Apply Two Days of Rental to Your Drysuit Purchase
If you try a drysuit and love it so much that you buy one from us, you can apply up to two days of rental charge to your purchase. You must purchase a drysuit within two days of your rental to receive the credit.

A Kokatat Drysuit is a specialized piece of gear that does require some care during use. Learn more about rental drysuit care and use.
Insulation & Layering
With a drysuit your insulation comes not from the suit itself but from the layers you wear underneath. Think of the drysuit as a jacket — you always wear something under your jacket. Wear layers underneath that move moisture away from your skin and provide sufficient insulation.
Adjust your layering based on the air and water temperature and your activity level. Don't overdress — it's actually easy to overheat in a drysuit if you wear too much. Learn more about dressing and layering for paddling.
