Winter’s here and Matuse is ready with a brand new design called the 8C. Had the chance to test the 8C prototype throughout last winter – it’s tried and true quality warmth and comfort.
What’s unique about the 8C is that every panel is 3MM, the perfect thickness for dead-of-winter Southern California surf sessions.
Also, the neck is cut high and comes with a pull-over bib, which helps keep flushing down to a minimum and the frosty breeze off your throat.
Highly recommend checking out the 8C to cover your fullsuit needs this winter.
Here’s some more from Matuse on their latest fullsuit –
Average Water Temperature Range:
56°-64° Fahrenheit. 13°-18° Celcius. (This is an average. Adding a hood and booties will increase the range of water temps you can be comfortable in. Some people may find they can go colder or need thicker rubber for the same water temps depending on personal preferences.)
The 8 is an all 3mm wetsuit that is the perfect combination of warmth vs flexibility.
GEOPRENE STRATEGIC PANELING:
Super-low modulus, max-flex Geoprene that balances the body’s thermostatic line (i.e. you don’t get hot & tired from fighting your suit or cold and bitter from that oil-based neoprene).
HydraSuede, cousin of HydraSilk, is a similarly durable and hydrophobic (i.e., it doesn’t like to absorb water) 4-way stretch nylon. The key difference between HydraSuede and HydraSilk is the “hand” or silky touch.
Human engineered seams enable paddling harmony yet provide a static neck to minimize torque that causes chaffing and flushing.
Kneepads that wrap around more allowing for better coverage and increased comfort and durability.
Inspired by Jet-ski suits, this panel is designed to withstand many-a-swell spent straddling. Better yet, the Saddle Seat’s form-active design keeps your undercarriage happy because it won’t ride-up.
Provides lateral movement and lowers resistance (& time spent getting in & out of your ichiban game).
100% GLUED AND BLIND STITCHED SEAMS WITH SATIN SEAL TAPING:
A powerful trio that provides durability, flexibility and cushy softness for your skin.
360 DEGREE NECKLINE:
No more roughness around your collar. So say goodbye to irritating neck chafing.
EXTERNAL KEY POCKET:
Located just above the outer left knee. Includes elastic loop cord, mini-pocket and zipper closure. This allows you to get into your car without having to remove the top half of your suit.
