    Q:

    Is this the same neck gasket as in the gasket kit? Also, does this neck gasket work with non-NRS drytops, or is it the kit that is needed for non-NRS?

      A:

      Kevin,
      I'm sure the gaskets in the kits are the same as those sold separately. Latex gaskets are pretty universal between various drysuits and tops. I've used NRS gaskets on my Bomber and Kokatat drysuits and tops. It's usually the neck gaskets that tend to wear out quickest. I have a medium Kokatat and have used a large size gasket as a replacement...less time stretching out the gasket so I don't pass out! My thought is less stretching should provide longer wear. Just try it on before attaching to see how tight it is before any stretching. Gaskets will loosen a bit as you're wearing them and over time loosen up a bit as well, so better to under rather than over-stretch. NRS has a good how-to replace format on their site. Using the proper size form is probably the most important part. Personally, I wouldn't bother getting the kit...just the gasket and the tube of aquaseal. Aquaseal works great to repair small holes in gear and as an adhesive on the boat. Good luck. It can be a messy job.

      How about this:
      I used this neck gasket to replace a torn one in a Kokatat goretex dry suite.. The NRS replacement gasket shape is slightly different but it fits and functions just fine. The NRS gasket has wider mid section but should attach in a similar fashion.

      A:

      Yes, Kevin, these are the same gaskets that are in the kits. Our repairs folks report that while some tops and suits (because of the size of the opening) can take a bit more work, they've never found one that our gaskets won't fit.

      A:

      Not sure what is included in the kit. The neck gaskets I have used have worked on several brands of drytops. I believe they are sized for all brands.. Use the paint can method to fix the gasket and it comes out perfectly. Place the drytop with cleaned up neck gasket on the bottom of the can. Take your new gasket and bring it down the top of the can and have the two pieces overlap around an inch. Then roll the new gasket up the can an inch or so, scuff the gaskets, apply the adhesive and simply roll the new gasket to the 1" overlap and leave on the can to dry overnight

      A:

      Frank, look on the inside of the gasket to see if the size ID is still there. Since you say that the gaskets are replacements, we can't say what size the gaskets would be, but here's what the originals would be - http://www.nrs.com/repair/gasket_sizing.asp

      Unless its printed on the inside of the gasket…
      Most new gaskets I have installed have the size marked on the inside.

      HI -
       
      My neck is 12 1/2".  I always get the small neck gasket.  It may be a little tight at first, but stretches out.  It can always be trimmed slightly if too tight.

      Hi Sarah,
      I have a Kokatat drysuit Lg size which came with a Lg sz neck gasket so that's what I've used for sizing on my replacement gaskets. I see the NRS Lg is for 15" to 18" circ and I measure 14" circ at largest point(around Adam's apple). I still have to do a moderate amount of stretching on the new neck gasket after I've glued it on the suit. Check the size on your suit since that's probably the neck gasket size it came with. My thought is the less you have to stretch a new gasket...the longer the life of it. You probably would do fine with a medium. If you have a local kayak shop which sells them, I would buy it there. Just slip it on before you buy it. NRS does give good replacement instructions. A good form makes it much easier. Good luck and happy paddling.

      If get a small and it is too small you can stretch it or cut it larger (carefully), then get a medium next time. If you get a medium and it's too big, not much you can do about that. Lamar

      I needed a gasket repair and I needed it quick. NRS employees reacted with a calm, dedicated approach. They laid out the gme plan and executed. Within 2 weeks my drysuit was back in my hands in PA, and my trip to the Grand Canyon was saved. The weather in February was tough and the drysuit was a must have item. Thanks guys.

      The product I am writing about has already failed. I had this brand new neck gasket on my drysuit for barely over a month, before it ripped off from the bottom up, then spiraled around the lower part of the gasket just above the glue line. I have never seen a gasket rip from the bottom up before. For a brand new product I am very let down, and frustrated to once again be repairing my drysuit instead of paddling. This has been my first experience with NRS gaskets, didn't make the best first impression but due to the availability of the small size at my local shop I'm giving it another shot.

          Written instructions and video excellent. Appears very solid and aesthetically pleasing when followed. Having made forms once it is easy to see they can be re-used, and more money saved. I'll see how it holds over time. I expect well looking at initial construction.
