Send your KOKATAT brand dry suit or dry top to K.A. for fast, professional neck gasket repair. K.A. will replace your over stretched, worn out, cracked, gummy or torn gaskets with factory original Kokatat brand gaskets. We'll give your other gaskets a free inspection and contact you if we feel it is time to replace them. Note Kokatat charges $79.00 for the same service.

  • 2009 and newer dry wear we install Kokatat Neck gaskets the same way Kokatat does with a heat activated adhesive system and the tools that Kokatat uses to weld the gaskets on (no extra layers of old gaskets and no worries about the gasket pulling off).
  • 2008 and older Kokatat dry suits and tops the original gaskets were glued on with Aquaseal, and the standard repair is to cut all but the glued portion of the old one off and glue the new gasket on top of the rim of the old one with Aquaseal (two layers of latex when done). For these items we generally use the standard repair unless the old gasket's flange is in too poor a condition in which case at our discretion we may remove it completely and Aquaseal to the fabric.
  • For gasket replacement on all other brands of watersport dry-wear, go back to "Dry Suits/Gaskets" and select the type of gasket service you need (neck, wrist, etc.) from the item that begins with "GASKET REPLACEMENT SERVICE Non-Kokatat....".

Note, 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 Medium Kokatat neck gasket, but a S neck gasket can be trimmed to make it fit like a "Medium". If you need a Neck gasket that is smaller than Kokatat's S neck or bigger than even a well trimmed Kokatat L neck, you can have us install our Universal gaskets on your Kokatat product (our Universal gaskets are available in both smaller and larger sizes than Kokatat offers), go back to "Dry Suits/Gaskets" and select the type of gasket service you need (i.e., "neck") from the item that begins with "GASKET REPLACEMENT SERVICE Non-Kokatat....".

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