LavaCore sale on now

We have found the LavaCore products to be outstanding as a wind proof and warming layer beneath a wet suit or to wear in place of a skin in warmer climates. But there are some great uses outside of diving:

  • Use as a base layer for skiing
  • Winter work outside – Stick wears his all winter while servicing HVAC units on top of buildings
  • PACKER GAMES!!!
  • An undergarment while Snow blowing (argh the thought of it…)
  • You will be amazed at not just the shirts but shorts, pants, socks, gloves and hoods.
