Kokatat Legacy Drysuit, GORE TEX PRO Front Entry Dry Suit w/ Relief Zipper and Dry Socks


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 is replacing the Gore Front Entry drysuit and will be the new foundation of Kokatat's men's dry suit line. It's ideal for most sea kayakers and sailors, anyone 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.

All Kokatat Legacy drysuits 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 skin) and "hook & loop" wrist cuffs, and neoprene "hook & loop" ankle cuffs with 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 no problem! 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.


The Legacy is replacing the Gore Front Entry (GFE-R) dry suit and will be the new foundation of Kokatat's drysuit line. If you can't afford a Legacy, the next best drysuit is the Kokatat Hydrus 3L Swift Entry suit with Relief Zipper and 3 Layer Dry Socks (Hydrus 3L SER). It costs less than any other waterproof/breathable dry suit like it. One feature that can't be added to the Legacy model drysuit is an overskirt (for kayaking). An overskirt functions like the double tunnel on a dry top -- to help keep water from entering the cockpit of your kayak while doing rolls or paddling in waves (e.g. surf and river kayaking). If you aren't planning to use the suit for doing a lot of rolling in a kayak, then the Legacy is your best dry suit. For dry suits with overskirts, 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, but most sea kayakers don't find the overskirt worth the extra money. However, for white-water kayaking an overskirt is a necessity (unless you are using an inflatable or other open decked river kayak).
