Brief Description

Kokatat Women's Gore-Tex Lightweight Paddling Suit has a soft neoprene neck like the Women's Tropos SuperNova Paddling Suit, but it's made of Gore-Tex® so the Women's Gore-Tex® Lightweight Paddling Suit will be even more breathable, more comfortable, and more durable than the SuperNova suit.

The Kokatat Gore-Tex® Lightweight Paddling Suit would be a drysuit except the neck is a "Neo Cinch Collar". This neck won't seal as well as a true dry suit latex neck gasket, but the neoprene 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 neck on the Kokatat Lightweight Paddling Suit may be good enough for your paddling needs (rec kayaking, canoeing rivers, frostbite sailing, etc.). In other words, expect to get several spoons full of water down the neck each time your head and/or neck go under water which is why this is called a "paddling suit" rather than a dry suit, but from the neck down the Kokatat Gore-Tex® Lightweight Paddling Suit is the same as a dry suit.

Detailed Description

The Kokatat Women's Lightweight Paddling Suit is made of waterproof/breathable 3-layer Gore-Tex® Performance Shell fabric. This Gore-Tex® is like that used for high-end mountaineering rain gear, but it is lighter weight than the Gore-Tex® fabric Kokatat builds the rest of their Gore-Tex® dry suits from. The Kokatat Lightweight Paddling Suit comes in Men's and Women's styles, and we have separate descriptions for each. This page is about the Women's Gore-Tex® Lightweight Paddling Suit.

The Women's Kokatat Lightweight Paddling Suit comes standard with: reflective tape on sleeves, latex wrist gaskets with adjustable neoprene over-cuffs at the wrists and ankles (ankle over-cuffs cover the top of your booties to keep gravel out), waterproof-breathable dry-socks made of 3-layer Gore-Tex® fabric, a Women's Drop-Seat 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).

If paddling a wide Sit-On-Top fishing kayak or a stable rec kayak, you'll likely be working harder than if you were in a sea kayak, so you know you'll tend to sweat more. For these applications we recommend the GoreTex® Lightweight Paddling Suit over the Kokatat Tropos Super Nova Paddling Suit or any other suit because you'll be less sweaty in the Gore-Tex® paddling suit.
