Spotted Eagle Ray Leggings

Educational resources & donation included with every purchase. Learn more.

Known for their beautiful and unique spot patterns, spotted eagle rays fill key roles in the marine ecosystem. As both predators and prey, they eat animals such as clams and conchs, while also being eaten by large sharks. Worldwide, more than one-quarter of marine rays are threatened with extinction from targeted fisheries, bycatch and loss of habitat.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by the spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari)

It is illegal to fish for or kill this beautiful and charismatic ray in Florida waters, however they are not protected under federal laws and international protections are limited as well. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), an organization that establishes the conservation status of species worldwide, lists them as near-threatened with a decreasing population trend.

In some countries, spotted eagle rays are harvested as food and are caught as bycatch (unintentional catch in commercial fisheries that target other species). Spotted eagle rays also face a variety of threats from habitat loss, harmful algal blooms, and entanglement in fishing gear. These threats, combined with their extremely low reproductive rate, make these rays vulnerable to population declines. To help create better conservation management plans for this species, Mote and other research institutions are defining the distribution, migration, feeding habits, growth rates, and reproductive biology of spotted eagle rays.

Toni Hebert (Slidell, LA, US)
Awesome quality

Very soft. Have not swam with them yet. They are about 2 inches too long for Large. But that is my size. It is not an issue for me though. Great quality and feel.

Capt Clay Ching (Honolulu, HI, US)
Perfect fit

Bought this set for my daughter just to bless her, she likes the versatility of being able to reverse it.

Best skins around

I had already purchased whale shark and parrot fish apparel and received so many compliments and questions about where to purchase. The Eagle Ray skins are just as nice. Can't wait to dive soon

Rowena Mangohig (Kailua, HI, US)

Regular yoga pants squeeze me in the wrong places, but these have just the right amount of give for the perfect fit. The eagle ray pattern is beautiful! Looking forward to my next pair.

Denise White (Scottsdale, AZ, US)
True to size

I am very happy with the leggings. I have tried them on to make sure they fit. They fit true to size. I purchased these to make it easier to get a wetsuit on for diving. That test will happen in May 2022. Will add additional details after my dive trip.

Lisa C (Knoxville, TN, US)

I just wore these every day for a week snorkeling in the Virgin Islands and they are fantastic! Totally protected my legs from the sun and they stay up perfectly in the water (and out). They dry pretty quickly and are comfortable to walk/hike around in too, even when wet. You can tell the materials and construction are of incredible quality--they've washed well and didn't catch or snag while hiking around lots of thorny plants. A very personal final point, but I REALLY appreciate that these leggings are designed long and can simply be cut shorter if needed--I am over six feet tall and the original length was great. It made me so happy to buy a somewhat specialty clothing item in a "standard" size that actually considered tall people (and people of all heights!) in the design process.
