I've heard good things about OS drysuits also, even in comparison to Kokatat, and they offer some customization options. Base price is less.

NRS is evil. they will carry a company for a bit then copy said companies design, sell it for 10 bucks less and *u#K that company. I just got a GMER this summer I tried to figure out the difference from Gore tex to the nrs fabrik. I never really got down to it so I went with recomendations. a co-worker of mine has had a kokatat since the late 80's, he sent her in a few yrs back and got all new gaskets put in for a couple hundred bucks .

I've been with O.S. Systems for fifteen plus years. The only way I'd ever wear anything else is if O.S. went out of business. Wurd!

For anyone interested in a Palm, they are for sale in the UK for cheap, now that the conversion is more favorable towards us:

Wetsuit Outlet Palm Stikine Extreme Kayak Drysuit + Free Fleece

499 Euro for the Stikine=$625
399 Euro for the Torrent=$500

I think shipping is about $40

Check out the IR Double D. I've had mine for a year with close to 100 days on it and it's still going strong. I find the rear entry zipper more comfortable than the front when paddling and it lets in less water through my skirt tunnel. It's also a fair bit cheaper than the Kokatat.

NRS Inversion Kayak Drysuit 4 Sale

I have a medium, blue, NRS inversion kayak drysuit. It was just bought, Oct. '08, for a Nov. '08 Grand Canyon trip. I just got back on Wed. It was worn for 12 days, from Phantom to Diamond Creek, and I'd like to sell it for $420. Let me know if you're interested.

My mistake on the Palm prices. THose are Pounds, not Euros, meaning $750, not $625 for the Stikine, not sure about the Torrent.
