The men's Kokatat Gore-Tex(R) Expedition dry suit lets you paddle where others can't. Tough nylon with Gore-Tex Pro Shell laminate is completely waterproof, extremely breathable and highly durable. Tough reinforcements at knees and seat boost abrasion resistance and durability; fabric patches on exterior of Gore-Tex are self-draining. Neoprene neck gasket seals with skin to help keep water out. Storable storm hood features adjustable drawstring and reflective tape; hood is designed to work with a paddling helmet. Adjustable neoprene band keeps suit snugly fitted around midsection using 2 large rip-and-stick tabs. Sleeve pockets on each arm store small essentials. Specialized sleeves enhance freedom of motion and won't restrict movement when paddling. Waterproof front-entry zipper eases dressing and relief zipper speeds pit stops. Adjustable leg and arm cuffs with rip-and-stick closures dial in the fit; arm cuffs have latex gaskets to enhance protection. Reflective highlights on front of suit enhance visibility in low light. Integrated Gore-Tex socks are more comfortable than latex gaskets and prevent water from entering suit at legs. Machine or hand wash in cold water with powdered detergent; do not bleach or dry clean; store dry, hanging or loosely folded.
You'll find the Kokatat Gore-Tex Expedition Dry Suit at the raging creeks of the Pacific Northwest, the deepest rivers in South America, and the coldest waters of Eastern Europe. This is Kokatat's toughest, most capable dry suit, and it was designed so you can drag it through portages, down rappels, and through brutal waters, and thrash it season after season after season. Gore-Tex Pro Shell material provides nigh-impenetrable protection from the freezing, soaking power of the water and it allows sweaty moisture to escape from within so you feel comfortable even if you're paddling hard. Cordura seat and knee patches ensure that high-wear areas will stand the test of time, and as an added touch, these patches are self draining. Kokatat went to great lengths to dial in the wrist and neck gaskets, secure the fit around the overskirt waist, and fully tape the seams of this suit for added water protection. Because this suit is a step up from the already formidable Kokatat Gore-Tex Meridian, you'll find that the Expedition includes a Gore-Tex hood, detailed with SOLAS reflective tape for safety's sake. As the pinnacle of Kokatat's dry suit engineering, this suit gives rafters, kaykers, and canoers a one-stop option for the highest level of dry protection in fast-moving water.
