CKS will likely be offering both suits at a good discount a PADDLEFEST next weekend.
Ended up finding a hardly used Kokatat GMER with Kokatat polartec union suit for package price of $450...picking that up and calling it good.
After a week renting a drysuit from Kayak Academy it is hard to put the neoprene layer under the splash gear and get out of the water damp...dry suit seems to be the only way to go in this sport in cold river water, super comfy, much more manuverability and you get out of the river and dry suit and you're dry! what a concept. I recommend one to everyone!
See ya on the watah!
