Description

Kokatat's Men's GoreTex Whirlpool Bibs are like chest waders plus a tunnel piece around the chest that can be folded together with the inner tunnel on a dry top to make a "two-piece dry suit". The Whirlpool bibs come standard with a Relief Zipper and GoreTex Dry Socks similar to most of Kokatat's one-piece men's dry suits. Women's bibs are available by special order (call us) with Drop Seat Zipper or Front Relief Zipper.

Two piece dry suits are harder and slower to get into (you have to fold the two pieces together behind your back etc.), they always leak (How badly they leak will depend on how well you fold the halves together, so it will vary from one day to the next.), and you end up with a lot of extra bulk around your middle. So about the only reason to consider going the two-piece route is because you already own a $400 dry top, and so for the cost of these bibs you can almost have a dry suit. On the other hand, for a few hundred more you could own a real dry suit.

Specs
