The Kokatat Icon is an absolute innovation, with its performance and durability surpassing any other dry suit I have tried before.
At first I was dubious about the shoulder zip, having ever only had the girls leg zip before but I needn’t have worried (at all!) as the suit was super comfy and 100% dry! Paddling in it was easy as I had complete flexibility and control throughout. I particularly liked the zippered chest pocket (very convenient) and the Gore-Tex socks.
As a female whitewater paddler I found the suit to be very lightweight, further adding to the key selling points of the product as time and time again I have found gear to be heavy and constricting.
Kokatat have fine-tuned this product to the max and will make it hard for boaters to look anywhere else!
