Matuse Wetsuits, Clothing and Accessories
Matuse are a leading new name in the surf scene. Their innovative technologies have allowed for ground breaking new design in wetsuits, clothing and accessories. Matuse lives, breathes, eats and sleeps surf! They're not just about their products, they offer a valuable perspective on life.
All Matuse wetsuits are made using Geoprene Technology. Geoprene is 98% water impermeable as opposed to 65% water impermeable like Neoprene and other materials commonly used in the manufacture of wetsuits. Plus it's maximum elongation is 480-530% (human skin is only 60-70%.) All the science behind this means that Matuse wetsuits meet the core functions for every surfer; flexibility, comfort, insulation and durability. So you can focus on the more important things in life, like surfing, rather than worrying about being cold and uncomfortable!
Matuse are big on technology, but they also are big on environmental awareness. That's why they only use Geoprene to manufacture their wet suits. It is much more sustainable than other materials as it is derived from 99.7% pure limestone unlike other materials which are mainly petroleum based. Estimates show that their source of limestone has reserves to last around 3,000 years. Now that's sustainability.
