Become an idol.
With an insatiable desire to consistently offer the best dry suit on the market, Kokotat took it one step further by teaming up with Gore-Tex to create the Men's Idol Gore-Tex Drysuit. An impenetrable fortress of river-running mastery, the Idol is composed mainly of three-layer Gore-Tex Pro shell, which denies entry to frigid, rushing water, while allowing the potentially day-ruining, clammy build ups of sweat and moisture to escape easily. Aside from superior breathability and waterproofing, extra protection from certain thrashing on the river is found in the Evolution nylon body and 330 Cordura shoulders, sleeves, and legs.
Maximizing versatility and ensuring a full range-of-motion, Kokotat implemented its waist-length SwitchZip separating entry that makes putting it on a breeze while providing the option of wearing the Idol as a full suit or as a dry top. The zipper on the SwitchZip entry is strategically placed on the lower back to nestle in between the back band and seat, so as to not poke you while ripping through rapids. The latex gaskets with neoprene punch-through collar and cuffs keep chafing to a minimum. Throw your keys in the self-draining, zippered sleeve pocket and spend all day on the water in dry comfort.

Killer Dry Suit
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Liked it so much I convinced my sister to get one!
Excellent drysuit - worth every penny!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I am a 5'2" female that weighs between 125-132 (I haven't weighed myself in a while). I bought the men's small idol drysuit because although the hips are 1 inch narrower than the woman's size, the waist of the men's suit is 1 inch larger and the weight limit is 20 lbs higher. The idol drysuit is super comfortable and so easy to put on. I love the fact that I can wear just the dry pants by themselves. I have the Kokatat Meridian (with dropseat) woman's small drysuit (5 years), but splurged on the idol drysuit so that I could have an easy to get out of drysuit. The neck is tight so I used a CDRom spiral cover to stretch out the neck for a couple of weeks. Use gatorade bottles to stretch to the wrists. I love not having a zipper in the front - it makes for a nice comfortable kayaking trip. No zipper in the back (for women) is just awesome. Strongly, strongly recommend this drysuit!
