Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Meridian River Kayaking Dry Suit - CLOSE-OUT SALE
For 2023 Storm Blue replaces the Electric Blue color and there are slight changes to the shape of the legs. All 2023 suits are marked as CLOSE OUT and discounted. Get em' while you can.
The Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Meridian Dry Suit (river kayaking drysuit) w/ Relief Zipper and fabric Dry Socks has features similar to Kokatat's best river kayaking dry suit, the GoreTex Pro Meridian, but at a lower price thanks to Kokatat's waterproof / breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3.0 fabric. From our private testing of waterproof/breathable dry suits, Kokatat's Hydrus 3.0 dry suits are second only to Kokatat's own Gore-Tex® dry suits.
Note: we stock Meridian suits with custom sized dry-socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large socks on an XL size suit. These custom suits are the same price as the standard suits and you can order them here by selecting the sock size from the menu.
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 3.0 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, 3-layer Hydrus 3.0 breathable 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.
Kokatat has four sizes of dry-socks, but they use the Medium size sock (for shoe size 9 - 11) on all but their Small and XXL size suits. We find a lot of men who wear an XL sized suit need the Large sock (for shoe size 11.5 to 15). So on our best selling dry suits like the Meridian we stock suits with custom sized socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large dry-socks on an XL size suit. These custom suits are the same price as the standard suits and you can order them here by selecting the sock size from the menu. Another reason to buy your dry suit from K.A.
