Made with Gore-Tex Pro shell and maintaining Kokatat's time-tested design, the Women's Gore-Tex Front Entry Drysuit is guaranteed to keep you dry during all your whitewater endeavors. The fully seam taped Gore-Tex Pro shell effectively walls out moisture, while latex gaskets at the neck and wrists prevent any amount of moisture from seeping in.
Hook and loop adjustability at the collar and cuffs let you dial in the perfect fit for complete comfort out on the water, while Kokatat's proprietary Optiseal dropseat relief zipper makes answering nature's call after you're suited up as easy as possible. Getting into the suit is easy through the front entry zipper, and it is also secured with Kokatat's water-tight Optiseal zipper. Cordura reinforced knees and seat keep the suit intact where it comes in contact with your kayak. When venturing into cold waters, this suit is designed to integrate comfortably with Kokatat's insulation system, ensuring that you stay warm and dry whether you're sea kayaking or running swollen rivers in the spring.

Would be great but....
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I am giving this drysuit three stars because I wore it for a season of college sailing and it did its job...for a little while at least. After the season had ended, I sent the product back to the company because it was not keeping me dry. One of the reasons why I bought this suit was because so many people raved about it and how it lasts for so long. I was hesitant at first because of the price since there are others on the market that will do the job effectively. After shipping it back to the company, they told me that the leaks in my suit were not covered under their warranty because they were from wear and tear. It seems odd to me that I would have an issue after only about a month of using this suit, almost every day, while others have used their's (with the same wear and tear) for many more years and have not had any issues. If I have to do this after every season, I would have just been better off getting a cheaper suit that does the same job and just replaced it when I started having issues a few years after I bought the first suit. I am disappointed in what is supposed to be a good product and the warranty that the company has. Other than my issues with the warranty, I would recommend this product to others in hopes that they would not have the same issues that I experienced.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I am incredibly happy with this dry suit after its first test run packrafting this weekend. It is easy to get into and extremely comfortable whilst paddling. Other dry suits I have worn were difficult to get into andcumbersome, yet this suit is efficient, and as sleek as a dry suit can be.
