A full featured Kokatat® dry suit is an ideal piece of equipment for your daily paddling needs, but its too bulky and heavy to carry on a long backcountry expedition. The Kokatat Hydrus 3.0 Swift Entry Dry Suit with relief zipper will keep you comfortably dry all day while meeting your lightweight needs. Hydrus 3.0 is their proprietary waterproof breathable three-layer fabric designed to keep paddlers completely dry in extreme conditions. The super tough nylon woven outer layer provides long lasting abrasion protection and features a durable water repellent (DWR) coating which repels water. The mid-layer utilizes a polyurethane micro-porous coating, allowing water vapor to transfer from the inner layer to the outer. The soft, knit polyester inner layer is engineered to help manage moisture, moving it from the inside out. The result is an exceptionally waterproof, breathable alternative that stays dry and comfortable. Hydrus 3.0 garments are backed by Kokatat’s limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
