Mayawrote a review of Kokatat Gore-Tex Front Entry Drysuit - Women's on July 7, 2017
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.
