Ultra tough and cut to allow for excellent range of motion. Cordura reinforcement in the seat and on the knees are great for portaging though the woods or hanging out on the beach. Forrest W.

The metal tooth front entry and relief zippers have been replaced by nylon zippers which are much lower profile, less work to open and close, and easier to keep clean and lubricated. Having less bulk across the front of the suit and in the seat will make for an ever more comfortable fit under your life-jacket and while sitting in your kayak. Additionally, instead of layered on patches, Cordura® GORE-TEX® has been integrated directly into the high wear areas of the seat and knees providing the same durability in a cleaner, thinner package.
