I bought Kokatat Gortex suit in 2001. After 5 years of use, I sent suit to Kokatat to replace gaskets. They called me in week and said material of suit started delaminating, this is warranty issue and they want to replace suit for free. I said - sure. Got new suit. Five years later, this February sent suit back to replace gaskets. Same story: got another brand new suit again.
Kokatat give LIFETIME warranty on Goretex suits.

Tough to beat $50 a year ... so far ... for a GoreTex suit.

i also had a kokatat goretex suit replaced under warranty after about 5 years.

good people..., hope they stay in business, with all the free suits they are giving away..

i don't use my drysuit for windsurfing - i only use it for dinghy racing. just couldn't get used to it on the board. the goretex socks didn't feel good in my booties either.

the one complaint i have about kokatat is the sizing. i am ~5' 10.5", and about 160-165lbs.

i really can't get in the medium, i'm just a tiny bit too tall, and it's really hard to get my head through the neck hole. also, in dinghy racing, it's really important to be able to crouch down.

anyway, i had to go with the large, which is huge on me...

what about a medium-tall? and anyway, it's not like i'm that tall.

i know they have custom sizes, and maybe that's what i should do.
