    Dry Suits

    Policies For Used Dry Suits

    Unless the item's description below specifically says otherwise, the following drysuits are either from our rental fleet (which will have our logo on the right sleeve) or trade-in items. We typically sell our rental dry suits after they have had two seasons of use and we pressure test them for leaks and patch them before selling. Our rental drysuits are meticulously maintained and when necessary patched and tested to keep them from leaking. Throughout their use as rental suits we use our experience to replace the gaskets on them before they get worn enough to be likely to rip. So when you buy a used dry suit from us it will be ready to wear -- you won't have to replace the gaskets before using it as is generally the case with used dry suits found anywhere else (we know because we are often asked to repair or sell replacement gaskets for used drysuits bought on-line). There will almost always be some patches on a used drysuit that doesn't leak. Our philosophy is: patches are good -- leaks are bad. Most of the patching we do are on the inside of the suit where it doesn't show when wearing the suit, and most patches are mere squares of seam tape to cover pin-holes from thorns and keys etc., or shallow scratches. For used dry suits, all sales final after a two week grace period from the date of shipping (for you to confirm the fit and check that the condition of the suit matches its description). Manufacturer's warranty's are for the original owner, so used dry suits have no warranty. However, if you buy a used Kokatat drysuit from the Kayak Academy, K. A. will give the following warranty for one year from your purchase date: If there is a defect in the material or workmanship on the dry suit, K. A. will either fix the problem, replace the suit with a similar used drysuit that is in equal or better condition and without the defect, or if you prefer K. A. will credit what you paid for the used suit less $200.00 toward the purchase of a new drysuit from K. A. As with the original manufacturer's warranty, K. A.'s warranty does not cover gaskets or zippers or damage done by the customer. Warranty claims must be returned to K. A. at the owner's expense, and drysuit must be washed and dried first. Allow two weeks for warranty processing.

    Close-out SALE on New Drysuits In addition to the used dry suits above, click this link to see our dry suit sale page.

    Don't see your size here? Our retail store stocks the largest selection of new Kokatat Goretex drysuit sizes in the US and probably anywhere else. We actually stock XXL, King size, all Women's sizes (with and without drop seat zippers), and we even stock some custom sized suits (i.e. Women's L with arms and legs shortened and Men's L and XL with body lengthened). And if you need a custom size or options that we don't have in stock we are happy to order them for you and have more experience with those custom options/sizing than any other Kokatat dealer (or even Kokatat itself). I (George Gronseth) have personally been using dry suits for kayaking for over twenty-five years (times about 200 days/year of use that adds up to a lot of dry suit experience). And my staff and I have put well over a thousand of our students into dry suits and spent the day or week with them. And that doesn't even count the people we've fitted in suits for retail sales. We have the most experience and the best service, and when you're making an investment as big as a new dry suit you don't want to make a mistake. Call us if you need help ordering a new dry suit.

    Want to make a trade? We sometimes take used drysuits in on trade for credit toward a new suit. Call if you have a suit to trade in.
