Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry Dry Suit w/ Relief Zipper & Dry Socks - 2022 CLOSE-OUT SALE
2023 models have a neoprene collar over the latex neck gasket and Storm Blue replaces the Electric Blue color. All our 2022 Swift Entry suits are on CLOSE OUT sale and discounted. Get em' while you can.
Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry dry suit w/ Relief Zipper and Dry Socks has features similar to the popular Kokatat GoreTex Legacy but at a much lower price thanks to Kokatat's waterproof/breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3.0 fabric.
Note: we stock Swift Entry suits with custom sized socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large dry-socks on Large and XL size suits. 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 Swift Entry 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 Three.Zero fabric is right up there with the best of the rest) and the durability (again nothing else compares to a Kokatat Gore-Tex® dry suit for waterproof/breathable durability). The Gore-Tex® suits also have a neoprene collar over the neck gasket which the Swift Entry 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 the neck gasket 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 3.0 Swift Entry dry suit is darn good.
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 a size Large suit and most who wear a size XL need the Large sock (for shoe size 11.5 to 15). So on our best selling dry suits like the Swift Entry suit we stock them with custom sized socks so you can have a choice of Medium or Large dry-socks on Large and XL size suits. 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.
