The Kayak Academy Women's K.A. Label Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry Dry Suit is our custom-made Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry Dry Suit that comes with a Women's FUD Front Relief Zipper (instead of drop seat) and Dry Socks. Its features are similar to our popular Kokatat K.A. Label Legacy-WR but thanks to Kokatat's waterproof/breathable 3-layer Hydrus 3.0 fabric, it's a much lower price. From our private testing of waterproof/breathable dry suits, we can say that Kokatat's Hydrus 3.0 dry suits are second only to their own Gore-Tex® drysuits.
The KA Label Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry Dry Suit comes standard with a latex neck gasket, wrist gaskets with adjustable neoprene over cuffs, waterproof - breathable Hydrus 3.0 Dry Socks with neoprene ankle cuffs that keep gravel out of your booties, and a front entry zipper that runs diagonally across the chest of the suit making it easy to get in and out of. This is a great dry suit 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 and durable, but the Hydrus 3.0 is right up there with the best of the rest in terms of breathability and durability. The Goretex® suits also have a neoprene collar over the neck gasket which this Hydrus suit does not have. This collar adds a bit of warmth and keeps some of the sun's UV rays off the latex gasket which helps it last longer. So if you sweat more than most or you are going to wear your dry suit once or twice a week for most of the year, you'll come out ahead by starting with a Gore-Tex® suit, but for the average paddler, the KA Label Swift Entry-WR is darn good.
K.A. Label dry suits are specially made for us by Kokatat and are only available at the Kayak Academy. Our K.A. Label dry suits come with features that are not otherwise included on a standard model Swift Entry Dry Suit.
