  • Note wetsuits have incorrect Geoprene logo, this is Geoflex.

Apollo, the god of music, poetry, art, prophecy, archery and practically everything, was said to inspire Dr. Silverstein naming NASA's Apollo program after seeing an image of the deity riding his chariot across the sun. Much like the grand scale of the space missions and Apollo's many talents, our newest addition to the Matuse wetsuit fleet is also multi-talented and will inspire all surfers alike.

Apollo's mission is to make chest zip experiences great for everyone. Our goal was to design a chest zip that fits more body types and makes the routine of putting on your suit a pleasurable one aka a much easier entry than a moon landing.

The Apollo with Geoflex follows Matuse’s mantra of making products Ichiban (the best) by looking forward, developing materials and construction in the most sustainable ways.

Matuse’s Geoflex Limestone Rubber is made with Eco Carbon Black additive recycled from post-consumer scrap tires in combination with water-based adhesives for fabric lamination, instead of conventional solvent-based glues. This eliminates Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and maintains bonding strength aka the durability you expect from Matuse.

We skip traditional dyeing processes, opting for dope-dyeing yarn to add color before yarn extrusion to save energy and water. To minimize waste, all of our trimmed edges from cutting wetsuit patterns are reused to produce more Geoflex sheets that make our Matuse products.

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

Hydrasilk: Minimizes water adsorption and maintains your suit’s overall shape memory, adding to its longevity. Hydrasilk is buttery-soft and located inside and outside of your suit, aka you won't want to take it off.  
Oversized Knee Pads: Keep your duck diving knee pressure damage to a minimum with our oversized coverage.
• YKK Vislon Zipper: Large #10V size zipper for ease of closure and prevention of salt corrosion.
• Durasoft Nylon Taping: Taping is applied to the inside seams and is soft to the skin, for extra comfort, durability, and warmth.
• Easy access external key pouch: With elastic cord on side of hip / you don't have to take your suit off to access a key or other items stored while surfing.
Fair-Trade Certified Construction -
• Water based adhesives:  Used for laminating our Hydrasilk Nylon instead of conventional solvent-based glues and minimizes Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s).
• Eco Carbon Black:  A recycled additive from post-consumer scrap tires that improves suit durability.
• Dope-dyeing yarn process:  We add color to our Nylon before yarn extrusion, skipping traditional dying processes to save on energy and water.
• Recycled Trims:  All trim from cutting patterns is reused to create more Geoflex sheets, to build more Matuse suits aka we make no waste.

Sizing is off

Overall, the warmth is really nice, but the fit is not great. It's weird, I have a large in the Dante and it fits perfect but a large in this one does not even though the size guide is exactly the same. It's tight in the shoulder and rubs in my armpits and super loose in the waste. I guess I'll keep it becuase I wore it in the water, but I'm not stoked on the fit—a bummer cause I LOVED the Dante it seems like I can't get another.

Silky smooth and light

I had a Matuse suit over a decade ago and finally decided to treat myself to a new one. Incredible product. Super light, even when wet, ultra flexible, and dries fast. What’s not to love? The best feature, though, is the silky interior which makes putting it on and taking it off really easy. Other brands’ fast-drying suits have a fuzzy interior that is actually pretty cumbersome to slide off. First world problem, yes. But why not treat yourself a little, eh?

95% solid

My only complaint is that because I don’t have an A$$ the MS fits me like a diaper . Chest is solid , shoulders , back , legs . It’s just the dumper sag that gives me an issues . If I got a small I’d be cramped up and would feel restricted . But I’m sure it’ll be 100% 10/10 if I get a BBL . But everything else about the suit is perfect the tapped seams , the key pocket in the leg , the silkyness of the suit , and the warmth is insane . Feels like a 4/3 and is like and is super mobile

Matuse does it again. Always Ichiban, Always On Point.

I’ve had many Matuse suits over the years. The Tumo, The Scipio, The Dante, and now the new Apollo. What I like here is the entry system is well thought out and well designed. And the overall seal and taping on the suit is great. Flexibility and mobility are all consistent with the Geoflex neoprene line. And what I love most is how little water absorption there is. These suits weigh almost the same wet as they do dry. Woo Woo!

Another great quilting suit from Matuse but the chest area was a bit tighter then expected
