Made by hand in Arcata, California Kokatat builds thousands of dry suits, one at a time, every year in their factory in northern California. For more than 40 years they have developed design patterns and manufacturing techniques that ensure that each suit they sell is completely dry. In fact, they perform an individual water test on every suit they make.
If they can’t fit you into one of their stock sizes, why not get a dry suit made to order. On the other hand, explore your individuality. Choose your own unique color combination and select from a long list of additional options and you’ll end up with a suit that fits like a glove (that’s confusing) and a look that will be the envy of your paddling partners.
Kokatat will hand build a dry suit from the measurements and information provided by our customer. We recommend that all measurements be performed by an authorised and trained Kokatat retailer. Be sure to follow the measuring instructions below carefully. Kokatat is not responsible for the fit of a dry suit if the information provided is incorrect or incomplete. Measure twice, cut once. Please note these will be special orders and CANNOT be returned if incorrect.
CHEST:Take this measurement at the widest point. This is usually at the nipple area. Do not hold your breath, just relax. If the person is muscular, take a second measurement at the armpit area, across the upper chest. Use the larger of the two measurements.
WAIST: Measure just above your hip bone where your body bends when bending sideways.
HIPS: Take this measurement from the side to ensure the correct placement of the tape. Place the tape around the hips and across the widest point of the buttocks. This might be a good time to come up with a descriptive word other than “widest”. Make sure that all pockets are empty.
INSEAM: This is also referred to as the “crotch to ankle bone” measurement for those very secure individuals. Have the person stand with legs straight and feet about 12” apart. Have them hold their hand to the side, with palm facing out. Place the end of the measuring tape between their first two fingers. Ask them to place the hand with the tape in their crotch area, snug up against the body. Just relax! Stretch the tape straight down your ankle bone. Ask the person to look straight ahead, turn their head to the right and cough.
GIRTH: This measurement is for the entire torso length. Place the tape at the base of the neck on top of the shoulder. Run the tape down the front, through the crotch and up the back to the starting point on the shoulder.
This final measurement should be taken on the backside:
SPINE TO WRIST: Hold arm directly out to the side, parallel to the floor, palm down. Bend the elbow forward, stop hand in front of nose. Place the tape at the base of the neck, starting at the spine. Run tape along the arm, turn at the elbow, measuring to the wrist bone.
Kokatat garments are sized with ample room for ventilation and to be comfortable over an insulating layer. For all stock product please refer to the stock sizes in the sizing chart.
If you don’t fit into the stock sizes, Kokatat can add and subtract length in the sleeves and arms, and add length to the torso of stock sizes. See our custom suit builder for more details.
