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.

Almost Perfect

Fits great, comfortable. I'm 5'6, 130 lbs and ordered a size 8. I wanted to love this wetsuit, but I like to wear my hair in a bun while surfing, and the neck is too high, it pulls on all the hair under the bun when I'm paddling. Gotta wear my hair down to not be annoyed the whole time

As always, the best!

I have the d’Arc wetsuit for every season. It’s buttery, flexible, and fits like a glove. I have a whole closet of wetsuits but I highly prefer to wear my d’Arc daily. Matuse is one of the best in the game when it comes to wetsuits and customer service. Thank you Matuse, I’m a forever customer 🙌🏼

I bought this for my daughter for 2023 Christmas. I’ve had my Matuse spring suit for about 15 years. I know the material is top notch. Daughter already used it for a scuba dive at Cozumel, Mexico in early Jan 2024. She love it. She will use it for surfing. Sizing is true.

Good suit

Great quality overall for the price. Honest criticism is the armhole is small and takes on water easily.
