Kokatat Legacy Drysuit, GORE TEX PRO, Men's 15% Off Sale Ends May 30
The men's Kokatat Legacy drysuit is a Gore-Tex® PRO Front Entry dry suit with Gore-Tex® PRO Dry Socks and a Relief Zipper. The Legacy replaced the "Gore Front Entry" drysuit and is the new standard of Kokatat's men's dry suit line. It's ideal for most sea kayaking, canoeing, and sailing, rafting, kite-boarding, sail boarding, rowing, and many other water sports. Most of Kokatat's dry suit options (i.e. Pockets, Reflective Tape, Internal Suspenders) can be added to a Legacy and we can help you order a custom sized Legacy dry suit with the feature(s) you need. It comes in Men's and Women's styles; we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Men's Kokatat Legacy drysuit.
Note: we stock L and XL Legacy suits with custom sized socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large dry-socks on Large and XL size suits. These custom suits are the same price as the standard suits and you can order them here by selecting the sock size from the menu.
The Kokatat Legacy dry suits have: a front entry zipper that runs diagonally across the chest of the suit, making it easy to get in and out of (as opposed to dry suits with rear entry shoulder zippers that require teamwork to get in and out of without breaking the zipper), latex neck and wrist gaskets, neoprene "punch through" neck covers (no more Velcro tab to chafe against your neck) and neoprene wrist and ankle cuffs with "hook & loop" adjustable tab closures to keep gravel out of your booties -- all included standard. Additionally, it comes with a Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), Gore-Tex Pro® Dry Socks, and zipper covers over both the entry zipper and relief zip to protect the zippers. With a basic dry suit, the hardest part of suiting up is bending over and stretching the ankle gasket over your heel, but if your suit has Dry Socks as the Legacy drysuit does, then the drysuit won't have any nasty ankle gaskets! So, in addition to being more comfortable because your feet are warmer and dry, a dry suit with Dry Socks is much easier to step in and out of.
Kokatat has four sizes of dry-socks, but they use the Medium size sock (for shoe size 9 - 11) on all but their Small and XXL size suits. We find a lot of men who wear a size Large suit and most who wear a size XL need the Large sock (for shoe size 11.5 to 15). So on our best selling dry suits like the Legacy we stock suits with custom sized socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large dry-socks on Large and XL size suits. These custom suits are the same price as the standard suits and you can order them here by selecting the sock size from the menu. Another reason to buy your dry suit from K.A.
If you can't afford a Legacy, the next best drysuit is the Kokatat Hydrus 3-Layer Swift Entry suit with Relief Zipper and Dry Socks. It costs less than any other waterproof/breathable dry suit like it. If you aren't planning to use the suit for doing a lot of rolling in a kayak, then the Legacy is your best value. However, for white-water kayaking (in a hard-shell kayak) you'll want a dry suits with an overskirt, see our selection of Kokatat's: Hydrus 3L Meridian, Gore-Tex® PRO Meridian, and Gore-Tex® PRO Odyssey dry suits. Sea kayakers who practice lots of rolls appreciate an overskirt too, but most sea kayakers don't find the overskirt worth the extra money.
