Brief Description

Kokatat Hydrus 3L Swift Entry -R dry suit has features similar to the popular Kokatat GFER but at a much lower price thanks to Kokatat's waterproof/breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3L fabric. Like the Kokatat GFER, the H3LSE-R has a men's Relief Zipper and waterproof/breathable fabric Dry-Socks. This dry suit comes in Men's and Women's styles, and we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Men's H3LSER

Other than the Dry Socks and Relief Zipper features, this drysuit is the same as the Kokatat Hydrus 3L Swift Entry Dry Suit.

Detailed Description

The H3LSE-R dry suit is good for sea kayaking, rafting, canoeing, and fishing. The main differences between this suit and a Kokatat Gore-Tex® drysuit are in the rate of "breathability" (Gore-Tex® dry suits are still the most breathable, but the Hydrus 3L fabric is right up there with the best of the rest and the quality of Kokatat's US manufacturing of dry suits makes the H3LSE-R drysuits second only to Kokatat's Gore-Tex® drysuits) and the durability (again nothing else compares to a Kokatat Gore-Tex® dry suit for waterproof/breathable durability), and the zippers (Hydrus 3L Suits have plastic watersports zippers, while the Gore-Tex® suits use a stronger metal zipper that is waterproof to higher pressure). The Gore-Tex® suits also have a neoprene collar over the neck gasket which the H3LSE-R suits do not have. The collar adds a bit of warmth and keeps some of the sun's UV rays off the latex neck gasket which helps it last longer. So if you sweat more than most people or are an active paddler who is going to wear your dry suit once or twice a week most of the year, you'll come out ahead by starting with a Gore-Tex® dry suit, but for the average paddler the Hydrus 3L SE-R suit is darn good, and it's the next best thing to a Kokatat GFER drysuit.


Made of waterproof/breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3L fabric with Cordura® reinforcement patches on the knees and seat, and plastic watersports zippers -- waterproof for surface watersports. Hydrus 3 Layaer drysuits come with a lifetime limited warranty for the original owner.
