Here's what other sites are saying:
Charge the river hard enough and eventually you're going to get flushed from your boat and go for a swim. As an alternative to a full dry suit, a bib like the Kokatat Gore-Tex WhirlPool Dry Pant will help you stay dry and protected from the river's chilling touch. Kokatat's engineers built this bib using three-layer waterproof breathable Gore-Tex, a material that not only guarantees that you'll stay dry but also guarantees your comfort by allowing sweaty moisture to escape from within. Adjustable suspenders, a front relief zipper, and built-in Gore-Tex booties further improve your comfort so you can stay out on the river all day. Look toward the Gore-Tex Whirlpool Dry if you want more water protection than just a pant and you want to choose your own drytop rather than being locked into a one-piece design.
