I am definitely an odd size. short and stocky. Like a tree stump, or a dwarf,(like from the hobbit, not reality TV, ya bastids.) but slightly less hairy. 5'7" and 235 lbs. XXL shoulders and M length inseam. but XL width. hows that for WTF sizing...
I was able to get a prodeal through a FireDept. friend, and have a custom XXL GMER made. and although I needed 5" off inseam, and 3" off arms, they would only do 3" off the legs and 2" off the arms. SO, I have a sweet custom top of the line, baggy-ass Drysuit.
it works. for sure. I just was HOPING, that for almost a G, I could get my actual dimensions. But seeing as how kokatat are very good at what they do, I am sure there was some issues with constructing it that i am unaware of. Honestly its no big deal, except If it ever were to fill up with water, due to zipper fail or whatever circumstance, on a swim, then it would fill a lot more volume of water. and that would suck.gigantically. so i double check my zippers always, and btw speaking of zippers. zipperwax is a crucial addition to owning a drysuit.
And if anyone is in northern NM, ABQ/SF area, and needs, i can still order Kokatat through my friend, she is an official dealer.... pm me if that sounds helpful.
Last thought.... several friends are set to order the Level six Emperor suit from NRS. It looks pretty damn sweet for the price. lighter weight for sure, then goretex, but till H20 proof, and pretty darn stylish.and $$$ less then kokatat on proform.
I have their drytop and its good for 3season paddling.
If i were getting a new drysuit I would stick with kokatat, and go Icon. (if i had the $$)
