Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between dry and semi-dry suits?

Both dry and semi-dry suits use waterproof material and closures at the neck, wrists, and ankles to seal out water. The difference is in the closures. Dry suits use latex gaskets at the neck and wrists and either latex gaskets or integrated socks at the ankles. Latex has incredible stretch and is highly effective at sealing out water. Semi-dry suits typically use a latex alternative such as neoprene at the neck and/or wrists. These can be more comfortable against your skin and still do an excellent job of minimizing water entry for more casual paddling activities.

Does a dry suit keep me warm?

Dry suits are not insulated. They play their part in keeping you warm by keeping you dry. You'll wear insulating layers underneath to regulate your body's warmth. This allows you to adjust your layers to match the weather conditions. Union suits/dry suit liners are the most popular choice for insulation, while others prefer to mix and match tops and bottoms for customized comfort.

Do I want a front or back entry zipper?

Front entry zippers are the original option for dry suits. The zipper typically runs diagonally from shoulder to waist across the front of the suit. Front entry dry suits are much easier to take on, off, and zip up. It’s also easier to visually check and ensure you are completely zipped up. This simple, proven system is the most popular option for paddlers. Rear entry zippers typically run across the top of the suit’s shoulder. Rear entry zippers minimize fabric bunching under your PFD, increasing mobility and comfort for many paddlers. However, they can be more challenging to take on and off yourself and are harder to check to ensure the zipper is completely closed visually.

Why are the latex gaskets on my dry suit so tight?

Latex gaskets are designed to fit very snugly against your skin to prevent water from entering the suit. They will stretch and form your body with use. You can speed up the process by gently stretching the gasket over an item slightly larger than your neck or wrists for 12-24 hours. Also, keep your gaskets lubricated with 303 Protectant to improve flexibility and comfort and extend their life.

Stay Warm & Dry With A Dry Suit for Kayaking, Paddling, and Rafting

You love paddling, the water, the great outdoors - but do you love being soaking wet and freezing? Chances are, you’d prefer to stay warm and dry while doing what you love - so you can’t leave today without grabbing a kayak drysuit for the next time you’re paddling in aggressive water or cold temperatures!

These differ a bit from kayak wetsuits (which are essential in their regard) in that kayak drysuits are more loose-fitting, comfortable, and easy to get in and out of. Plus, these keep your kayak clothing dry, like layering shirts and layering pants, without providing too much insulation that has you sweating before you even start paddling!

Here at Outdoorplay, you’ll find the best dry suit collection online - curated by us and featuring the top brands in the industry.
