Advocate Apparel Inspired by the green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)

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.

6 out of the 7 species of sea turtles are listed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as either vulnerable or critically endangered. Marine turtles are threatened by pollution, marine plastics and debris, climate change, boat strikes, poaching and bycatch, and habitat loss.

Turtle leggings

So much fun!

Kim Wilson (Portland, OR, US)
Good and warm

They look great, though I wish I had ordered 1 size up. I wore them paddling on a cold day and they were just the thing!

Elizabeth Hill (Niceville, FL, US)

I LOVE my sea turtle leggings! The fabric is soft and pretty and I can’t wait to get out paddle boarding with them.

Turtelly Perfect

These shipped so fast, I already had an eagle ray pair so I knew my size and these fit perfectly too. The pattern looks even better in person! I got so many compliments today at work when I wore them, everyone agreed they're even better in real life. Super comfy and fit well under my wetsuit. Highly recommend if you're on the fence, I've had my other pair for 2 years with lots of use and no rips or anything. Such a great company too. Thanks Waterlust!!

Love these leggings!!

These leggings are absolutely gorgeous and they fit perfectly!! Waterlust’s size guide was super helpful and when it says “Ideal Fit” it definitely means ideal! I can’t wait to get more of their products!

LOVE the print

Love sea turtles and this reminds me of the shells. Leggings are thicker since it’s recycled plastic. I do normally wear a medium and these are a little big and I would have sized down.
