Like Dante’s journey, the path to making the most sustainable wetsuit is no easy feat, but if you don’t commit to the path, you can never arrive at your destination. The Dante 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 Dante with Geoflex is fair-trade certified and is the next generation of responsible building that doesn’t sacrifice on the performance you expect.

Buttery neoprene

I’ve had this suit for the past two winter and keep wanting it to be just right but if you’re a taller fella watch out for the xxl cause it’ll make you feel like your torso is being compressed. Also the legs are a little short and sometimes ride up above your boots. Solid wetsuit and super high quality materials but if you’re over 6 feet a little uncomfortable. The smoothest wetsuit I’ve ever slid on my limbs.

Great suit

In my experience These are the best suits for Northern California Dawn Patrol. Light, flexible, quick drying, super smooth and comfortable inside, does not seem to absorb water. This suit is The real deal.

Feels like cozy pajamas!

I have had a lot of wetsuits, all prices, and many different thicknesses, but Matuse is at an entirely different level. When I put this suit on it slips on super smooth and feels amazing against my skin. It feels like I am wearing cozy pajamas, seriously. Never been so comfortable, never been this warm, while still having flexibility. I have their 4/3 version too, and although the 5/4 is a bit harder to get on and off, (which is to be expected), it’s still about a flexible as other 4/3 suits I’ve had from other brands. Geoflex for the win🤙 I am a bodysurfer, and water photographer, so I am up to my neck for hours everyday, and I always say, as long as the suit is comfortable, I’d rather be “too warm”, and be able to flush and cool off, than be stuck feeling too cold, and not being able to warm up! I’m a believer in Matuse. Keep up the good work.

Very worth it

I saw Matuse suits tend a little small so I got a full size up. I am 5,10" and 165lb, and the Large fits perfectly. Range of motion is great and feels like a good 4/3, and I'm a bunch of sessions in and absolutely no leaks. I am impressed how well designed the suit is, everything fits right and works. I am over buying wetsuits from private equity firms and acting like a 5/4 is overkill in Ventura. Comfort goes a long way. I love the suit. Also, I got the booties and they're sick too.
