I have used this style for 5 years now and it is the most comfortable and user friendly suit out there. No zipper anywhere on the top so you can get in and out on your own. It takes a little patience to line up the zipper but it is so worth it. Recommend sizing up for leg length or getting a custom suit with a couple inches added in the legs.
Kokatat introduces the GORE-TEX Pro Idol dry suit with SwitchZip technology that separates completely at the waist giving paddlers the versatility of a dry suit and dry top in one garment. The full separation makes the Idol much easier to put on and take off than traditional dry suits. The suit features Kokatat's exclusive 3-layer Evolution GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric, used in combination with 330 Cordura GORE-TEX Pro Shell and is backed by Kokatat's limited lifetime warranty.
