Reviewer: Larry C. S. on 11/10/2008Comparison of Deep See 2mm Barnacle gloves & XS Scuba Kevlar Bug Grabber 2mm Gloves - I am a volunteer diver at a local zoo as well as a recreational diver. I help to clean/scrub a 100,000 gal. reef tank. I have to hold onto an artificial reef with one hand while I scrub/clean with the other. Last year after wearing out a pair of reef gloves in a short period of time, I decided to do a head to head comparison of two different gloves. I alternated using of Deep See 2mm Barnacle gloves and XS Scuba Kevlar Bug Grabber 2mm gloves. In my opinion, I thought that the Barnacle gloves would outlast the Bug Grabber gloves. I liked the tactile sensation of Barnacle gloves a little better than the Bug Grabber gloves. However, the Barnacle gloves did not hold up as well. ...View Full Review
Reviewer: Kevin M. on 8/11/2008The 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: Karen Crabb on 11/25/2014LavaCore by Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm Hood Review - $24.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - This hood is perfect alone for warm water diving and its a snug fit under my 7\4 hood for added warmth. I bought this hood to help keep my hair from getting caught in the strap of my mask and the warmth us a nice extra benefit, I would recommend this hood to anyone.
Reviewer: Jason Griffiths on 4/5/2014Great 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: sonja j. on 4/16/2015Henderson 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: betty mounce on 12/17/2014LavaCore 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: Jeffrey G. on 2/22/2009polyfin 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: Paul M. on 4/11/2013Nice 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: Stephen D. on 8/10/2014Ocean Quest 6oz Premium Lycra Fin Dive Socks Review - $9.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Socks fit well and are sleek, but the top seam (around the ankle) has started to come undone after one wash and four uses. They will still do the job, but the quality is kinda disappointing.
Reviewer: James Finnigan on 1/17/2012Island 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.
Reviewer: Derrick M. on 6/24/2014Dynamite! - These socks have a grippy bottom that helps to stop nasty spills. They fit well. The are perfect to use under full foot fins to avoid painful blisters. They dry quickly. They travel well. I buy a new set every few years because I like them so much.
Reviewer: Grant Macdonald on 8/2/2014LavaCore by Oceanic Trilaminate Polytherm Long Sleeve Hooded Dive Rash Guard Review - $129.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - Very warm, excellent fit (nice and long in the body and sleeves), great with the integrated hood. Very happy with the product.
