The shell is a mix of heavy duty 410 denier pack cloth in high-wear areas and 70 denier taffeta where more flexibility is needed. The laminate is constructed from IR's proprietary 3 layer WhiteOut waterproof breathable barrier specifically designed to handle active, sweaty conditions found inside a drysuit. The suit has latex booties instead of fabric socks because they are more durable, easy to replace and you can patch them in the field with Aqua Seal.
Both the front main zip and relief zip are flexible T-Zip zippers. Every single seam is designed for ease of taping, and every cross-seam is hot pressed.
The Front-Entry main zipper includes an additional smaller semi waterproof YKK zip that travels the length of the outer zipper flap. This makes the outer tunnel of the drysuit almost as dry as a outer tunnel on a dry top, and also allows you to get the zipper flap to lay flat without the bumps and creases found with velcro flap seals.
An industrial-strength, front-entry dry suit made with IR's proprietary waterproof breathable technology custom-made for the rigors of paddlesports
Supple 100% nylon shell has a great hand feel and is highly tear resistant. Fabric weight is 188 gm/ sq. meter
Design puts a premium on simplicity and durability, making it a great choice for anyone who is hard on gear or looking for a great value in a breathable drysuit
Outer tunnel makes it appropriate for any high-end kayaking, while the front, cross-chest main zipper allows for easier entry.
Latex socks offer long-lasting, form-fitting, dry foot protection that is easily replaceable.

Carriers impose varying size restrictions on international shipments and as such not all shipment methods will be available for all products. These restrictions include, but are not limited to, One-Piece Kayak and SUP Paddles which can not be shipped internationally via the United States Postal Service. You may select to ship the items via UPS or choose to custom order a break-down configuration. Kayak paddles can be ordered in 2 or 4 piece configurations, SUP paddles can be ordered in a 3 piece travel configuration.
One Piece Paddles
Due to the oversize nature of one piece whitewater and SUP paddles, and recent changes in the shipping industry, standard shipping on these items starts at $14.95. One-Piece Kayak and SUP Paddles cannot be shipped internationally via the United States Postal Service. You may select to ship the items via UPS or choose to custom order a break-down configuration. Kayak paddles can be ordered in either 2 or 4 piece configurations, while SUP paddles can be ordered in a 3 piece travel configuration.
The cost of standard shipping on heavier items shipped within the continental U.S. will range in price from $14.95 - $24.95 depending on the size and weight. To find out the exact cost of shipping, simply add the item to your cart and enter the required shipping info.
Kayaks and SUP's
Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are only available for in-store pickup or local delivery within the Puget Sound area of Western Washington. Delivery is free within Kitsap County for boat and board purchases over $1000.00 and starts at $50.00 otherwise. The same topography which makes the Puget Sound area such a wonderful place to paddle, also makes it difficult for us to make deliveries. We all love riding the ferries, but they sure can get expensive!
We do not have the ability to ship Kayaks or SUP's outside of Western Washington at this time.
We know things can change so address corrections do happen. If the correction is due to our error or if the package has not shipped from our facility there is no charge, so notify us as soon as possible. Once the package has shipped there is a service fee up to $15.00 to change the delivery address that is charged to us by the carrier. We may not be able to change the address once the package is in transit and it may have to be returned to us for reshipment. If that's the case then you will be liable for any additional shipping costs.
We understand that it can be difficult to get that perfect piece of gear the first time around. That is why here at Olympic Outdoor Center if you are not completely satisfied with your purchase we will grant a full refund or exchange the product for your preferred size or color. Customers are responsible for the shipping costs for returns and/or exchanges. OOC will pay the shipping costs, including shipping refunds, if the return is a result of our error or a manufacturing defect (return tracking number required). Learn More
Do not measure yourself. Measurements should be performed by an authorized and trained IR retailer. Failing that, someone you trust to get in close with a cloth measuring tape.
Just relax! Look forward and stand up straight with your feet about 12 inches apart. Don’t move around and look straight ahead. Stop looking at your measuring partner or the floor.
Remember… measure twice, cut once.
Chest: Take this measurement at the widest point. This is usually at the nipple area. Do not hold your breath, just relax. If the person is muscular, take a second measurement at the armpit area, across the upper chest. Use the larger of the two measurements.
Waist: Measure just above your hip bone where your body bends when bending sideways.
Inseam: This is also referred to as the “crotch to ankle bone” measurement for those very secure individuals. Have the person stand with legs straight and feet about 12" apart. Have them hold their hand to the side, with palm facing out. Place the end of the measuring tape between their first two fingers. Ask them to place the hand with the tape in their crotch area, snug up against the body. Just relax! Stretch the tape straight down your ankle bone. Ask the person to look straight ahead, turn their head to the right and cough.
