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: summer h.socks - haha i love my dive socks
Reviewer: Andrew T.Needs More Ballroom For Men - got size ml based on the size chart. have the short-sleeve top in l because ml was too smallso i was nervous to get ml shorts. fit is a little too snug but ok. bigger issue is they need more space in the crotch area for me (a man). "unisex" ? i dont think so. would stretch and work well for women as long as their hips arent too wide. used them once so far, in 77 degree f saltwater and they worked very well. i rinsed them after use and hung to dry in the bathroom (no breeze). didnt dry completely in 48 hours and had to put them in a plastic bag in my suitcase. unfortunately it took 2 days to get home and they smelled of milldew when i got home. my fault, but maybe something can be...View Full Review
Reviewer: Michael E.Pure Instinct by Mares Green Camo Lycra Pants Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I really love these for warm water and light weight belt options. Not very boyant so you need to consider that if you use these instead of a wet suit. Fits well, I got a large and Im 511" 195lbs. No padding on the knees though so be aware when you are on the bottom. But overall a great product exactly what I was looking for.
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: 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: Andrew W.Mares Camouflage Lycra Long Sleeve Rash Guard Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Quality product, great for tropical waters.
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: 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!
