Cold-weather water sports just got more fun.
Whatever your cold-weather water adventures entail, the EZ Drysuit from Stohlquist is up to the task at hand. This drysuit features 4-layer Twin Sensor membrane that is designed to fight off water efficiently, to create a great all-around drysuit. The outer layer of nylon is treated with a DWR to help repel water, then another layer is given a polyurethane coating for even more moisture-management. On the inside is a nylon tricot liner that is soft and comfortable against your skin, preventing any discomfort or chafing throughout the day.
Neoprene neck and wrist gaskets, bolstered by Duraseal latex, help to create a very effective seal against any intruding liquids. To make getting in and out of this beast is simple, Stohlquist used its MasterSeal cross-chest entry that is not only easy to operate, but makes absolutely sure that no errant water gets in.
When things get a bit hairy on your latest adventure, you can rely on the articulated, armored knees to help you move freely and to protect you from what may come. Since not all adventures take place in the light of day, Stohlquist added reflective accents to help keep you safe wherever your adventures take you. Fabric drysocks add another level of comfort to an already fantastic suit.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This suit was the game changer for me and my winter water based activities... From rafting the Grand Canyon, kayaking around local rivers, to winter canyoneering, this suit has been tried and tested. Wasnt thrilled with the neck gasket, it began to show signs of cracking after using it for a couple weeks straight and some minor stitching was noticed after putting it through the ringer but all in all a great option and i have absolutely loved the design and warmth/comfort it has provided.
Remember to use the lube on the zippers! Don't let it swamp you.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fits as described. Kept me warm and dry in 40 degree water with 45 degree air temp. It's as good as many of my friend's suits that cost twice as much.
I wonder if the small mens would be suitable for a woman 5'7" and 135 pounds. I don't see sizing in the tech specs and wonder if the neck would leak if it wasn't just right.
What is the weight of the EZ (average)? Men's medium ideally.
This suit in a medium is going to weigh 2.76 lbs.
