I would also think that Barb would be a wealth of information about women's relief zippers and systems.

My preference is the pstyle: Women stand to pee | The pStyle
And a Front zipper. I wish I had a lowered zipper, but this still works.
The pstyle fits in my pfd pocket.

I am a kayaker and I love my Kokatat drop seat dry suit. I cannot even tell it's there in the Jackson boats (Karma, Little Hero, Zen). It however is a little uncomfortable in my playboat(Star), but I rarely wear my dry suit when play boating so this is not a big deal to me. It is worth it to be able to drop that seat when needed. When it comes to the funnel . . . love the Whiz Freedom!

Just giving ya grief, Mike.

#2: I bought my wife the Kokatat drop-seat suit, back when she was primarily rafting and also paddling an Aire "Force" I.K. She said it was too big of a problem in the I.K., but she did feel it once in a while. Then, she decided she wanted to start truly kayaking. She has found the dropseat zipper to be a major pain in the ass and thighs, literally. It takes her a while to get the zipper and extra folds of material positioned before she ever gets to putting on her sprayskirt, then I watch her constantly trying to shift back up in the seat without having to pop her skirt. Every time she gets out to pee, the whole process starts over, and it seems to take forever.
If she sticks with the kayaking this time..... we're gonna have to spring for a new suit with a front relief zipper.

So many rivers, so little time..........
