Brief Description

The Kokatat Hydrus 3L Meridian Dry Suit (river kayaking drysuit) w/ Relief Zipper and Hydrus 3L Dry Socks has features similar to Kokatat's best river kayaking dry suit, the GMER, but at a low price thanks to Kokatat's waterproof / breathable 3-layer Hydrus fabric. From our private testing of waterproof/breathable dry suits, Kokatat's Hydrus 3-layer dry suits are second only to Kokatat's own Gore-Tex® dry suits. Yet this Hydrus 3L drysuit is less expensive than similar featured suits by other brands! The Hydrus 3L Meridian dry suit comes in Men's and Women's styles, and we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Men's Hydrus 3L Meridian dry suit.

Detailed Description

The defining features of all versions of Kokatat's Meridian dry suits are an "overskirt" (to sandwich your spray-skirt like the double tunnel on a dry-top) to keep your kayak drier while rolling or paddling in waves, a front entry 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), and a flap that covers the front entry zipper. The men's Hydrus Meridian drysuit comes standard with: a Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), latex neck and wrist gaskets with "punch-through" neoprene gasket protectors, Hydrus 3L breathable 3-layer Dry Socks with neoprene ankle cuffs with adjustable "hook & loop" tab closures to keep gravel out of your booties, and a self-draining, zippered chest pocket with a key lanyard loop inside.

The punch-through neck and wrist covers create a double seal while eliminating any scratchy/sticky Velcro® around your neck and wrists.

Note: Although the Kokatat Hydrus 3L Meridian dry suit was primarily designed for river kayaking, some sea kayakers also choose it because they also want the over-skirt feature and/or don't want any Velcro on the collar or wrists.


The Kokatat Hydrus 3L Meridian is made of waterproof/breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3L fabric with Cordura® reinforcement patches on the knees and seat and plastic water sports zippers -- waterproof for surface watersports (i.e. swimming and paddling but not SCUBA diving). Hydrus 3L Meridian drysuits come with a lifetime limited warranty for the original owner.
