I have been using the...

I have been using the Kokatat GFER (front entry, with booties, and relief zipper) dry suit for about 5 years, and it has been completely reliable, even with the abuse of climbing over trees and other obstacles while in the suit. The only problem I ever have is the zipper can get stiff, but a little zipper wax clears that right up. Last year I sent the dry suit to Kokatat to be checked for leaks/wear, and they found that the gore-tex was starting to de-laminate so they replaced the suit free of charge, quickly. It's really nice when a company stands behind their product like that, especially when it costs more then many boats. When they say lifetime guarantee, they mean it.

I own a Kokatat GMER dry suit. The GMER has the GoreTex booties and the relief zipper. I consider this to be the best equipment purchase I have ever made including the any of the 8 canoes I own. Want to extend your paddling season? Buy one of these dry suits. My cutoff temperature is 27 degrees F. Yes, it is a 10 of 10

I wore this drysuit daily on a week-long course in surf, currents and open coastal touring in July '04 in Clayoquot Sound and was always comfortable. In the fall of '03, I had taken an ACA leadership course, but getting wet and cold in a wetsuit limited my learning time. This suit enabled me to absorb instruction, not water, for full days -- didn't get hot, didn't get cold.
