Lavacore is the ideal garment for use in or above the water when in wet environments. The thermal inner lining holds heat to your body when wet, the middle wind break keep the chill away and the outer shell protects the fabric.
Wear on it’s own or under a wetsuit! Long sleeves are ideal for snorkelling and sun protection and can also help to slide your wetsuit over your arms.
Also available in long pants.
Designed for watersports such as diving, snorkelling, kite surfing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking etc.
An excellent staple for any dive wardrobe.
Our warmest undergarment, equivalent to a 400g thinsulate with less bulk due to body-mapped insulation and strategically placed compression-resistant Spacetek material in key exposure areas to maximise insulation when diving in horizontal trim.
Maximising thermal protection whilst minimising buoyancy, the Halo 3D has body-mapped insulation, strategically placed to enhance protection when in horizontal trim. Designed for use underneath membrane and trilaminate dry suits.
Convenient zipped sleeve pocket, full length double-headed zip with internal and external zip cover, thumb loops to aid donning, secure foot stirrups to prevent legs riding up, simple one piece design, machine washable and quick drying.
Baselayer protection for extended range diving. Developed using antimicrobial silver ion treatments, this fabric was tested in the extreme environments of the J2 cave system, one of the deepest in the world. It is stretchy, warm, and won’t let you down.
With excellent anti-microbial performance thanks to the use of silver ion technology, and outstanding wicking from a unique fabric, the J2 baselayer is designed for extended use under a drysuit.
Keeping the skin dry can be critical to success, whether it is staying warm, or preventing infections. The J2 baselayer was designed to wick perspiration away from the skin and maintain a dry zone next to the skin. Air is a better insulator than water and consequently, the baselayer ensures better thermal protection.
The J2 baselayer system takes this performance further with tried and tested anti-microbial silver ions embedded within the fibres of the fabric. This enables long, repetitive wear without the risk of skin infections developing – something which was critical on the US Deep Caving Team’s 2013 expedition to explore the Cheve cave system in Mexico, for which the J2 was specifically developed.
The J2 wicking performance also comes into its own when the fabric gets wet. Water is wicked away from the skin, and with the right combination of drysuit underwear, further away though the fibres of the undersuit. Even in the event of a suit flood, the J2 will retain some of its performance.
Silver ions are incorporated into the fibres when they are manufactured, ensuring that the bacteriostatic and anti-fungal properties of the fabric last. This cannot be washed off. The silver ions prevent the formation of bacterial cell membranes, preventing most bacteria from growing in the fibres of the garment. However, this will not adversely affect the naturally occurring bacteria on the skin itself.
Our answer to the electrically heated vest or undergarment. Utiltising the body’s own heat output and retaining it, weight for weight the X-Core is our warmest undergarment yet. Pair it with an Arctic, Halo 3D or Arctic Expedition to experience warmth without batteries or wires
The physiological response to cold stress is to reduce blood flow to the periphery and look after the body core, where it can often just be a matter of time before cold becomes the limiting factor in the safety and enjoyment of a dive. X-Core provides extreme thermal protection to the core, enabling longer, more comfortable dives.
Designed to be worn under an Arctic, Arctic Expedition, Halo 3D or any other drysuit undergarment, X-Core augments thermal protection to the extent that electric heating can be avoided in many instances. It performs best over a lightweight baselayer such as J2 or Xerotherm but the X-Core can also be worn as a next-to-skin garment for critical core protection.
More than 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year, endangering marine and bird life and creating almost unfathomable areas of pollution, from local water courses to vast plastic gyres. Reducing the plastic we discard is part of the solution to improving the health of our oceans.
X-Core is made with REPREVE® – a fibre that is made from recycled post-consumer waste, including used plastic bottles. Plastic is removed from the waste stream and prevented from reaching the ocean. 76% of the fibre composition of X-Core is recycled polyester.
The Polartec® fabric used in X-Core is manufactured to the highest environmental standards. It has Blue Sign® and Oeko-Tex® certification to indicate that harmful chemicals are minimised or eliminated and that waste water is treated to ensure its purity before being released from the factory.
