The Tumo is named after the Buddhist meditation technique where monks sit naked in snow under a wet blanket, drying it out with their own body heat. Now that’s warm. So jump into the coldest environments, because the Tumo hooded wetsuit has you covered--even if you don't meditate.
At Matuse, we strive to make products and experiences Ichiban aka the best. We design for longevity and performance and take this responsibility seriously. In 2006, we were the first to introduce premium Japanese limestone rubber to the surf market from Yamamoto Corporation called Geoprene. Matuse Limestone Geoprene is a completely closed cell structure, absorbing less water (98% water impermeable) which means it's lighter in and out of the water and takes less time to dry for your next session. This innovative material is layered with titanium-alloy solution to help retain your body's warmth and has the ability to stretch 350% its size while maintaining superb elastic memory aka the flexibility you need without losing shape. The combination of these features makes Geoprene the longest lasting wetsuit you will find in the world: warmer, lighter, more flexible and kinder to Mother Nature.
The Tumo with Geoprene allows you to focus on the right issues (like better surfing), and fuss less over the wrong ones (like being cold and uncomfortable). A premium Ichiban Matuse will get you out of bed in the morning aka more excuses to surf and less excuses not to.
