Advocate Apparel Inspired by the largest fish in the sea, the whale shark (Rhincodon typus)

Whale sharks (Rhincodon typus) are fish, not whales - allowing them to hold the esteemed title of "largest fish in the sea" (since sharks are fish too!). These charismatic creatures can reach lengths of 12 meters (40 feet) or more! Despite their large size, they feed on some of the smallest organisms in the sea, plankton. Hanging vertically in the water column they're able to suction feed and filter these tiny organisms through their gill rakers much like a giant vacuum cleaner pulls dust and dirt from a kitchen floor, filtering the fragments into its chamber within.

Unfortunately, approximately 100 million sharks are killed every year by humans, through direct targeted fishing efforts as well as unintended bycatch from other fisheries. The whale shark is one species of shark that is particularly vulnerable to this commercial fishing due to their high value in international trade, in addition to their highly migratory nature and normally low abundance. Research into the lives of these gentle giants can help us to manage their populations and keep these magnificent fish in the ocean where they belong.

“Waterlust's support provides critical seed funding for us to rapidly develop and implement whale shark conservation projects in areas where this globally-endangered species is most at risk. This includes Mozambique, where our research and awareness work helped the government decide to fully protect whale sharks just a few weeks ago. We love working with a company that is so committed to making a positive change in the world.”

Awesome!

The leggings and shorts fit great and are made of durable thicker material than other comparable types. Since I actually do whale shark research, these will be great to use on our next tagging trip this summer.

Extraordinary

Extraordinary customer service
I wrote the company because I saw that the whale Shark men’s leggings was a pre order. I was curious about shipment time, due to my Husband just had his 3rd skin cancer removed. We just want to be safe while enjoying scuba diving and snorkeling while taking care of the reefs and our health.
Waterlust send the leggings out the same day and even upgraded us to a 2 day shipping. We received our order 2 days later even though we live in Hawaii
Thank you so much

Amazing Yoga Pants for Men

I love these yoga pants — however, if you want them to fit snug, definitely size down. I am 6’2” and 190lbs, and the mediums fit me perfectly (for a snug fit)

Haven't had a chance to try them out yet.

Received order in a timely fashion. Product seems to be durable and am looking to a bone fishing trip to Mexico in April to put them to the test!

Ready for desert rivers

Purchased to replace a pair of tights I wear under my board shorts while guiding the Colorado river. The material feel like it will stand up to the rigers of raft guide life.
