Also, using good techniques to roll and fold the drysuit for transportation to and from the water will help prevent fatal damage.In this instructional video, NRS Repairs guru Josh Gile goes over all the tips for ensuring that the zipper will last the life of your drysuit.

    Q:

      A:

      Kristina, the two main differences are the Limited Edition model has a rear entry zipper, across the top of the shoulders. The Meridian has a cross-chest front zipper. Also, the Limited Edition has some burlier Cordura Gore-Tex on the arms, shoulders and legs.

Comments about Kokatat Women's Gore-Tex Meridian Drysuit with Drop Seat - WGMED:

I use my drysuit for kayaking year round due to the cold water of the Nantahala River. It's very comfortable except for the drop seat zipper which is awkwardly placed for kayak hip pads and very hard to unzip. In retrospect I would get the men's and use a funnel. The suit keeps me dry from river water but I've been wearing Hydroskins under it and I sweat a lot when the air temperatures are high. A friend of mine uses the Kokatat one-piece fleece liner and likes that.
