We have been kayaking for almost 3 months, 1500 km and have been incredibly lucky with the weather. In the beginning we used our Kokatat drysuits all the time and they worked like a charm.
Now we’ve started to use our Kokatat Women’s Gore-Tex Full Zip Jacket and Men’s Gore-Tex Anorak , not a lot as the weather has been too good, but we have had a few days with heavy rain. On these days the jackets have been great. After many hours with full-on-rain, we were still dry. The straps around the wrist make sure that no water comes in that way – really nice on a Hobie kayak where the steering hand is soaked all the time in rough conditions.
The jacket is nice to take of and on when wet. The Anorak is a bit longer and makes sure that water doesn’t come in between the jacket and pants.
Both are great jackets that we will continue to enjoy wearing for many years to come.
