Kokatat's Hydrus Meridian Drysuit
is a low cost option similar to the Kokatat GORE-TEX Meridian dry suit
. The Hydrus 3L Meridian incorporates all the features of the GORE-TEX version including Kokatat's superior construction techniques, integrated socks, a relief zipper and a lifetime warranty, but at a lower price. This new three-layer fabric is exceptionally waterproof and breathable thanks to its tough Nylon outer layer with a DWR finish, a proprietary polyurethane micro-porous coating, and a soft polyester inner layer to manage moisture.
The Kokotat Hydrus Meridian has an overskirt to layer with your spray skirt which assists with keeping water out of your boat. Two popular features, a relief zipper and Hydrus socks complete the suit. Female paddlers can order this suit with a drop seat zipper in place of the front relief zipper.
