This Kokatat Men's Retro Icon Dry Suit (GORE-TEX Pro) is a limited edition collection made with remnant GORE-TEX Pro fabric colors. Issues with supply chain and dedication to sustainable practices brought these limited suits to market. Built in the Arcata, CA factory and made to last just like the original Kokatat Icon Dry Suit designed with the help of Dane and EJ Jackson!
Three layers of GORE-TEX Pro membrane under 330 Cordura GORE-TEX fabric on high-wear areas gives you top-of-industry waterproofing in both the suit and the attached drysocks, and punch-through overcuffs keep the wear and tear on your gaskets to a minimum. Modern lines and slim fit also makes this suit feel less baggy in the water so you can focus on swimming to safety or chasing down your boat.

Choosing between a rear-entry and front entry drysuit can be challenging, as there are pros and cons to both entry points. A rear-entry zipper can be more challenging to zip up by yourself and usually requires your partner to give you a hand. The upside to a zipper located at the top of the suit is that its less likely to leak over time, as it is in an area of the suit that moves and flexes less than a zipper that is diagonal across your chest. The zipper also does not cross underneath the tunnel over-skirt, keeping water out of your cockpit a bit more effectively.
