Technology of Lavacore
Lavacore is a technically advanced fabric,
constructed and engineered exclusively for water sports requiring the ultimate
in thermal control and superior comfort. This unique synthetic construction
closely matches the stretch and movement of a traditional lycra rash vest,
whilst providing the insulation qualities similar to that of a Neoprene
wetsuit. Close to the skin, Lavacore's soft internal fleece and high 4-way
stretch produces the ultimate comfort>warmth>weight ratio, a true
leader amongst any fabrics within the water sports industry. Wet or dry, hot or
cold, Lavacore helps control your core temperature longer, whether worn as a
stand alone garment, or under your wetsuit or clothing.
