Womens Tropos Super Nova Kayak Dry Suit
|Kokatat Women's Tropos Super Nova Kayak Semi Drysuit - Get one-piece splash & spray protection with far more comfort in the Kokatat women's Tropos Super Nova semi-dry suit. Designed for touring paddlers and rafters, the Super Nova dry will keep you comfortable with waterproof and breathable 2-layer Tropos fabric. A customized urethane coating is applied to the nylon outer shell, preventing water from entering while allowing moisture vapor to escape. The neoprene Adjustable Punch-Through neck gasket minimizes water entering the suit, and is much more comfortable than traditional latex gaskets. Latex wrist gaskets and integrated Tropos socks with adjustable neoprene overcuffs seal out water, keeping you warm and dry. The waterproof zipper runs diagonally across the chest, making it easy to take on and off. A zippered drop seat gives you easy relief access when nature calls. The competition cut offers the maximum range of motion available and the reinforced seat and knee patches add longevity to the suit. Staying dry is the first step to staying warm, and the Kokatat women's Tropos Super Nova semi-dry suit is perfect for the job.
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.
Great suit for a great price. I use this suit from early spring until mid summer as the water warms up. A warm base layer in cold water provides plenty of warmth and a thin wicking rash guard bodysuit when it gets warmer will keep you cool and pull moisture away from your skin so that you don't feel clammy. The non-latex punch through neoprene neck gasket stays fairly dry. It only allows a drop or two of water in if you're completey submerged or bouncing around in the waves but is so much more comfortable than latex gasket necks!
This paddling semi-dry suit has met all our expectations. The neoprene neck seal is far more comfortable than the usual latex gasket, and we have experienced no more than a few spoonfuls of water entering during swims. The relief zipper/dropseat and the booties are excellent features. The breathable fabric works - I've paddled on 25 degree C days with no sweating (did have to have a cool-off dip). Complaints - about the only one I have is the main zipper placement - it tucks so far back over the shoulder that I have great difficulty reaching it to start closing the suit. I'd prefer it a little further closer to the front and extending further down the front of the suit. The only other question is that of durability - Kokatat doesn't offer their lifetime warranty on the SuperNova - we'll see how it holds up over the years. The SN suits are a good alternative for paddlers who need thermal protection but can't/won't pay the price for the full Goretex suits.
