Lavacore exposure suits arrive
Oceanic thermals can be worn under drysuits… or as a wetsuit
American Underwater Products is the design outfit behind Oceanic, Aeris and Hollis dive gear.
Lavacore garments are not quite a dive skin, and not quite a wet suit. They can be worn on their own for diving in warm water, whilst being thin enough for use as undersuit garments in more British-style conditions.
They also offer protection from marine life, sharp corals, sun exposure and all the other hazards a diver typically faces.
The material has a soft fleece lining that allows water in line a wetsuit, yet retains some thermal properties.
On the outside is a knitted nylon wrap covering, over a wind-proof PU middle, and an inner elastic fleece layer.
Oceanic offers male and female specific cut Lavacore products, available in full length suits, shirts and vests.
