2023 Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 SuperNova Semi-Dry Suit w/Soft Neck
As of the 2023 model, Kokatat's SuperNova Semi Dry Suit is made of the same waterproof/breathable Hydrus 3.0 fabric as all of Kokatat's Hydrus dry suits - the only difference between the SuperNova suit and the other Hydrus dry suits is the Neo Cinch Collar instead of a latex neck gasket.
The Kokatat SuperNova Semi-Dry Suit has similar features as the Swift Entry dry suit except that it has the "Neo Cinch Collar", instead of a neoprene neck gasket. The Neo Cinch Collar on the SuperNova Paddling suit doesn't seal as well as a latex neck gasket, but it's more comfortable to wear than the latex neck gasket. As long as you aren't practicing multiple rolls in a kayak or going for a long swim off shore, the neoprene neck on the SuperNova suit may be good enough for your paddling needs (rec kayaking, canoeing, 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, but from the neck down the SuperNova Suit is the same as a dry suit.
The Kokatat SuperNova Semi Dry Suit is made of a 3 layer waterproof/breathable fabric called Hydrus 3.0. The men's suit comes standard with latex wrist gaskets, 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 the Hydrus 3.0 fabric, a men's Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), and a front entry water-sports nylon 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 fishermen and others who may be spending more time standing in the water than a recreational paddler and/or those who will be putting a lot of wear on their suit, we recommend the Kokatat Hyrdus 3.0 Super Nova Angler Paddling Suit or GoreTex Super Nova Angler Suit, both of which are heavier-duty versions of this suit.
