Black Friday deals on drysuits? or other kayaking gear...

Is the general consensus that the Kokatat goretex suit is the gold standard?

Kokatat | GORE-TEX® Meridian Dry Suit with Relief Zipper and Socks - Limited Edition

This one is about $1185

Any black Friday deals going on?

Any stores are welcome to post or contact me cause I AM buying one soon. (Like in the next 2 weeks) Just waiting for a deal to pop up!

Bought a meridian non goretex.... They have a new fabric that is as close as possible to goretex but a lot less money... A real good product so far for me and still has lifetime
Warranty as well..FYI...

40% off any one regular priced item at Golden River Sports this Fri, Sat and Sun. Don't carry Kokatat....but I love my IR drysuit. I just put it through the paces on the Grand Canyon and it was awesome!

Lifetime warranty would be the #1 reason to buy a Kokatat suit.

Goretex is a close 2nd.
Figure that your torso and legs are pretty much covered by your PFD and boat, so only your arms can breathe at all, so with the lifetime warranty, a Meridian like yours would be well worth considering.

I've had Kokatat replace a 10-year old suit. Great company and service, because of it, I can't recommend anything else.
