I’m back!! About 8 Months ago I suffered a torn ligament and tendon on my elbow that extended all the way across my whole top forearm all the way to one of my fingers. I could do no kayaking for those whole 8 Months. After going to a rehabilitation clinic they have me all fixed up now. Anyway I am Kayaking again at 100% and it feels great.
I have decided that I will start saving up for a nice Dry Suit for when the cold weather arrives…yes I know I long ways away but I adore Cold Weather God do I love it so much…I plan on doing more Kayaking during the Winter actually especially being in Louisiana where bugs and alligators are everywhere while Kayaking…Winter time they are all gone and it is much more peaceful…not to mention to me the cold air feel so much better…without a decent Dry suit I know I will be suffering from the cold weather though especially when we are down in the 30’s lol. By the time Winter is here I will definitely have enough funds to buy all the equipment I will need…this is why I am starting early.
I have been looking around and am looking to spend around $600.00 and here is a couple that I have ben looking at: Kokatat Hydrus 3 Meridian Dry Suit…and also a Typhoon Multisport 4 Four Latex Seal Drysuit here is the links:
Also it would probably be wise to have a layer underneath especially for those freezing days out Kayaking such as something like this:
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated…I would really prefer a one piece Drysuit as it would be more simple for myself and I do not mind wearing a decent under liner as well.
Again the Kayak bug is back. I have gone through so much depression not being able to Kayak as it kind of changed my life but hey having a forearm with a tendon and ligament torn is kinda hard to do…but again I am 100% healed.
I am about 5’11" 215 pounds and yes I will be doing plenty of Kayaking this Summer but even more so during my favorite time of the year…Winter!!
Again thank you for any advice on dry suits.
