socks worked well in warm water as protection against irritation from full foot fins. I suspect they will provide significant additional warmth with booties in a cold-water environment and have heard this is the case from a friend who uses them.
Reviewer: betty mounceLavaCore by Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm Long Sleeve Dive Rash Guard Review - $109.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - My husband bought this product for when he goes personal watercraft riding. He says the long sleeve guard keeps him warm and dry. You would have to buy this product a size or two then what you normal size would be.
Reviewer: sonja j.Henderson 1.5mm Microprene 2 Dive Skin Wetsuit Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Took to Belize in March. Felt like a second skin - never felt constrained or had to struggle out of it. Great buy!
Reviewer: Paul M.Nice Warmth with Neutral Buoyancy - Wore my new LavaCore dive vest for some recent deeper dives. Being a vest style, it was fairly easy to put on. It fit just fine under my 5-mil wetsuit without bunching or adding bulkiness. During the dive, I could tell a nice difference in warmth as the vest helped keep my core warmed. I had made 10 dives in the 3 days prior to this, so had a basis for comparison to tell that the vest was doing its job. Also, during the surface interval and on the 45-minute trip back to the dock, the vest kept me warmer. Especially for quick, easy-to-put-on core warmth, this LavaCore vest was a great option.
Reviewer: James FinniganIsland Boy - These are nice dive socks. I use them with oversized fins all the time while snorkeling (or long distance swimming with fins ). They are very comfortable and work well in warm climate waters, not to heavy, and not to warm on the feet. They are great protection for water entries that have lots of gravel or coral at the shore line. I got a piece of coral in my foot, which wasnt fun. With these socks your feet are very protected from ocean shore-line obstacles. Pick a few pairs up, in case you lose one ( like I have done )and then take them to a beautiful tropical island and have a wonderful time. Smile.
