Kokatat Neck Gasket

(Item: KOKNECK )





This neck gasket is the official factory replacement neck seal for all Kokatat brand dry suits and dry tops. Instructions are included. Kokatat's gaskets will work on most other brands of drysuit and drytops, however, we also offer Universal Neck Gaskets which fit better on most other brands, are available in a wider range of sizes, and cost less.

To have K.A. replace your latex dry sock(s), click "Kokatat Gasket Replacement..."

To install these gaskets yourself, we recommend using Aquaseal Adhesive (sold separately and we only ship it via UPS Ground due to HazMat regulations, so you may want to buy it at your local sporting goods shop or SCUBA dive shop). A 1oz tube of Aquaseal Adhesive is sufficient for replacing all gaskets on at least one suit. We highly recommend buying our Neck Gasket Replacement Tool to make it easy to do a professional quality job when installing new neck gaskets. There's no need to fuss with traffic cones or soccer balls, get the tools to do the job right. These tools are sold separately, use the "Continue Shopping" button to find them. See Neck Gasket Replacement Tool

Kokatat latex neck gaskets only come in two sizes: small and large. However, the gaskets are tapered, and you can loosen the fit of them by trimming material off the top. There are cutting guide rings molded into the top of the gasket about 1/4" apart to facilitate trimming. To make a straight cut just stay between the lines and use sharp scissors (for best results, buy a new pair of scissors from a sewing supply store).

Note: If Kokatat's S neck it too loose on you or you have to trim their L neck down till there are only three rings left, we suggest trying our Universal Neck Gaskets which are available in a wider range of sizes. Use your browser's back arrow to view our Universal gaskets.

Kokatat's neck gaskets only come in two neck sizes: L and S (and the L isn't very large). For Kokatat gear, only men's and women's size Small dry suits and dry tops come with the S neck gasket, all other sizes come with the L neck gasket. However, a lot of women who wear a Kokatat Women's M size dry top or dry suit actually need a S neck gasket. There is no M neck gasket, but a S neck can be trimmed to make it fit like a "M".

Neck Sizes (measure around your neck, do NOT cinch tight):
S up to 13"
L 13" and up
