The Kokatat Gore-Tex Supernova Angler is a front entry fishing specific paddling suit built with lightweight and breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX fabric in its main body and military-grade 330 denier GORE-TEX Cordura® fabric in the lap, knees, seat, and elbows for added durability in the case of an errand fishing hook Read More
The Kokatat Gore-Tex SuperNova Angler Paddling suit comes standard with latex wrist gaskets with adjustable neoprene over-cuffs at the wrists, gravel guards at the ankles, waterproof breathable dry-socks made of 3-layer GoreTex fabric, a men's Relief Zipper (for speed and convenience when nature calls), and a front entry zipper that runs diagonally across the chest of the suit making it easy to get in and out of.
The Kokatat Gore-Tex SuperNova Angler paddling suit has a neoprene neck collar. The Neoprene neck doesn't seal as well as a drysuit latex neck gasket, but it is a lot more comfortable than a latex gasket. As long as you aren't practicing multiple rolls in a kayak or going for a long swim off shore, the neoprene neck on the Goretex SuperNova Angler suit may be good enough for your fishing and paddling needs. In other words, you will get several spoons full of water down the neck each time your head and/or neck go under water, but from the neck down the Angler suit is built the same as a dry suit, and it beats the heck out of swimming in waders. For surf fishing, you'll even be able to fish longer on incoming tides before worrying about water going over the top of your waders as you walk back to shore.
