The interface where air and water meet is a magical place, the physical crossroad where terrestrial and aquatic life on Earth interact. But not only is it our gateway to the submersed, but the water's surface is also where heat is transferred to and from the atmosphere. Imagine this energy flowing through you the next time you float suspended between these two worlds.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by coastal resiliency

Approximately 40% of humans on Earth live within 100km of the ocean and currently 190 million people globally live at elevations below the projected high tide line for 2100 under low carbon emission conditions. In other words, the water is coming and we need to prepare!

Coastal resiliency is a term used to describe the ability of a community to “bounce back" after hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and flooding – rather than simply reacting to impacts, and it is becoming one of the most important fields of study in science & engineering.

10% of profits from your purchase of this product are donated to the Alfred C. Glassell Jr. SUSTAIN Laboratory at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science

"The SUSTAIN laboratory's collaboration with Waterlust has been a great way to engage students in outreach. So many of them at all levels are interested in bringing our research on hurricanes and climate resilience to the general public. I also often show some of the Waterlust videos in my classes to highlight to the students how engaging this work can be when presented in an interesting way."

Very nice!

I have sun damage on my lower legs and was so glad to find these! I do find the fit a bit small (I am a standard US3X and I would say these are more of a 2X) and I would love a higher rise, but over all I am pretty happy.

Keep Rolling down

I'm between a 14-16 in pants, 5'7" and about 205. I really wanted to like these. I ordered a XL and tried them out for the first time last week. They kept rolling down on me :( Maybe I should've folded them over. Also, I really didn't like how they felt when I got out the pool. I think I'm going to return them for the shorts.

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for this feedback! I am so sorry to hear that you were uncomfortable with the fit of your new gear. I have just responded to the email you sent us about fit and our return process! Hoping we can get you in some gear you feel comfortable and confident in!

Favorite dive leggings

5’2, 117 size small. Could wear xs or s. These are my favorite leggings for warm water diving. Long enough to cover my heels, stay up, don’t get baggy, dry super quickly, don’t get stinky and look fabulous!

Love them!

They are so comfy and so cool looking!

Nice and long

I was looking for dive leggings but most are too short. These are perfect. I wear 35” inseam pants and the XL leggings came to my ankles. Woohoo! They look great too

Got these pants (whale shark and sun kissed) to go snorkelling in the Galapagos. The water was cold. These really helped to take the edge off (I was wearing a shortie wetsuit also). I also used these for hiking. So comfortable and the pocket for my phone was perfect for the hike. I am 5 foot 3 (long legs) W 39" Hips 44" - the XL was perfect size. The length was perfect for me - slightly long but worked in my favour because I could wrap around my heel and slip into my fins. Also got many compliments.. There were 4 of us wearing different patterns and it made it quite easy to find each other while snorkelling in a group. They are so comfortable I have been wearing them around the house.
