Men's GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit
|Kokatat Men's GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit - The Men's GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit from Kokatat is built to stand the test of any paddling adventure. Exclusive “full immersion” GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric is tough as nails, yet quiet and comfortable. Latex neck and wrist gaskets, along with integrated GORE-TEX socks, keep you dry. The Competition Cut underarm maximizes range of motion. An Optiseal waterproof chest zipper makes the Meridian easy to take on and off. The double-tunnel waist mates with your sprayskirt for a completely dry system. A relief zipper gives you easy access when nature calls. Reinforced Cordura seat and knee patches add longevity. The Kokatat men's GORE-TEX Meridan drysuit sets the benchmark for dry comfort.
We highly recommend Kokatat's Power Dry Drysuit Liner with this purchase. It is designed to be worn directly under the dry suit and provides great thermal protection.
Kokatat Men's GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit:
I wore this drysuit daily on a week-long course in surf, currents and open coastal touring in July '04 in Clayoquot Sound and was always comfortable. In the fall of '03, I had taken an ACA leadership course, but getting wet and cold in a wetsuit limited my learning time. This suit enabled me to absorb instruction, not water, for full days -- didn't get hot, didn't get cold.
I am both an ACA Instructor and a BCU coach and spend lots of time in dry suits 3 seasons a year. Last year my suit was leaking and I sent it back to Kokatat to be checked out and repaired. Rather than fixing the problem they sent a NEW suit at no expense to me. This company really stands by their product.
My husband & I each have a Kokatat Meridian drysuit. They are now 6 yrs old. This was a major investment for us, but we felt it would provide for much safer paddling here in the NW, especially since we tend to paddle most often fall thru spring. This winter the neck gaskets finally gave out. We sent the suits back to Kokatat for new gaskets and to have them give the suits a water test (to see if they had any leaks). Kokatat discovered 4 pin holes in my suit, which they repaired. They determined that my husbands suit had de-laminated, so they replaced the suit with a new one! No questions asked. His suit was well cared for but had been extensively used. I would not hesitate to buy this drysuit again, if needed. I feel confident purchasing their products. Kokatat was so easy to deal with on the repair issues, they truly stand behind their work.
