Brief Description

Kokatat Tropos SuperNova Paddling Suit (TSN) would be a drysuit except the neck of the Tropos Super Nova suit is a neoprene "Adjustable Punch-Through" (APT) collar. The APT neck on the Kokatat Tropos SuperNova Paddling suit doesn't seal as well as a drysuit with a latex neck gasket, but the APT neck is a lot more comfortable than a rubber neck gasket. As long as you aren't practicing multiple rolls in a kayak or going for a long swim off shore, the APT neck on the SuperNova suit may be good enough for your paddling needs (rec kayaking, river canoeing, frostbite sailing, etc.). In other words, you will get several spoons full of water down the neck each time your head and/or neck go under water, but from the neck down the SuperNova Paddling Suit is the same as a dry suit.

Detailed Description

The Kokatat Tropos SuperNova Paddling Suit is made of a waterproof/breathable 2-layer fabric called "Tropos". The SuperNova semi drysuit comes in Men's and Women's styles, and we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Men's Tropos SuperNova semi-dry Paddling Suit.

The Men's Kokatat Tropos SuperNova Paddling Suit comes standard with latex wrist gaskets with adjustable neoprene over-cuffs at the wrists and ankles (that cover the top of your booties to keep gravel out), waterproof breathable Dry-Socks made of 3-layer Tropos T3 fabric, a men's Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), and a front entry water-sports 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).

For fishermen and others who may be spending more time standing in the water than a recreational paddler and/or those who will be putting a lot of wear on their suit, we recommend the Kokatat Tropos Super Nova Angler Paddling Suit which is a heavier-duty version of this suit or the Kokatat Light Weight Gore-Tex® Paddling Suit. For the Angler Paddling Suit, Kokatat uses 3-layer Tropos T3 fabric for the whole suit. On the standard Tropos SuperNova suit, only the socks are 3-layer Tropos, and the rest is 2-layer Tropos fabric. The Tropos SuperNova Angler Paddling Suit also has more coverage of the Cordura® reinforcement patches.


Made of waterproof/breathable 2-layer Tropos fabric with Cordura reinforcement patches on the knees, seat, and elbows, and plastic water sports zippers -- waterproof for surface water-sports. No custom options or sizing alterations are available on this model suit. The SuperNova suit comes with two year limited warranty.
