Sea turtle 🐢 leggings

LOVE LOVE LOVE these leggings. I had previously purchased the sea turtle reversible top, which I wear under my wetsuit for diving and I decided it was time to buy the matching leggings- perfect for wearing under my wetsuit when diving in the local springs. Have a trip planned to the Bahamas this winter and will be wearing them regularly both above and below the sea. Just ordered the tiger shark version of the top and leggings as well.

Best leggings ever

This is my third pair of waterlust leggings and I am in love. They are so comfortable and wick moisture so quickly I often use them when diving as a skinsuit.

These Sea Turtle leggings are the bees knees! I am the hippest sixty one year old out there when I wear these beauties! I am 5'4" and 160, so not the anything like the slim models in the photos, but the medium fits me very nicely. Love the pockets for my phone I neeeed it near me at all times.

Great quality, needs slightly better pattern placement.

I have been eyeing these for quite a while, and was very excited to get them as an early holiday present. I wanted to give them 1,000 stars, because I love how they're made and the fact that they give back to causes I am passionate about. On first impressions, I DO think they're worth the money. I am usually a size M or L in yoga leggings (size 8/10 in Lucky jeans, size M in Balance Collection and RBX leggings, L in Calvin Klein leggings). I purchased the L size and it's a pretty good fit; form fitting with moderate compression in the stomach and not see through that I can tell, although there is a bit of extra fabric behind the knee that might be weird in the water (see pics) and the waist band does roll (but I'm the first to admit that middle aged spread has hit me hard during quaratine).
My only complaint, and the reason for the 4 stars, is that if you hem the leggings at all, you lose most, if not ALL, of the black/white pattern on the bottom. And while I really like the turtle shell pattern, I think the black and white pattern on the calf really breaks it up and elevates the overall look of the legging. I'm 5'6 with what I thought were average length legs, and as you can see in my pictures, the black/white starts much lower on my legs than it does on the women in the website pictures. If I were to hem the leggings to my ankle, there would be only a smidgen of the black and white pattern left. It would be really nice if that part got moved up the leg so you didn't lose it all if you hem.

Dr. Fuentes with loggerhead turtle

A solitary species that rarely interacts with others outside of mating rituals, sea turtles struggle to survive from the day they hatch out of their egg. Sea turtle mortality rates are depressingly high, about 99% of juveniles will meet their demise before reaching sexual maturity. Dr. Mariana Fuentes is a marine conservation biologist at Florida State University and focuses her research on developing science-based solutions for the conservation and management of sea turtles. Her research group integrates field-based ecology with systematic conservation planning, decision theory approaches, climate modeling and applied qualitative and geographic spatial analysis to answer a series of ecological and management topics related to sea turtles.

10% of profits from your purchase will be donated to the FSU Marine Turtle Research, Ecology and Conservation Group, led by Dr. Mariana Fuentes, and will be used to fund two projects. The first initiative is to assess the effects that the recreational bay scallop fishery has on sea turtles in the Big Bend of Florida. Researchers will collect biological, ecological and spatial data on sea turtles in the region and use it to inform management practices to better protect these endangered species. The second is to increase night monitoring of St. George Island, Florida and to identify threats to turtles nesting there. The information gained will aid in identifying critical habitats and provide important information to better understand the size, nesting behaviors, and movements of sea turtles in the region.
