Kokatat Drysuits

KokataT Drysuit

The men’s GORE-TEX Meridian Drysuit from Kokatat is built to stand the test of any paddling adventure. Exclusive “full immersion” GORE-TEX Pro Shell fabric is tough as nails, yet quiet and comfortable. Latex neck and wrist gaskets, along with integrated GORE-TEX socks, keep you dry. The Competition Cut underarm maximizes range of motion. An Optiseal waterproof chest zipper makes the Meridian easy to take on and off. The double-tunnel waist mates with your spray skirt for a completely dry system. A relief zipper gives you easy access when nature calls. Reinforced Cordura seat and knee patches add longevity. The Kokatat men’s GORE-TEX Meridan dry-uit sets the benchmark for dry comfort.

The Kokatat’s Power Dry Drysuit Liner is a great addition to the Drysuit. It is designed to and provide great thermal protection.

The average retail price is between $920 and $960, but for paddlers who want to enjoy the water year-round, the Drysuit negates even the coldest and wettest of conditions and allows your fishing season to go on uninterrupted.

The Fish Grip

Putting your hand in the water and lipping your catch is rarely a big deal unless: the fish you’re grabbing come equipped with sharp teeth or the frigid water where your caught the fish has some “bite” to it.

With the rise of kayak fishing has come The Fish Grip, a fish- landing device developed by avid anglers to find a safer way to land a fish — safer for the fish and the angler.

The Fish Grip comes in two models, the Fish Grip and the Fish Grip Jr, a smaller version for anglers with smaller hands or for landing smaller fish.

The Fish Grip is manufactured by United Plastic Molders. Each grip is machined, constructed, inspected, and tested at the manufacturing plant located in Jackson, Miss.

The Fish Grip retails for $14.95 and comes available in a variety of colors.
