Womens GORE TEX Meridian Kayak Dry Suit
|Kokatat Women's GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit - The women's GORE-TEX Meridian 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 women'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.
Sizing for Kokatat Women'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 own a Kokatat GMER dry suit. The GMER has the Gore-Tex booties and the relief zipper. I consider this to be the best equipment purchase I have ever made including the any of the 8 canoes I own. Want to extend your paddling season? Buy one of these dry suits. My cutoff temperature is 27 degrees F.
Wow! I just got my kokatat GMER drysuit. I playboated, cartwheeled, flipped, rode a hole upside down, and purposely wet exited to test the suit.... Totally dry! 100% dry. It was incredible. I used to use a semi dry top, and I was soaked every time I got off of the river. I never realized how much the low level cold was sapping my energy until I put on the dry suit. The fit is good and it is not too hard to get into. This is a great piece of gear. If you can muster up the cash, get it! I also look at it as a valuable piece of safety gear if you are running harder rivers with cold water. It will definitely help you out in a swim.
