Great customer service!

I ordered these for my boyfriend and at first the size I selected was too small. Sent it back for an exchange and the turn around rate was super quick, there was no waiting or need to contact customer support. Everything was handled in a timely manner and I got the correct size. Thank you Waterlust!

We got there, just be patient with sizing

They feel great and are constructed well -- I ordered using the measurements from the sizing guide and that ended up being two sizes too small. Returning them for my "vanity size" got me the right fit. So I ended up needing the size 33 even though my waist measured 39 inches. No complaints, returns were super easy, and mystical vanity sizing is a thing for other stores, too.

ADVOCATE APPAREL INSPIRED BY THE Floridan Aquifer

Alachua Conservation Trust LogoFlorida evokes daydreams of white sandy beaches and palm trees – but perhaps the most magnificent water in Florida lies just out of sight. In the Sunshine State, water fills the limestone cavities of the Floridan aquifer beneath our feet. This is the source of drinking water for 92% of Floridians. But this water is not always hidden - where it finds its way to the surface, it forms marvelous freshwater springs, which support not only human life in Florida but also incredibly diverse and unique aquatic ecosystems. In fact, Florida is home to the highest density of freshwater springs in the world – more than 1,000 of them dot the karst landscape of the sunny peninsula.

Unfortunately, increasing development and growing pressures on water resources are having negative impacts on Florida’s springs. Over the past 15 or 20 years, Florida’s burgeoning population has had a plethora of consequences for the springs, namely decreases in flow due to over-pumping and a transition from native underwater grasses to nasty algae. Nitrate levels in the springs have skyrocketed and ecosystem dynamics have changed as food webs are altered.

Thankfully there are many passionate citizens and non-profit organizations that advocate for our springs, work to protect them, and raise awareness about their unique beauty as well as their decline. One of these groups is the Alachua Conservation Trust, a non-profit regional land trust created to address the need of protecting critical natural lands from development and degradation in North Central Florida. 10% of profits from our springs prints go their work to conserve, restore and celebrate this important resource.
