Replacing a drysuit zipper is not DIY, and it's a very expensive repair. Preventative care, such as like regularly cleaning and lubricating drysuit zipper teeth, will help preserve zipper health. 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.

Comments about Level Six Emperor Kayak Drysuit:

I've used this drysuit every spring on the Ottawa River and on the surrounding Ottawa Valley rivers. I've taken it down the Grand Canyon in December. I have also done ice rescue and SRT courses in this drysuit. It has NEVER LET ME DOWN!

I've had it for two years and I haven't had any major leaks. I had one minor leak in the foot once and was able to repair it with an clothing iron as the seam tape is heat activated. I called Level Six for advice, and they were great, real professionals.They walked me through the repair and it took me five minutes to do. The drysuit is good as new and hasn't let me down, as they gave me great advice on how to care for it.

I love the Emperor.

Comments about Level Six Emperor Kayak Drysuit:

i raft/kayak/packraft cold river in AK with this thing...and i have NEVER come out dry.
whether its guiding, paddling, or swimming, this thing is a real disappointment. I have used our company's customer issue suits, which are 15 years old, and have stayed drier. go with kokatat.

    Comments about Level Six Emperor Kayak Drysuit:

    I use this drysuit for river running on a paddleboard (so I fall in the water frequently). It is a purchase I regret. My friend with who I run river is also wearing a level six dry suit; neither of us never come out dry of the water. The drysuit leaked at first use after purchase. It was sent back to level six. Even though it has been aquasealed on several seams and all around the zip it still leaks a lot especially at the feet and a bit on the waist from the zips. It should also be noted that these are made very big. I am 5'8 and the XS is way too big for me. Last Level Six product for me. I am looking forward to buy a better drysuit.

    • Level Six Emperor Kayak Drysuit


      If I am 6'1" 205 lbs with a 34" waist, is the XL going to be way to big for me? I want all the pads to match up for when I'm rafting and not kayaking.
      I hate when things are way to big.

        XL should work just fine for you. If not, we offer Hassle-Free returns, so you can exchange for a smaller size.
