one more consideration

kokatat = made in the usa and the customer service is awesome. i just had 2" added to the legs for $35, plus they patched a pinhole for free.

I'll second Kayak Academy! They have awesome customer service and they know their drysuits. Just FYI, since they deal almost exclusively in Kokotat- that is what they rent.

Kayak Academy seems to have a lot of really info about dry suits in general on their website, and they have a wide range of women's dry suits available. Glad to hear that they have good customer service. Has anyone used the Kokotat Super Nova suit. It's made with their Tropos fabric, has a neoprene neck gasket with latex wrists. I've never needed a dry suit up to now, but I have several early & late season trips planned this year, and I think it may come in handy, and perhaps help save my ass in a pinch. I'm a cat boater, and normally stay relatively high & dry, so I won't wear the dry suit on a regular basis like a kayaker would. A full on Gortex suit would be sweet, but may be out of my budget.
Thanks for the input.
