Searching for a Kokatat dry suit. I don’t think I need custom, size charts suggest I can get by with off-the-shelf assuming I can find one! The website says they are not accepting new orders. My local dealers are REIs and they have sent the water sports gear back to wherever gear goes to live in the winter. It looks like I can order online.
Are there any red flags, concerns with ordering a dry suit on line? Assuming the suit is new and it hasn’t been returned because someone damaged it (and that hasn’t been my experience with REI)……anything else I should be aware of?
Companion Question and I think I know the answer from doing some reading: Reed Chillcheater > not really a dry suit, right? Every review I’ve read indicates (a) there is water intrusion at the cuffs and neck because it’s not latex, (b) seam taping is prone to separating and (c) it doesn’t breathe and can take a while to dry out if you work up a sweat. In summary, not really made for immersion.
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving in advance.
