Helpful for escaping a storm-ridden deserted island, too.
Even though you know the river's going to be cold this time of year, it doesn't hit you how bone-chillingly cold it really is until you get dumped and you're fighting to catch your breath. The Kokatat Gore-Tex Tempest Pants are designed to keep you warm, dry, and comfortable while paddling through frigid whitewater. Using highly breathable, waterproof three-layer Gore-Tex, these pants evacuate every drop of moisture from within while preventing the rushing, ice-cold flow of water from getting anywhere near your skin.
For serious paddlers who know they're inevitably taking a dip, these pants come with a wide, secure neoprene waistband to seal out water; the waistband also has the ability to pair with a double-skirted top. And whether you're dangling your feet off the edge of the kayak or stomping through chilly marshes, the Gore-Tex neoprene socks keep your toes from freezing off. Plus, Kokatat hooked this pair up with a relief zipper option in case all the rushing water around makes you realize how badly you have to go to the bathroom.
