Who needs new gaskets? Drytop repair in Boulder

We are now offering gasket replacement at whitewater tube/CKS Rental Center in Boulder. Total cost is $60 including the new gasket and labor. That's a great deal. Bring your drytops or drysuits in for new gaskets to our new location at 3600 Arapahoe.

I am placing an order this week for gaskets, so let me know if you plan on bringing one in or if you just need to buy a gasket. It will help to know which sizes are needed.

Can you put gaskets into a top that currently has neoprene at the wrist? I love my top put the neoprene isn't cutting it!

Yes! I just walked outside to see my kokotat rogue's neck gasket split on both sides. Need a new neck gasket badly!

When is the best time to bring it by?

how old is your rougue?

I just bought a brand new rougue last season, and the neck gasket tore first day this season after only about a half dozen days at most last season.

Not sure what gives--I used (abused?) my lotus for 4-5 years of fairly decent use, 20-30 days per year, before it needed a new gasket, and only 5-6 days on the kokotat????

...and NOOOO, it was not nicked, cut, pinched, etc., etc., etc.--as the mindless CKS cashier jockey was so intent on implying as he stetched and pulled the un-torn portion attempting to convince (pressure) me into agreeing with him--try some customer service next time, douchebag...

Must say, kokotat was awesome to replace it as a "courtesy" (i.e. not warranty)--and Jen at CKS was awesome too--but even so, a neck gasket should not tear after so little use.

My rogue is about 1 season old used roughly 20 times. I thought it ripped so soon because I didnt 303 it soon enough, but thats still whack that it ripped so soon.

awesome dry top, shady neck gasket.

hopefully i can get it fixed!

thanks kashner--not the news I was hoping to hear though--still waaay too short lifespan on the gasket for the kokatat price

found this discussion from last year, which is even more bad kokatat news:

Latex Gasket Care: 303 vs. ArmorAll vs. McNett "Seal Saver"

anyone have any experience with the mcnett seal savor?
