Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Meridian River Kayaking Dry Suit

Brief Description

The Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Meridian Dry Suit (river kayaking drysuit) w/ Relief Zipper and Hydrus 3.0 Dry Socks has features similar to Kokatat's best river kayaking dry suit, the GME-R, but at a low 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 PRO® dry suits.

Note: we stock XL 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.

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 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.
