Joan of Arc aka d’Arc was a warrior heroine who at the age of 18 became a general for the French army. In this spirit, your d’Arc will conquer any surf session without all the swords and armor.

The d’Arc with Geoflex follows the Matuse mantra of making products Ichiban (the best) by looking forward at developing materials and construction that are built in the most sustainable ways.

Matuse’s Geoflex Limestone Rubber is made with Eco Carbon Black additive that is recycled from post-consumer scrap tires, in combination with water-based adhesives for fabric lamination, instead of conventional solvent-base glues. This helps eliminate Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) while maintaining bonding strength aka the durability you expect from Matuse. Additionally, we use a dope-dying yarn to add color before yarn extrusion, skipping traditional dying processes to save on energy and water. Also, all of our trimmed edges when cutting wetsuit patterns are reused to produce more Geoflex sheets to make more Matuse products and minimizes waste.

The d'Arc with Geoflex is fair-trade certified and is the next generation of responsible building that doesn’t sacrifice on the performance you expect.

So far it’s great!

I got a 4/3 chest zip d’Arc on a really good sale and found the size 4 was too small but the size 6 fits perfectly. For reference I’m 5’6, 120lbs, slender/athletic build. The suit isn’t as flexible in the shoulders as my previous 4/3 Rip Curl E-Bomb but the Matuse one is much warmer and seems like it will be more durable… the E-Bomb’s neoprene started ripping through in the calves and arm pits after 1.5 years with actual holes, and effectively became a 3/2 suit. For my first surf in the d’Arc, I didn’t get cold at all during a sunny SoCal winter day’s ~1.5 hr session in 57 degree water. Hoping to get a few years out of this one and it was a great deal for the price.

So this is what a wetsuit is supposed to feel like.

After using the same 4/3 for 5 years, it just wasn't keeping me warm anymore. A friend directed me toward Matuse's sale & I decided it was a sign. Seriously, this wetsuit fits perfectly. I'm 5'9" and around 140-145lbs and I got the 8T. A lot of people told me to size up because they run snug, but they didn't have a 10T so I went with the 8T & other than some normal tightness, it's really not as bad as people made it out to be as far as breaking it in goes. The material is amazing & feels like quality. Plus it's beautiful. Thanks Matuse!

Love it

I had to go up in size to get the proper fit. But I've been in water, solely, wearing this suit, and it has been toasty. Maybe too toasty because the water temp is not that cold yet 😜. Thank you Matuse!
