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: Erik SandstromOcean Quest 6oz Premium Lycra Short Sleeve Rash Guard Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Love the quality and warmth for warmer water dives that might still leave a diver a bit chilled after a long dive. Wore it in the Caribbean to about 80-90 ft., it was just enough to stay the right temp with no other form of exposure suit. It does run small, as many have noted - I usually wear an XL shirt, but I ordered the 2XL rash guard - and it is a comfy fit for sure!
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: John P.XS Scuba Beefy Polyolefin Hot Dive Socks Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I use knee high compression stockings from the womans section of the department store. These are nice, but I wish they were longer. Choice of knee high would earn my fifth star. What the other reviews say about warmth is accurate. I do not dive without socks. These would be a good first pair for those who want to try out diving in socks.
Reviewer: Wesley JueckstockGreat for cold waters - i purchased as a undergarment to wear under my 5mm aqualung wetsuit on a recent dive trip to catalina and santa monica islands. did multiple dives each day for 4 days. the lavacore pants and shirt kept me very warm in the water and between dives on deck. it also made donning on/off thicker cold water wetsuit easier. highly recommend lavacore products as undergarments when diving cold water. it allows you to avoid the thinker (7 or 8mm) wetsuits which limit movement. will be diving roatan and belize in february and will try the lavacore shirt and shorts by itself. will on the warm water experience.
Reviewer: Key M.Ocean Quest 6oz Premium Lycra Long Sleeve Rash Guard. Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I really like this rash skin. Good quality in term of both workmanship and material. Fits my body very well and does not hinder any arm movement. Nice design as well. I use it for swimming, wear alone or when the water is cold, or when I go scuba diving, wear under a wetsuit or vest.
Reviewer: Gerald R.ScubaPro Loose Fit Long Sleeve Rash Guard Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - I used this in Roatan Honduras. It fit fine under my wet suit, was not form fitting which is good and protected well from sun burn.
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: Chad N.SharkSkin ChillProof Climate Control Trilaminate Micro Fleece Short Sleeve Mens Shirt Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - This is warm and well made. I was not sure how it was going to be but a believer now. I am going to buy the long sleeve version next. Great for keeping the wind off of you!
Reviewer: Tiffany D.SharkSkin ChillProof Trilaminate Micro Fleece Womens Pants - Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Nice- wish they made women petites.
Reviewer: Peter MillerONeill Mens 8 Ounce Thermo Long Sleeve Crew Rash Guard Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Enables me to wear a thinner suit during winter with combo of a thermo top. Better paddling.
Reviewer: Tiffany D.SharkSkin ChillProof Climate Control Trilaminate Micro Fleece Long Sleeve Womens Top Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Wow- amazingly wonderful!!!
Reviewer: Gary L NicholsPure Instinct by Mares Blue Camo Lycra Pants Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - This was a no brainer purchase. Quality workmanship, excellent pattern. I would highly reommend this product.
Reviewer: Victor A.Have not yet tried it out. - The product was back-ordered, so when I received it late, the swim season had already passed me by. Next spring I will give it a spin.
Reviewer: Andrew W.Mares Camouflage Lycra Long Sleeve Rash Guard Review - Scuba Gear Reviews - Quality product, great for tropical waters.
Reviewer: John K.Rash Guard - The item arrived timely and just as ordered. So you know, I am 510" and 180 lbs and can usually wear medium or large. I ordered a large and it is pretty tight so the item runs a bit small.
Reviewer: Grant MacdonaldSimple but effective - This is a simple product but nonetheless Im very happy with it. I usually only scuba dive but on a recent trip we did some snorkeling and I didnt want to get my scalp sunburned. The hood was great for this and I found it to be a good fit and I didnt notice it when I was in the water. Easy to rinse out and quick to dry and adds nothing to luggage (size and weight). Something I didnt even think of that was an added benefit was that my mask strap didnt pull out any of my hair, I dont have much left :-).
Reviewer: Donald DeCoursey JrFantastic - Bought 2 of these, one for myself and one for my wife. we both love them. Thinking about buying 2 more. Size are very close. If you like a looser fit I would go a size larger.
Reviewer: Craig F.Body Glove 6 Oz. 540 Lycra Rash Guard Shorts Review - $29.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - These shorts look like bicycle shorts in that are snug and a little long. I live in the South Pacific and dive 4-5 times a week. Down here the reef is huge and sharp. You have to have a second skin to provide a measure of insulation between you and Fire Coral. These shorts have held up well and dry fast. Its no fun putting on cold wet gear. I shopped around, and I found the price and shipping very competitive. What more can you ask for?
Reviewer: Valerie HennessyRyan - The Shark skin shirt fit perfect and kept me from getting sunburned while scuba diving in Jamaica. It didnt ride up and was comfortable wearing on the beach. I feel it was well worth the money and plan to buy more in the future.
Reviewer: Deborah C.Aqua Lung Long Sleeve Rash Guard Review - $44.00 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews - I wasnt UNHAPPY with the rash guard but simply trying for a top to wear with new scuba.com provided camo bottom skin. Forgot necklines on most rash guards make me crazy. But those great guys at SCUBA.COM got me a RMA (return merchandise) and posted the refund to my credit card pronto. Now, if I could only find a camo V neck, long-sleeve, water resistant.......View Full Review
