Dry Suits

I know there has been some talk about this already but I'm wondering which brand is the best. I'm pretty sure I want the booties, tunnel, and relief zipper. I talked to the guys at CKS and the consensus is that the best one they carry is the Kokatat GMER. They don't carry Palm, so I'm curious how that one compares. Any significant differences in warranties and service plans? Thanks.

Kokatat has been fantastic to me and their product is outstanding.

There's already a pretty good discussion here - https://www.mountainbuzz.com/forums/f...als-16077.html. Also I wanted to add for people that NRS is clearing out their drysuits for this year. They're at least 30% off and you can get them from Confluence. Check them at Confluence Kayaks - Denver Kayak Instruction or call 303.433.3676.

However, I do have to say that the Kokatat GMER with the relief zipper, booties and tunnel is absolutely where it's at. You can wear jeans and cotton kayaking if you really want.

The GMER is the Meridian with a relief zipper.
The base Meridian has no relief zipper.

I Think the GMER is the best drysuit made, period! It's expensive but worth every penny. Atom..
