Ron M.wrote a review of Kokatat Gore-Tex Tempest Pant - Men's on February 20, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've been through 3 pair of quality gore-tex guide-grade waders over as many decades, and the relative comfort of the Tempest dry pants can't be lauded enough in words - they wear like regular clothes. Compared to the typical neoprene stocking foot, the gore-tex feet are easy to get on and off, with base layer or insulating socks, easily fit inside the narrow shoes that, in turn, easily fit inside a kayak footwell. The XL fit is generous for my 34" inseam and size 12 foot. There's room inside for base + insulation layers, but the fit is still trim, functional and flexible - and very comfortable for sitting. The built-in gaitors keep mud and sand out, and the velcro closures on gaitors and waist function perfectly.
On a February Texas-coast flats paddle, starting off in the 60-degree foggy calm, they didn't seem necessary and stayed in my dry bag. After the wind came up to the day's norm, and a bit of wading, moderate exposure, I found a place on the hard pack beach I could sit and put them on over my wet nylon pants and scuba socks. Spent the day in comfort, while the forecast sun never broke through - we remained socked in and a light mist all day. The beauty of goretex - finished and stowing gear early afternoon, I was completely dry inside, in spite of the cool and 100% humidity.
