You've devoted considerable resources to a 20-day Antarctic kayaking extravaganza, so why would you buy sub-standard dry suit and suffer every day on the water' Instead, invest in your comfort with the Kokatat Women's Gore-Tex Meridian Dry Suit. Three-layer Gore-Tex Pro guarantees you'll be protected from water, both inside and out. The front-zip entry design makes it easier to dress yourself, and the reinforced knees will hold up to crawling on the rocks for an up-close view of penguins. Evolution nylon makes the body of this dry suit rugged tough and surprisingly supple. Three-layer Gore-Tex Pro laminate lies in wait to ward off ocean spray and take your paddle sweat away for an entirely dry experience. Both the neck and cuffs have latex gaskets as extra water protection; the neck (but not the cuffs) can be trimmed for a comfortable custom fit. Neoprene wrist over-cuffs protect the gaskets and offer just a bit of wrist warmth. Gore-Tex socks slip inside your boat shoes to protect your tootsies from the frigid arctic water. Hook-and-loop neoprene over-cuffs at the ankles add an extra element of water protection by creating a seal between your boot and the suit. The dual-adjustable overskirt with hook-and-loop compatible neoprene works with your spray skirt to minimize the amount of water than ends up in the cockpit. Cordura reinforces the knees and seat so sitting on coarse sand for a picnic won't compromise the integrity of this dry suit. Nature will call when you're out enjoying it, and the drop seat makes it easy to take care of business.
