Intimidating stripes cover one of the ocean’s largest apex predators.

Advocate Apparel Inspired by tiger sharks (Galeocerdo cuvier)

Tiger sharks are classified by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as “Near Threatened”, and thus, research, education and outreach is essential to ensuring healthy populations. As one of the ocean’s largest predators, these critical species sit at the top of the food chain, helping to regulate the delicate balance of populations of those beneath in the ecosystem. Decreased populations can result in trophic cascades, impacting the abundance and behavior of other species lower on the food chain.

Multiple research methods have shown that some species of sharks have declined in population by 90% or more during the last several decades in areas where they were formerly abundant. These declines are due to direct targeting in commercial fisheries, mostly for their fins and sometimes meat. Additionally, sharks are often caught unintentionally as bycatch in many other fisheries, caught and killed in some recreational fisheries (unlike catch and release), and may also be impacted by humans more indirectly through threats like habitat loss, pollution, and human-driven declines in the fish species sharks rely on for food.

"We are so proud of our collaboration with Waterlust. Not only does their support help enable our shark conservation research, but the apparel itself is a walking billboard for marine conservation. I love it when people on the street stop to ask me about my tiger shark board shorts. It's an opportunity to start a conversation about the wonders and perils faced by sharks and how the average person can help make a difference.”

Very comfortable and flattering

Soft, stretchy but thick enough to be sturdy. Hope that y'all make mens leggings in more patterns soon.

Great tights!

I wore them for the first time on my surfski today in tropical conditions. The quality of construction is excellent. They did the job keeping the sun off my legs. The pant is just a little low waisted for me, but I'll get used to it. I'm 5-11 and 215 lbs and I got a size large. Out of the package they looked small, but stretched into shape around my manly figure just fine. I like that I can wear the tights without having to put on board shorts for modesty. But who cares anyway, I'm 71 years old! Dig it!

Best leggings

Use mine as my uniform almost daily as a flyfishing guide. Love the pockets, fits my phone perfectly

Great Leggings!!!

Simply stated, these are a fantastic product! I have fair skin and wanted extra protection on an upcoming trip to Hawaii. These leggings have exceeded all expectations. High quality material and construction, they are great in the water. The material adheres to your skin and you forget you're wearing them. Sand and rocks don't seem to have any impact and after a week of daily use, they still look new. Most importantly, no sun burn!
I've also used them for yoga/exercise and they perform equally as well.
Regarding the size, I wear a 36" jeans size and went with a large. They fit well. And having long legs, I appreciate the unfinished, long inseam.
