The Kokatat Men's Polartec® Power Dry® liner provides warmth and moisture wicking without excess bulk. The union suit design works great under a drysuit, and the fabric comes from 92% recycled material.
  • Four-way-stretch Polartec Power Dry material keeps you warm and transports moisture away from your skin so you can paddle in comfort all day.
  • The soft velour interior feels great against your skin.
  • The paddling-specific design and durable jersey facing enable smooth layering with outer layers such as drysuits and dry tops.
  • A front entry zipper makes this union suit easy to put on and take off, and the zip flap and chin guard keep the zipper from rubbing.
  • The convenient men's relief zipper lets you answer nature's call without removing the liner.
  • Articulated for comfort and unrestricted movement.
  • Flat-stitched seams for rugged durability and next-to-skin comfort.

    Recently reviewed this. Home sick with the flu and apparently a little delirious! Comments were in regard to my Drysuit!
    Power dry liner is great except for feeling a little short going over the shoulders. I am 6'3". Suit is XL.

    ALL GOOD.

      Comments about Kokatat Men's Polartec Power Dry Liner:

      I use this for cold water ocean kayaking. The zipper is challenging for me to get started. I am left handed. Not sure if this is a factor. It broke the first time I endeavored to put it on. I considered returning it and going old school but decided to stick it out based on two Maine guides I know who love it. Glad I did.
      Kokakat fixed it. It is still a little tricky for me to start the zipper but is becoming less so with practice and break in.
      The suit is very comfortable to paddle in, breathes beautifully and, forgive me, but when nature calls (#1!), I can take care of it in open water. Key for big water or poor landing conditions!
      Great suit and new technology.

          The dry-suit liner prevents the dry suit from feeling cold and clammy, or hot and clammy.

          Item was "out of stock" and the delivery date was several weeks away. But NRS having been upfront with this information was appreciated.

            I wear my union suit as a base layer under my dry suit. Despite being light, and so thin you can see through it, it's amazingly warm. I kayak white water year 'round and this combo is good down to 40's.

              Q:

              Hello
              Im new at kayaking and Im having trouble trying to find out if this Kokatat liner is all I need to wick moisture from my body and also provide insulation in one product when wearing under my Kokatat GFER Drysuit in centeral California coastal waters. Or does it only provide the base or wicking layer, requiring me to purchase and add an insulating fabric such as fleece to keep me warm. I understand the colder the water, the more insulation needed to layer over the base layer. But does this liner have any insulating ability at all so I can start with it in warmer water and add to it as the water gets colder? I can't seem to find basic information to go by conserning what to wear under a drysuit for a given water temprature. Thank you
              John D.

                A:

                Yes, it has good insulating properties and makes a great starter underlayer. Depending on conditions you may need to add extra layers.

                Assuming the water is 32', John, I say wearing it alone under the dry suit will suffice in the late fall and early spring.  I am a whitewater kayaker( in New England)  so I can't compare what coastal water is like in terms of windchill.  I assume you are a sea kayaker not really planning an immersion.   However, when your splashed-on lifejacket zipper starts to freeze shut, it's time to consider some long underwear.  My boyfriend, who this product was a gift for,  prefers the EMS lightweight polypro variety.  My hands always get cold first, a warning sign of a cold core.  I find that a good hat and the NRS mittens get the job done instead of extra clothing.  All in all, it's a great garment and very comfortable next to the skin.  I hope this helps.

              Q:

              I am right on the edge of M or L size/weight and will use under a dry suit for winter (cold) kayaking. Is it better to size up for a looser and presumably,warmer fit?

                I sized up, and am happy I did. You don't want something to tight constricting your motion. My opinion anyways.

                A:

                I would go with the large so you won't have the chance of feeling restricted movement.  Also, you might want to wear light long underwear under it in an extremely cold venue.  Lastly, I don't know if there is any expected shrinkage in the washer/dryer.
