Matuse wetsuits are unbelievably warm because they use a superior rubber known as Yamamoto neoprene. These suits are far warmer than others. According to Yamamoto rubber, their neoprene is more elastic than others, which makes a more flexible wetsuit for easier paddling. The superior warmth comes from proprietary technology, which Yamamoto claims to keep you 40% warmer than other suits. Besides warmth, the main quality of a Matuse wetsuit that stands out is its ability to repel water. Unlike other wetsuits, Yamamoto neoprene refuses to absorb water, and therefore stays light weight. When a wetsuit absorbs water it becomes heavy, making you feel sluggish and tired faster. Matuse Hoplite, Artemis, and Tumo fullsuits allow you to paddle warmer, longer, and harder.
Any Matuse wetsuit review will verify how warm and cozy their wetsuit tops, Artemis, Hoplite and Tumo full suits are. When the water is too warm to warrant a Matuse full suit, a wetsuit top may be the perfect piece. Matuse makes a 1mm wetsuit top called the Chapter 1 and a 2mm Philo for men. They also have the Sophia, which is a 2mm women’s wetsuit top. Tops do not restrict movement, while keeping you comfortable. Titanium coated geoprene smooth skin blocks the wind so you stay warm sitting on your board, while at the same time the hydrophobic properties of Yamamoto wetsuit rubber keeps you light and dry.
Matuse suits have a Hydrasilk lining, which rejects water and makes you feel warm. The lining is silky smooth, making it easier to get on and off. Matuse full suits also feature a saddle seat panel, which was inspired by jet-ski suits. Its purpose is to make the crotch more durable and comfortable, stopping the crotch from riding up. The best wetsuit is one that keeps you plenty warm, yet you don’t notice you’re wearing it. By using Yamamoto neoprene, Matuse wetsuits have accomplished that.
