The Kokatat Endurance Semi Dry Suit (GORE-TEX®) offers 3-layer waterproof protection and superior breathability for fitness, stand up, or recreational paddlers who require a high performance lightweight suit. With a one-hand adjustable neo-cinch neoprene collar, latex wrist cuffs and low profile flexible zippers on the entry and relief zippers.
A dry suit is going to have a latex neck gasket intended to keep 100% of the water out of the suit. The dry suit is a great option for paddlers who will be immersing themselves intentionally and or on a regular basis. A semi dry suit has a neoprene cinch gasket, which is more comfortable to wear for long periods of time. A neoprene gasket will however let some water in. Is it a lot? No, but enough that if you went over multiple times you would start to "feel the effects". The semi dry suit is a good choice for paddlers who are looking for a high level of thermal protection to protect against incidental immersion in flat water. We use the term "flat-water" here, since this type of suit would not be good for dynamic environments like the surf or the river for example.
In short a semi dry suit is more comfortable for flat water / recreational paddling while the kayak dry suit is the better option for more challenging conditions or intentional or frequent immersion.
