More Switch-Zip pieces offer more customization and comfort for paddlers.

With the major success of their whitewater two-piece drysuit, the Idol, Kokatat has expanded upon their Switch-Zip technology by adding new pieces that are all interchangeable. Now you can buy a full drysuit, but also pick up a paddling top that can zip in for lighter touring or hot days.

Kokatat Radius Drysuit has touring features and is capable of mixing and matching tops or pants.

Kokatat's new Radius drysuit (above) is designed to offer touring paddlers a Switch-Zip drysuit all their own. Built in touring features can be swapped out for their new paddling top, the Passage splash top, for a lightweight and comfortable suit that you can paddle in all day long. 

Keep it Light, Keep it Fun

They've also released a new lightweight paddling suit that would be perfect for warm weather paddling, endurance racing or standup paddleboarding. The new Surge lightweight paddling suit also features the same Switch-Zip technology, but features lycra gaskets for more comfort and breathability. The best thing about a lightweight paddling suit with a two piece zipper? You can mix and match the top with your dry suit pants (or vice versa) and create a superlight splash suit on hot days. 

They've also added new hoods and colors that are sure to please paddlers and be able to suit any style. Maybe even match your boat!
