Lavacore clothing is an alternative to neoprene for active water users. Our Simply Scuba Lavacore collection is made for surfers and swimmers. Lavacore material is great for scuba diving and snorkelling as it acts much like a neoprene wetsuit but is breathable, flexible and most importantly neutrally buoyant. Similar to a 2-3mm wetsuit as far as warmth Lavacore is a three layer material that keeps you warm even when fully submerged. A fleece inner layer is soft against bare skin and stops water movement inside so you stay warm. The mid layer is a thin membrane that stops the wind but allows moisture to wick through so you stay dry on the surface.  The outer layer protects you from bumps, scrapes and the sun as well as allow the suit to move and flex so you can be active in the water.
