I just got back my 10+ year old Kokatat Meridian back from the shop after some maintenance. I requested they redo the neck and wrist gaskets since I had done the last repair myself over the old gasket material and found it tricky to keep from making a mess. I also asked for a waterproof test.
When I got the suit back today I realized that they had also replaced the black cloth wrist cuffs and neck collar with new ones. My old ones were frayed a fair bit. This was not listed as part of the gasket repair that I requested so I presume it was done as a courtesy. I was not billed any extra.
All in all, a rather pleasing experience. Just another example of the many happy customers this company seems to make. I’m beginning to think that this suit will outlive its current owner.
