For more than 40 years we have developed design patterns and manufacturing techniques that ensure that each suit we sell is completely dry. In fact, we perform an individual water test on every suit we make.\\n\\nIf we can\\u2019t fit you into one of our stock sizes, why not get a dry suit made to order. On the other hand, explore your individuality. Choose your own unique color combination and select from a long list of additional options and you\\u2019ll end up with a suit that fits like a glove (that\\u2019s confusing) and a look that will be the envy of your paddling partners.\\n\\nKokatat will hand build a dry suit from the measurements and information provided by our customer. We recommend that all measurements be performed by an authorized and trained Kokatat retailer. Be sure to follow the measuring instructions below carefully. Kokatat is not responsible for the fit of a dry suit if the information provided is incorrect or incomplete. Measure twice, cut once.\\n\\n#### DRY SUIT MEASURING INSTRUCTIONS\\n\\nTips:\\n\\n* Do not measure yourself. Measurements should be performed by an authorized and trained Kokatat retailer. Failing that, someone you trust to get in close with a cloth measuring tape.\\n* Just relax! Look forward and stand up straight with your feet about 12 inches apart.\\n* Don\\u2019t move around and look straight ahead. Stop looking at your measuring partner or the floor. Remember, relax!\\n* Take measurements in street clothes and bare feet, preferably washed.\\n* DO NOT make allowances for insulation layers under the suit. Kokatat patterns are designed to allow for adequate layering under dry suits.\\n* All circumferences should be taken at the widest point. If you happen to be measuring your wife or mother-in-law, you may want to refer to this as\\u2026 oh, forget it.\\n* Again\\u2026 measure twice, cut once.\\n\\n**The following measurements should be taken on the person\\u2019s front side:**\\n\\n**CHEST:**Take this measurement at the widest point. This is usually at the nipple area. Do not hold your breath, just relax. If the person is muscular, take a second measurement at the armpit area, across the upper chest. Use the larger of the two measurements.\\n\\n**WAIST**: Measure just above your hip bone where your body bends when bending sideways.\\n\\n**HIPS**: Take this measurement from the side to ensure the correct placement of the tape. Place the tape around the hips and across the widest point of the buttocks. This might be a good time to come up with a descriptive word other than \\u201cwidest\\u201d. Make sure that all pockets are empty.\\n\\n**INSEAM**: This is also referred to as the \\u201ccrotch to ankle bone\\u201d measurement for those very secure individuals. Have the person stand with legs straight and feet about 12\\u201d apart. Have them hold their hand to the side, with palm facing out. Place the end of the measuring tape between their first two fingers. Ask them to place the hand with the tape in their crotch area, snug up against the body. Just relax! Stretch the tape straight down your ankle bone. Ask the person to look straight ahead, turn their head to the right and cough.\\n\\n**GIRTH**: This measurement is for the entire torso length. Place the tape at the base of the neck on top of the shoulder. Run the tape down the front, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point on the shoulder.\\n\\nThis final measurement should be taken on the backside:\\n\\n**SPINE TO WRIST**: Hold arm directly out to the side, parallel to the floor, palm down. Bend the elbow forward, stop hand in front of nose. Place the tape at the base of the neck, starting at the spine. Run tape along the arm, turn at the elbow, measuring to the wrist bone.\\n\\n#### SIZING NOTES\\n\\nKokatat garments are sized with ample room for ventilation and to be comfortable over an insulating layer. For all stock product please refer to the stock sizes in the sizing chart.\\n\\nIf you don\\u2019t fit into the stock sizes, Kokatat can add and subtract length in the sleeves and arms, and add length to the torso of stock sizes. See [our custom suit builder](https:\\\/\\\/\\\/custom) for more details.\"}}],\"relatedProducts\":{\"selected_products\":[\"2745\",\"2681\",\"2686\",\"2756\"]},\"seoTitle\":\"Seawester\",\"seoMetaDescription\":\"This comfortable and floatable kayak hat keeps the sun or rain at bay.\",\"relatedProductv2\":[\"INUHAB\",\"PJUPPJ\",\"INUWPT\"]}"

    seawester hat

    Posted by Jill Crosbie on Aug 30th 2020

    love this hat, got it to paddle off the coast of Maine. I'm 5' 4" so the only adjustment I had to make with the hat was to curl up the back a bit as it was just long enough down my back to hit my PFD, but that adjustment didn't cause any issues. The hat stayed on my head, the brim was stiff enough to stay put even in 20 to 25 mph gusts of wind and it kept the sun off my face and neck. It is so light weight I didn't even feel like I was wearing a hat, yet it is rugged enough to do the job.
