Geoprene instead of neoprene.
Warmer, lighter, faster-drying, and longer-lasting than most of the competition out there, the Matuse Men's Hoplite 3/2MM Full Wetsuit is the perfect companion for gray days and chilly waters (ranging from 58-66F) that are bound to scare away the less dedicated and ill-prepared. Crafted from the incredibly innovative Geoprene (which is actually made from limestone, hence the name GEO), this suit's material is over 30% more water-impermeable than petroleum-based neoprene suits, way less water-absorbent for a lighter and quicker-drying performance, and offers 400% greater stretch than your own skin for an unbelievably flexible design that never gets stretch marks. Since Geoprene is naturally warmer than neoprene, less of it needs to be used, resulting in not only a lighter design, but also a far smaller impact on the environment when manufactured. And worry not about a single scratch destroying the suit's integrity, Geoprene rubber has a uniform microcell structure that, when scratched, allows new independent concave cells to be exposed for continued functionality and warmth. Plus, a rear zip entry system makes for exceptional comfort when waiting for your drop-in.
