Brief Description

Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex®: Paddling Suit is similar to the Tropos SuperNova Paddling Suit except it's made of Gore-Tex. And the Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit is even more breathable, comfortable, and durable than the Tropos SuperNova suit.

The Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit would be a drysuit except the neck is a "Neo. Cinch Collar". This neck won't seal as well as a dry suit latex neck gasket, but the neoprene neck is a lot more comfortable than a rubber neck gasket. As long as you aren't practicing multiple rolls in a kayak or going for a long swim off shore, the neck on the Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit may be good enough for your paddling needs (rec kayaking, canoeing rivers, frostbite sailing, etc.). In other words, you will get several spoons full of water down the neck each time your head and/or neck go under water which is why this is a semi-dry paddling suit, but from the neck down the Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit is the same as a dry suit.

Detailed Description

The Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit is made of waterproof/breathable 3-layer Gore-Tex Performance Shell fabric. This Gore-Tex is like that used for high-end mountain rain gear, but it is lighter weight than the Gore-Tex Evolution fabric Kokatat builds the rest of their Gore-Tex dry suits from. The Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit comes in Men's and Women's styles, and we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Men's Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit .

The Men's Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex Paddling Suit comes standard with: reflective tape on sleeves, latex wrist gaskets with adjustable neoprene over-cuffs at the wrists and ankles (that cover the top of your booties to keep gravel out), waterproof breathable dry-socks made of 3-layer Gore-Tex fabric, a men's Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), and a front entry water-sports 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).

For kayak fishermen and others who paddle hard in wide kayaks and/or those who know they tend to sweat more than most, we recommend this suit over the Kokatat Tropos Super Nova Paddling Suit or the Angler Suit because you'll be less sweaty in the Gore-Tex suit.

Specs

Made of waterproof/breathable 3-layer Gore-Tex Performance Shell fabric with Cordura® reinforcement patches on the knees and seat.

No custom options or sizing alterations are available on this model suit.
