Weight for weight, X-CORE is our warmest undergarment ever. The minimalist vest provides extreme thermal protection to the core, enabling longer, safer, more comfortable dives. Designed to be worn under an Arctic, Arctic Expedition, HALO 3D or any other drysuit undergarment, this is a product for every diver looking to extend their season.
This is our answer for someone looking for more warmth and considering an electrically heated product. Emerging research from DAN and other sources is beginning to show that there may be many more physiological problems with the use of active heating systems, so we have developed a product designed to maximise the retention of body heat.
The body has an approximate power of 100W (similar to that of a bright, incandescent light bulb - remember those and how hot they were?) and the majority of this energy generated is dissipated as heat. X-CORE aims to trap some of this heat in the dense fibres of the fabric, insulating the body core and maximising comfort.
The X-CORE vest is perfect next to skin or over a base layer like the Xerotherm or J2. All-way stretch fabric gives a snug fit on the torso, but the sleeveless design prevents bulk around the arms and allows complete freedom of movement for valve shutdowns etc. The long body portion provides excellent coverage and prevents the vest riding up.

AN OCEANPOSITIVE PRODUCT
X-CORE is the next stage of the development of our OceanPositive concept to include more than just swimwear and rash guards. To be truly OceanPositive, we have begun a journey of re-envisioning our company and its products. The X-CORE vest is made from 76% recycled post consumer plastic waste, yet its performance is not compromised in any way. The fabric is BlueSign® certified (meaning that the manufacturing process meets the highest sustainability standards), and the dyes used are certified by Oeko-Tex®) as not containing any harmful substances.
